I have 15" Toyota alloy wheel atm but i can upgrade em to 17" Enkei(not sure about the model, couldnt find the matching one on Enkei website) for $300 including installation.

I also get to keep my spare alloy, so i'll be just swapping 4 wheels and tires.

My tyres are different brand/models but in good condition(near new),.

2x 15" Dunlop Sports 300E (Rear, 205/65R15, alloys in decent condition, tyres in good condition, near new)

2x 15" Gemstone G3300 (Front, 205/65R15, alloys in decent condition, tyres in good condition, near new)

2x 17" Enkei tyres were 17" Federal Super Steel 595 (235/45R17) are in decent condition but other two(different brand/model) are worn.

I think he'll sell the 4x 17" Enkei wheel(+tyres) for ~$450-$500 out right. so basically i'm getting $150-$200 for my 4x 15" alloys.

Do you think its worth it?

If it's only $300, then why not I guess. If you like the wheels, then go for it. Not too much you can get out there for that much (without keeping a sharp eye out) so if it makes you feel good, then good then.

I don't get the part where you mention "so basically i'm getting $150-$200 for my 4x 15" alloys." though.

Yer maybe i'll try to drop it down to $280 lol, not sure if they'll look ok on drak green camry tho. And i thought they might be fake heavy ones, etc cos they weren't listed on Enkei website.

I just wasnt sure if that was the normal going price cos all my tyres are in good condition(near new), and my friend will probably buy those 17" for his Aurion ATX IF i dont buy em.

Also i heard something like putting larger wheel can actually effect your speedo a bit(making it slightly inaccurate), or was i just told bs? :)

Cool thanks for the info.

Its bit weird cos i can't seem to find that 17" Enkei wheel model at all :( googled 17" 9 spoke Enkei, etc and also checked 10 pages on 17" Enkei wheels on http://www.ebay.com/...&_skc=450&rt=nc on ebay.

Anyway i'm gonna buy the 17" wheels first thing monday but probably also buy 2 new 17" tyres since 2 of em are worn,

Can someone recommend me a decent 17" 235 tyres?

i have two options atm depending on price, buy 2 good tyres and use em for front, or buy 2 cheap tyres and use em for back, but replace the front ones in near future. I checked some reviews on net but too many mixed reviews.. http://www.productre...enza-re001.html
