taking notes on the road


My car needs new tires. Why not track down some blingtastic spinning rims? I like the idea of extraneous moving parts on my car.

Turns out they don't make these kind of rims yet for a VW Jetta. Mostly for luxury cars and American cars. Here's my car's wheel specs if I want to track them down: 5 bolt holes by 100 millimeters across
15-18 inch wheel.

The guy at the tire shop works to transform my curiosity for spinning rims into the sale of some more staid bronze rims. When I realize that this vanity excursion will cost $1000 extra dollars ("a deal"), I balk. But they make it seem so reasonable!

I've got a 98 Jetta GT with the stock alloy wheels. I like my VW but I would not waste money on new rims if I didn't need it. Just get the tires.

Besides the way gas prices are going, even though they are dropping (I am in CT), my next car will be a honda hybrid.
