Heres what i got on the table. Lets hear some opinions on what i should do ...

Getting 2100 back in tax returns...

Option 1 : 4 new RE-11s (1360) + rear camber arms (200) + mount balance alignment ( 250), roughly 1800-1900 ballpark.

Option 2: Get black Avante Garde m310 with hankook ventus, wheel n tire package (2100) + rear camber arms (200) + alignment (100), roughly 2300-2400 ballpark.

I have a black Z with shaved rear hamburger, black pearl front hamburger and blacked out headlights done by 180 custom. I can go for the blackout look with black m310s or essentially get "free" RE-11s with mount balance and camber arms included.

I love my 19'' rays...so im at a crossroad here. Not to mention I have color matched door handles for the all black look.

hmm...

Dear Marc,

Get the Avant Garde wheels. I like the murdered out idea. Then, sell me your Rays and buy a Stillen splitter.

I'd get the nice tires on your already nice stock 19's. keep heavy cheap wheels for snow tire set. If you want variety get the stockers painted.

These q's been asked many times, thus the useless post.

I dont believe snow tires were listed as an option. Have a 2nd car. Thanks for that.

Modify option 1. I liked my RE11's but love my Michelin Pilot Super Sports much more. Similar cost.

Why rear camber arms? you want to wear out your rear tires quicker?

Option 2: keep your rays and if you want a new look sell the avante's and you'll have at least some $ towards the new direction if you choose to do so down the road?
