Default As winter moves close......

As STL winter moves close, all our montes here on rims are going to dissapear, as well as mine. Since mine came with rims, I have no offset of factory tires to switch to. So for all my STL folk, where would be a good place to one.

Find a factory size rim, then buy new tires

OR

Find a good deal on the factory size rims+ tire package? Any help? ;/ Im kinda new to this lol.

Hop on ebay or craigslist, there's a chance you will find someone selling their ugly stockers for cheap.

X2.. check craigslist. Almost always a set of impala/grand prix/monte carlo/etc. wheels in my area at least.

I checked around STL craigslist and found these from an 02, not sure what year your Monte is: link==> 02 Monte Carlo Tires and Wheels

02 mont carlo wheels Call Mike @ 314 681 3171 or Dan @ 308 458 7639

It might be worth a shot to call and see if they're still available and take a look at them in person. Super cheap for all four depending on condition.

Or these: ===> http://stlouis.craigslist.org/pts/3238459841.html

Watch craigslist for people parting out cars like the Grand prix, Bonneville, impala or monte carlo. You may get lucky and find a set with decent tires. If you do have to run the rims on your car now just keep them cleaned up good and wax them on a regular basis.
