    So apparently my wheels are sold and the dude will be here tomorrow eve to pay me and take them home.
    Still have no idea what wheels I'm going to replace them with yet. No matter what they'll be 18s. May just get the same anthracite FRs in 18". Then I started looking at the charcoal saleens. Now I want some mesh TSW Valencias but they're out of budget. Not sure what to do yet.

    Any cheaper companies make similar style wheels to those TSW mesh staggereds?

    Anyway while I think about it here's some pics that made me have second thoughts on selling them. Ha

    She sure does look pretty tonight. The 18s will be much better though.

    Half way between Cincy and Maryland? Thats quite a haul just to sell some wheels. I would spend more on gas than shipping would run. lol

    I had a set of 17s with tires shipped from Texas to SC an it was about $220. Companies get better shipping rates than us normal people because they ship so much stuff.

    I shipped some large items once using Greyhound bus lines. you guys might want to check them out. I thought the cost was very reasonable.

    I've used Greyhound also and much cheaper than UPS etc but you need to drop off and pickup at terminal.

    for large items like that check out greyhound shipping. Yes just like the buses. They will throw them under the bus(for storage that is) and then pull them out when they get there and put them in a secure are and call you. I sent 2 from seats this way and they were heavy and big and I think it was less then $75 for both.

    No, some woman actually paid him for something with a fake cashiers check. FBI and all that got involved. Crazy


    its all good though cause if that didn't happen I wouldn't have gotten to trade for my new wheels that I got today. No pics till its lowered!!
