    Selling the 17s I got for my car, thought I'd like them but like how the 15s ride. They have maybe 50 miles on the wheels and tires. I'm wanting $800 for everything including lugs. The tires are Federal SS595's. The sizes are 245/45 front and 275/40 rear. The bs is 4.5 for the 17x8 and 5.5 for the 9.5. IMG_20180225_124609_697.jpg

    Hi,
    And good luck with the sale, price seems reasonable , I was thinking about bigger rims, however, why do you find the 15 inch rims and tires better, as I want to learn , why not to change.
    Thanks

    The car rides stiffer to me with the 17s. The 15s have a better ride on my car. But a lot of my problem could be the crappy roads around here.

    Hi,
    I do not think the roads could be worse then the roads here in NY, i have seen sections with so many pot holes , that there was no more room to pull over and repair the flat tire!!

    I’m interested in the wheels and tires if you still have them. Sent a pm but not sure if it went through, thanks! Dave
