New sports rim and foodie galore

My 2 year old Iswara was calling out to me.......buy me 2 pairs of new slippers!!!! And I gave in. Last Monday, I took the opportunity to visit the tyre shop adjacent to my house, only to do some alignment and balancing on my car tyres (they're original ones btw). As I was wondering around the shop, just glancing thru the array of sports rims sold there, this particular black red 15"one was the one standing out. And so, I called the owner over just to check out the price, not knowing that I was jinxed into buying one. He calculated and calculated and alas gave me a price. RM1,100-00 plus 4 new Dunlop tyres 195/60 for comfort. The price includes balancing and alignment. Without even thinking twice, I said "Sitou!!! Kasi tukar sama dia!!" And lo and behold, my gorgeous sports rim. The black colour rims compliments my black car body. And since its black, I would be able to save time by not washing them often....hehehehe.

For me, to have nice sports rims or not to have them are the same.
The 4 slippers will still do their work. They still can bring me here and there.

Caffery said...

Nice sports rim! It might fit well with mine too, mine is red (not purple).

Yaya, black one don't need to wash often. =P

Calvin Soo KJ said...

jo, for men sports rims is like your lv or coach bag. and mine costs so much cheaper than an LV. :) well, you are kinda wrong now to ensure you have good tyres....and im not talking about rims. good tyres (mostly expensive ones) will ensure that your drive is smoother and safer. so its good to always check the wear and tear of your car tyres every 7,000km, just for realignment and balancing.

caffery, i reckon your car is red as well...hehehehe.
