I tend to agree...however...I will need a second set of rims as I will be driving my car in the winter and it is easier to just swap either I can go with factory 19"s..and get some aftermarket 18"s for the winter...(which may be the better thing to do so that I can get 8.5" all around for better winter traction)...or get the factory 18"s and put winter tires on those and get a custom 19"...either way...I have to get a second set of rims...

The other thing that I realized is that I could get someones take-off for about $2K/set...

But...I am getting this customization bug...
