Upgrade: New (used) shoes for our Suzuki

Alloy wheels for Suzuki SX4 - Subcompact CultureThe 2010 Suzuki SX4s do not come standard with alloy wheels like the 2007–2009 models. However, I stumbled upon a set of mint 2007 SX4 alloy five-spokes on, and the seller (who is building a sweet SX4 rally car—pictures of that later) just happened to be in Portland. So for $250, I was able to pick up a set of alloy wheels with the TPMS sensors, plus the the tires still have some tread left on them. Score.

These will be the car's summer wheels, and we'll eventually swap over the brand-new rubber from the steel wheels onto these wheels. However, we'll also be getting a set of 16" snow tires in the very near future.

Yes, the do bolt up, but the offset is totally different (e.g. they'll stick out farther from the car), which isn't what I was going for.
