    Changing OEM 15in rims to SR 16in rims questions

    Hey everyone, I have the convenience package 15in rims but like the look of the SR 16in rims. After reading over a few posts I wanted to ask for more clarification with if I can swap my rims with the OEM SR 16in rims and not need to change anything? Or because they have a different offset (if I am reading correctly 50 offset for 15in and 55 for 16in) do I need to do anything different? Also is there a problem with swapping back and forth between the 15 and 16 each season?

    I am looking at a used set of SR 16in rims online, and would make those my summer rims, and then have my 15in OEM rims with my winter tires. I currently have steelies for the winter tires but I like the look of the SR rims, and so if I get those I will have 3 sets of rims, and thought I would get rid of the plain black ones.

    Also, what is a good price for SR 16in rims. I am talking to someone now and they are asking $160 which seems very good. I have never bought used rims before and don't know what I should be looking for tho. It sounds like a good deal, but they also have several other cars rims for sale so they are likely not the original owner. Maybe a mechanic or junk yard, I am not sure. All 4 rims look pretty good to me in the pictures they have provided. Any help and insight is appreciated.

    I have included the image links that were provided to me, couldn't figure out how to upload them since I only had the web image.

    160 for a set of 4 round rims with any sort of tire is a pretty good deal, your looking to make sure the rim hasn't hit a pothole and is bent, you can usually see and by running your hand around them obvious damage...if you don't notice anything there probably wont be a problem. they look OK to me

    9,999 purchase price + tax..no additional 1600$ because it was a 2015 purchased in 2016
    so receipt says $8,399....+1600 .... so they look good i guess...for a brand new car!

    Can you do that with the tire on? Like just the edge of where the rim and tire are?

    I think the tires are bald and would be changing the tires once I start using the rims. But I might not use them for a while as my current summer tires are still good, but are a different size so I can't just change the tire over and also can't justify getting 2 sets of summers. But i hadn't seen many full sets of the SR rims in my searches, and at this price as well. So I didn't want to pass it up, will leave it in the garage until the time comes.

    I've decided against getting them as it ended up being too far away and might be a few years before I need new tires. If anyone is interested I posted the ad for them in the web finds/for sale section.
