Seriously? Why buy rims that are more expensive than the car?

And if I remember correctly, that 1991 Ford Escort probably rolls on 15's...Could you even get 18's in there?

My advice: Save the money on the rims and buy a SWEET body kit and high wing spoiler for it.

Dude! Just put a refidgerator shelf on the trunk. You know, from an industrial 'fridge? Looks hot. And [its] cheap.
I for one, am a huge fan of the teal green.

I don't know what's funnier, paying $3K for a '91 4-door Escort, or buying 18s for it!!

OR bragging about the tape deck!!!

Purely from a mathematical standpoint - If the 15's are sort of fitting in there, lowering the car will not give you the clearance for 17's or 18's.

For the record though - This is what I am proposing you do:

they are 14s dawg! 17s are probably it for you. 205/40. Those escorts were hitting in the day. I used to race my friend in his all of the time. I BARELY edged him in my pickup truck full of trash on the way to the dump.

Blue Book Suggested Retail Value
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail Value is representative of dealers' asking prices and is the starting point for negotiation between a consumer and a dealer. This Suggested Retail Value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. This value also takes into account the dealers' profit, costs for advertising, sales commissions and other costs of doing business. The final sale price will likely be less depending on the vehicle's actual condition, popularity, type of warranty offered and local market conditions.
Uhhh...........dayum you got ripped off.........
