Wheels were here

Totally forgot! I bought a set of stock S2000 wheels on Craigslist a while ago. They were in a different state, and the seller kindly agreed to ship.

I know, I know, "avoid shipping scams." But the guy actually knew names of a couple folks I autocrossed with, so it was not appearing very risky.

Today I found a tag on my door saying the FedEx guy missed me. So I'll have to wait a whole extra day to find out what condition they're in. They were supposed to be scratched up a bit, and that's fine by me. I don't need pristine wheels to hit cones. As long as they're round and can be balanced, it's all good.

Next problem is, where the heck will I store them? With the Miata daisies/Azenis taking up space in the storage shed on the balcony, I just might have to store these guys in their boxes out on the balcony for a while, until the Miata sells.

Yes, December seems to be a tough month to sell a convertible :)
