So my sister comes home on thursday and tells me there's an indicator light flashing on my car's dashboard HUD. I go out and just assume that it's the gass gauge indicator because my fuel was in the redzone, anyhow I fill the beast up a bit and the stupid light doesn't go away.

So I look through the handbook and I find out the indicator is actually for flat tires/ low tire pressure. Of course I check up and down and the tires seem fine and the pressure is good so I wonder if I just have a faulty indicator light and go to get my car checked out.

BOTH OF MY FRONT GODDAMN RIMS ARE FUCKED ON THE INSIDE! Seriously, after the dude at the shop popped those tires off my rims looked exactly like the T1000 did after Arnold blew him in half with the grenade launcher.

So basically I have to pay about $1100 CAD to get these things replaced and fixed now.

FUCKKKKKKK

meh, a lot of that is just from our retarded taxes over here in Canada.

here we go, actual figures from my bill of sale

Both front wheels (rims + mounts and balance) $748.00
installation labour $ 79.00
Total: $ 827.00
+
Wheel alignment $ 129.95

Subtotal $ 957.85
H.S.T. 13% $ 124.52
Total $ 1082.37

So the actual price for the stock mini stuff wasn't too bad, I paid $748 for the both of them from my licensed dealer. Then take into account the USD is still around 5 cents more than ours and factor that out of my $748.00 price for those tires and you're looking at around almost $700. So yea, I'm paying maybe 100 bucks more out of pocket just for the mini name. Which is alright to me.

well from a dealership standpoint and if you are talking factory rims, yes, they are always ridiculous. there is no question. but you could get aftermarket rims for a lot cheaper from places like pepboys and shit. but yeah, hind sight is 20/20.

2 things to remember. 1) we live in Canada, a lot of shit is more expensive over here. 2) what the fuck is a pap boy's?
