when i got my new rims, i wanted to keep my stockers for a while until i knew everything was working out ok; well, everythings fine, and now i have 4 rims and tires taking up mucho space in the garage.

the rims are 16" teardrops in pretty damn good shape (if i dont say so myself ;) )

the tires are goodyears wrangler rt/s with about 6,000 miles on them - theyre in pristine condition.

for some reason, im having trouble just putting them up for sale. theyre probably never going to touch my truck again, but, "what if?" (and im sure that ill never have to worry about "what if?")

(my mind set right now is: im young, im not gonna use em, at least for a long time, and by that time (which would be more opportune because i will have graduated college and have a career), i could just buy another set of wheels and tires; while, for now, the money could do some wonderful things.)

so what do you guys think? sell em? or keep em, just in case?

(just in case anyones wondering, i would sell the tires on the rims, or i would split them ONLY if i could find a buyer for the tires first, cuz i know i could unload the rims alone in a few days...and please dont post here that you want dibs on them; if i decide to sell them, ill start a new thread then (except if youre doug moore since we had a deal a long time ago that fell through.))

thanks guys (and girls) and sorry this is so long and boring.

Well tbomb sound's like you've already convinced yourself, so sell'em and "do some wonderful things" :)

I held on to mine for a while too, but I then realized I would never put them back on unless I sold it and... I"M NOT SELLING IT! But anyway, use your own judgement and if you post them here they will sell fast!

Ive had mine for sell since I registered. I guess I'm asking too much, but I would take a reasonable offer. Oh well, theres always Ebay.
