Sable wheels/snow tires

I was able to find 15" Mercury Sable rims on Craigslist for $50.00. I could have gotten them for free but I screwed up by looking too late. They listed back in November but I started looking in December.

Turns out the guy emailed me back saying he basically gave the rims to a Discount tire store near my work. They still had them but wanted 100.00 for the set of 4. I talked them down to 50.00 and picked them up today.

Costco had a coupon deal for 100.00 off Bridgestone tires but it expired on Dec 18th.

However the store said they would honor the price if they had them in stock. So I went there today and had them mount 195-65-15's Blizzak W70s on the rims. Total out the door price was 371.00 which includes: nitrogen, life time rotations/balance and road hazard warranty.

Total cost for rims and snow tires 431.00

Not my favorite looking rim but for cheap winter rims they will do. This way my Black machined 17s stay out of salt for the winter and I have better traction.

Should I leave the caps off?

A machinist at work said bring one in and he would see what he can make me but I doubt he can after seening them off.
