Ok, first off Im new to rim size stuff, and i know there is a sticky link at the top but i want some live input on this matter.


Ok here is a link to the rims Dgmorr wants to sell me


http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=60688&stc=1&d=1150864959

They measure "15x7 or maybe 7.5"

SO my car runs 14'' stock i believe. What implications will this have and what money will i need to spend to fix it if i buy these rims?

Or will they simply bolt on and be fine and not effect the speedo reading and stuff.


Thanks again guys,

Luke

we have to know what tire size is on them.

and to make them fit "nice" you gotta slam that bitch

exactly what i wanted to hear.


now i need to get money before i leave toronto....Dgmorr, i dont know if i can pull it off this quick but i can try.

I think if i package 2 rims in each box then i can take them on the plane as my 2 checked luggage items and just have a carry on with all my shit in it.


Any ideas?

ya i like em, i think ima get them i just need to find out how to get money off my credit card when it has no pin number...and i cant use a bank cuz well...its my dads credit card heh.

Any ideas there?

I also need to find out if there is a weight limitation on checked baggage with air canada...cuz i think 2 tires on rims per box might be too heavy for what they allow.

The card is actually in your dads name, and you've been using it?

That's just wrong.

There is a weight limit on your 2 checked bags, as well as size. If you're traveling air canada you've got 2 bags which can each weigh up to 50lbs each and have a total linear dimension of 62 inches so fitting 2 wheels in each bag wouldn't be a problem as long as they don't have tires. If they've got tires, it's not gonna happen without paying more. You'll still have tons of room in the wheels too for extra stuff *th-up*
