Hey all

Here is dilemna that I am facing... I have new rims sitting in my basement and I am dying to put them on. The problem is:

1. that I live in a new area covered in dust and crap still and they will not be completing the grading and paving till mid July/August.
The rims have a deep dish, will it get killed by the dust and crap?

2. My car will be going in for paint soon in the next few weeks. Should I wait until then and then put them on?

So should I wait or put them on now?

Thanks for your advice in advance.

Here are some pics...

I would leave the old rims on until the painting is done since you dont want to get any over-spray on your new rims.

I say wait till the car is painted, you will see a bigger change in car after paint, kit, rims. You can park your car in the garage so that it doesn't get dirty. I mean if you park your car inside them your only gonna be driving through the dirt for small periods of time

I'm sure he would take them off when he sends the car in for painting. :)

PUT THEM ON JUST FOR A DAY OR SO! ;) hahaha

MP328 lives in the same area, he put his on ! :rolleyes: :P *wave*

That is what I am thinking as well, but it kills me when I see everyone with their rims on and cars shined up....

and I know i have the kit and rims sitting in my basement and my car sitting in dirt. :(

You can do it man! *th-up*
I've been waiting since last october to put my supercharger and rieger kit on my car, and I'm still waiting until I have the cash or until my old e36 sells.
It's a painful wait though :(

your car is going to look awsome.

I agree with the majority - wait. It'll be tough, but you'll kick yourself if they get #@! up.

Wheels are looking good Sanj! Very nice, but wait until the everything else is done. It'll come out looking like a different car.*th-up*
