No School today, so I bought wheels and tires.

Left work today to go to school (as I usually do) then realized when I got to an empty parking lot, that school was canceled. Having nothing to do, I went to Discount Tires and finally pulled the trigger on getting some wheels and tires. Logical, right? They pricematched some Sparco Terra's for me, and gave me a screamin deal on some tires too all with 0% 9 month financing. I forget which tires, but I'll find the receipt later. The manager (who I was dealing with) said that they're some of the best all season tires they offer, with a 60k mile warranty.

DEAR. GOD. LET. FRIDAY. COME. NOW. I can NOT wait to finally have wheels worthy of my car!!! They're replacing the stock steel wheels...

OH. MY GOD. I am so jealous of you right now. I want those wheels so bad. I'm subscribing because I demand you post pics! I'm almost as exited I think to finally see these on a focus, blue at that.

A set of rally armor mudflaps would really set it off to if you don't already have some.

I have Sparco wheels and I think you'll be really happy with them.

I was driving around a misshapen round-about one day and cut the inner curb too close. BANG, the tail kicked out. Hit the rim on the curb.

I got out to inspect the damage. I could tell where the rim hit because the tire was chewed up at that spot. I wiped off some grit on the wheel, and remarkably, there was not a scratch on them.

Your decision making today seems perfectly logical. What did you pay when all was said and done?
