Default Yay or Nay? (3 valve rims)

Really crude photo shop, and I couldn't find a clean side shot of a convertible.

But I'm about to pull the trigger on the 19 inch premium 10-11 wheels for my Tungsten grey Convertible:

*so like this, but with a black top, spent 10 second making it*



*The car and current rims, 17 inch bullits*

New place costs a LOT more money, won't be spending much until after I'm moved and settled. Nothing wrong with my current setup, tires are just a bit on the old side.

I am also enticed by the current C/S wheels:



I'll probably hold out till my tires are toast and get either the premium or C/S Wheels.

I'm not going to be money poor, I will just have less disposable income. Modifying my car = Disposable Income money, not Rent money.

I like both choices. I think either would be good. Just get whichever one is the better deal.

I'm going to sit it out until my tires are toast, and then pickup whichever one I find first for a decent price.

That's probably the best strategy. I considered searching for 18s or 19s for the GTO but the tires on it have so much life I cannot justify it.

Mine are original tires, so they are getting up their in age (car is an 06), but I don't exactly take 90* turns doing 75mph, and they are balanced, have plenty of tread, etc... I figure if I curb/bend a rim, or blow a tire, I'll replace the lot, otherwise I'll put winter rubber on them next fall and buy a new set of summer rims cheaply over winter.

I just never want "house" to eat up more of my income then necessary unless I have kids (not happening anytime soon). Then I might care about school district, the 'hood, and other factors. I own a house and the great perk is garage (albiet a crappy one) and no one collect rent from me monthly (although the every 6 month tax bill I consider "land rent").
