New wheel & tire packages for under $500?

Has anyone seen this?

http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...0331!419467873



It says there you can get 16" wheels with tires for $449 or 17" wheels with tires for $499. That seems like a great deal unless there's something I'm missing. I'm sure they're shitty tires though.

Not to mention crappy wheels probably, but for $500 who really cares?

Usually like Continentals or something they give you... if that 16" package is really only $449 thats damn good.

It doesn't specify the offset though. Also, shouldn't the tire size for the 16's on our cars be 205/45/16?

For the NX2K, I run 205/40/16. This is within a couple of milimeters of the overall diameter of the stock 195/55/14.

It's amazing how many words rhyme with "kool":

Anyone gonna order anything? Thats damn cheap. Even if you need new expensive tires you can almost just get that package and cost the same.

I rather spend more money on better looking wheels. But those arent that bad. Im feelin those Enkei mm2's though, I think those would look pimp on the b14. Not many people have mesh wheels. $162 per wheel, wonder how much they weigh.

With michigan roads I'm sure those wheels will be bent up in a week. Not to mention the crap ass tire you get with them. My friend bought a package similar to that and it came with 205-50-16 Falken Ziex.
