Holy crap, talk about impulse buy

Ok well its 1:30am here on the pacific. And i just bought a set of wheels and tires from tirerack.
These are the wheels

and the tires are 215/40/17 BFGoodrich Scorcher T/A 's in black.
Total was about 840 but at least this solves my once huge dilemma what to do about getting some rims and using stockers as track rims.
opinions on anything welcome
Alan

Dont worry dan, ive been looking into these for quite some time now. It was just killing me to figure out a way to get new tires and a set of track wheels. After figuring out charges for mounting and balancing, i just finally realized that tirerack does that for free. So then i come across the deal with the BF's that were only 60 bucks, and i couldnt pass it up.

Nice choice.
Those are the same rims (though they're 16") I'm using for my winter treads.
I'm about ready to pull off an impulse buy too,
and get some 215/45/16 Falken Azenis to mount on them for AutoCross duty.

Those are nice! They look to me like the 15" Focus style that's kinda similar? I really like those stock ones though, so a lighter version in black sounds cool.

I'm almost exclusively an impulse buyer for bigger things... I deliberate and fret over almost every purchase I ever consider, then one day I just snap and go on a whirling dervish of buying stuff all at once. I'm sure it's not a good strategy but it works for me! I've noticed it happens a lot more now that I have a Focus to spoil... god I better avoid having kids!
