    How about two cases? Seriously--I got my kit, and I know that I may be able to fumble my way through the installation. However, if there's someone in the area who has successfully done this and would be willing to do mine for some minor compensation, drop me a PM. I'm in Rosemount (east of...

A few years ago, his car was stolen and these wheels weren't on it at the time, so he had them left over. He kept them for a while, hoping he could use them sometime in the...
