    I'll have to look into this if I need to do a bigger order. Gotta be someone over this way doing the same thing.

    Congrats! I figured with two on the first go that might be it for you. It'll be an interesting dynamic at your house :D

    Picked up a spare set of wheels. Three of the wheels have definitely been re-painted at some point. They are a bit darker grey and the finish is rougher which is making it so grime sticks to them more. These wheels are generally in better shape than mine though, so when the time comes, it should be cheaper to get these refinished than my current wheels. They didn't come with center caps, but I can do without two sets of those :)

    Front, the one wheel that has not been painted:

    That's why I decided to grab them, especially since I need to buy new tires for my current set anyway and these were a pretty good price IMO. I plan to keep this car for a long time, so it doesn't hurt to have a second set of wheels. My wife would disagree though...
