Note, you can also rent storage at hundreds of locations in the washington area...a small, climate controlled bin is only like $15/month...it may be worth investing in if you are going to have car parts, house items, and other things that clutter up your life...

I had one before getting married and it was a really good idea...plus most can be accessed 24x7, worth it.

Though my offer is still open.

Oh yes and how many times does that happen around here?

Then again, we do get a foot or 2 from time to time.

I better zip it.

That's a good point in case he needs 24/7 access to his rims.

Anybody have any thoughts on this?

Also, it's only logical that her 162s would be staggered (18X8 front, 18X8.5 rear), right? (Swoop suggests I ask here, and why not start a thread?)

try 19 or 20's tires n rims

Hey, Frank.

I had to take a pass.

I appreciate all the dudes' offers of help, especially Dennis for tolerating my backing out, you for offering to host and Scott for offering spousal-covert storage.

I checked on self-storage, and the cheapest thing anywhere near me is $65 a month. The good places with climate control, like Public Storage, etc., are $120 or $130 for their smallest ones (5X5).

I just can't bring myself to sell the 159s. I love them, plus I want them for bad weather. So, it all just got overwhelming and I hung it up.
