wheels now or next year?
 
i just moved in in the new house and the place is a freaking mess :( there is freaking mud everywhere. and they're saying that it will be like this for the next 5 to 6 months until everything settles down. and then they will put the gras and pave tha garage and the drive way and so on.

i wanted to buy the wheels in less then a month away from now. i already put the deposit down cuz i found a great deal on them. but now i'm having second thoughts about it. becauze they will get just messed up from all the mud. and there is no way to keep the car clean. there is so much mud under the car that i couldn't even wash it off *sad*

so what do u guys say ?

wheels now and drive thru the mud or

wait another year (till next spring) and just lower it now and some other exterior mods?

here is a picture of the street

Not only do I think u should get them now, but also get larger wheels, when I got my contours, I first thought they were huge, now they look way too small.

I know Sanj is on the same boat as you, but he got new rims. :) Nice ones too.*th-up* It'll take more than 5-6 months for the dirt tracks to settle, I went through it and it was over a year before it got really better. But yes, you'd have to clean them at least twice a week. If you don't want to go through that and can get the deposit back, wait till next year, and perhaps go 18"s too. :) btw if you want some extra performance, you can pick up other 17"s that are way lighter for around the same price.

and i don't know if i wanna go any bigger then 17's. i don't think i will be doing anything to the car after the wheels, maybe just lower it and thats it. so i don't want to get too slow with them. and i really like these here.
