    Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)

    "This refers to a part that is made by the same manufacturer as the genuine part you would receive from you local automotive dealer"

    I was thinking this was going to be about the people that sleep in cars.


    What kind of car do you have?

    nomada's got it.
    they've got deals on rims and tires with free shipping starting at like $699.

    I just picked up some 16"s with hardly used Sumitomos for 5 bills.

    so does this mean you finally bought a car or are you freshing up your old ride?

    i'm looking to get new wheels too. i've been combing eBay and the rest of the web to find some 17" or 18" under $600 for the benzo.

    i need to learn more about all this.

    Nomada - nice site, thanks. are those prices for only one rim? are wider tires worse in the snow and rain? my rear wheel drive vehicle is a pain in incliment weather. i want the wider tires but i'm afraid it will make the situation worse.

    Ube...yes the prices are for one rim. there are some cheaper wheels on there...keep clicking through them. Pick up a car magazine like sport compact cars or something along those lines...there are tons of ads in there with some killer wheel and tire package deals.

    someone told me wider tires are typically worse in inclimate weather. I don't know why or have any proof. I just know my restored muscle car didn't get around at all when it snowed.

    wider tires on a car is not a good thing to have in the snow especially on lighter automobiles.wide tires act as skis on top of the snow. even all-wheel-drive and heavy cars are not immune to this ski effect

    16's? are you a fag? do you have a vagina? c'monnnnnnn stevie, real men dont push anything less than 18's.... :D

    i havent gotten it yet, but im just waiting on the dealer to find one.
    im either going with an 01 jetta wolfsburg, or an '00 jetta gls, whichever he finds first. why not an '01 gls you ask? cause if its not a wolf (which they didnt make in 00) then its not worth the extra 2k its gonna cost to get an 01. and to be honest, its not worth the 2k either way, but fuck it, soemtimes you gotta pay for a name, naw'mean?
    with any luck, i'll have it in the next two weeks.

    yeah, im up on tiretrack. theres also another site that i'll link later, that has some real good deals on wheel/tire combos. decent 18's with tires for about a G.

    ubejinxed,
    as someone said, a wider tire is going to sit ontop of the snow, where as a slimmer tire will cut through it better.

    steve, you've got a gti, yes?
    if you've got a picture, feel free to click that little 'email' button below this an send me a copy, id like to check it.

    7pm on a friday night and im still in the office.
