Exactly. Get the car properly sorted first and then worry about cosmetics. I would love to have a set of M Contours but not until I have replaced the cooling system.

He traded straight-up, so no money was lost which could've been used to fix other things.

Can't do that Jesse hoping to at least make a little off them. The used tires cost me 50 bucks so I hope I can get that put of them.

I might raise my rear and throw these on. Would have to pull my spacer out too though. Hmmm choice choices

Like we needed any other reasons

I bought them because they were dirt cheap. $300 for the set.
