225/50R16 RE-01Rs are grippier, $150 each, and fit stock SVT wheels. If you don't have 17s...

My only problem is my girlfriend is watching me like a hawk. She is overdue for an engagement ring, and all unnecessary purchases are being scrutinized. It would be hard to say "I can't afford a ring yet" when I spend money on new wheels.




dude..duuude..doooodeee...
wth are you doing?!
overdue for an engagement ring?!?
you have been down there for less than a year!
she needs to sloooooooww down.
hehe

but seriously..you can finance the ring.
and no matter what she says..she doesn not need anything bigger than 1/2 carat..just make sure its flawless.
and she will love it.

The girlfriend and I have been going out for over four years, and she def. is the one. All my friends that started dating when we did are married, and one of them is having a baby. The pressure is on!

Once again I have to thank the CEG community for helping me make this choice. I went with 17" centerline storms (polished) and the deal on goodyear tires. The ring will wait!

Oh, sure. Blame CEG! Well, I would'a told you to buy the ring on credit first, then get the wheels.

Must be that jumbly-wumbly thing happening again.

I can't wait to get these on! The centerline rep I spoke with said these forged wheels should weigh a little less than 15lbs a piece!
