Or so I thought.

Two months ago I placed a 50% deposit on new wheels for the car: big, shinny, spinning wheels. Hah, just kidding. They’re actually 15×6.5, 4×100, +40 offset, and only about 11 pounds each. Somehow convinced myself that I needed these new rims.

Unfortunately (or luckily), I received a refund on the $200 deposit today. The rims have been out of production in Japan for some time now, and the new attempt to get the rims back into production fell through.

Other lightweight 15″ rims are around $400 each. Argh.
