Earlier in the week, I went to Mississauga to pick up a set of steel wheels with winter tires. I thought if I narrowed my search to 16" I could save some cash... brought them home, tried them on and bam, caliper collision. Considered doing some clearance a la 18" steelies but much more would have needed to come off.
Put them back on kijiji for $100 more than what I paid, and they sold in a day.
Just got back from picking up some A4 17" wheels (at the same exit in Mississauga) with winter tires for the same price I sold the 16s for!

Could use some spacers...

Dinghus said we could talk about a better price when I got there (I knew what that meant), and he said he'd take $30 less if I didn't take the caps, because he had someone ready to buy them for $30. So I took the caps and called it a day. Didn't bother to check them out... two of them have zero mounting tabs left, so I'm going to have to glue them on or something. Maybe two sided tape would be better. I think everyone has a conscience, but some people just prefer the 30 pieces of silver.
