Default Tires & wheels

NOTE:
I am not picking on anyone.
I am not trying to start anything.
I'm just trying to wrap my head around this because I'm cheap, thrifty, too old or just not cool.
A person buys a brand new kazillion dollar PU. Then the next day that person turns around and spends a kazillion dollars on new wheels & tires.
I can completely understand if the new tires & wheels are needed for some special reason.
I've been checking TBH classified for a deal on some new/newer 17" tires for my PU before I go buy some retail. This is how I came up with my query.
Semper fi.
God bless!

There are places near Houston that resell the new factory take offs people are always getting rid of. A coworker of mine always runs them. They are a heck of a bargain.

I personally got past spending $$ on tires and wheels early on...probably around 20 years old. But, if someone wants too, I don't care. Some I like, most I don't, but I ain't buying 'em and i ain't driving 'em.

Most of the time I just laugh and shake my head.

Vehicles are sometimes a huge part of personal expression and have the ability to be customized in so many ways. Just like a home. But.. how many people like the thought of a cookie cutter home? Especially young men who are ready to get out there create their own piece of the world. Financially smart... not at all!

It's because normally when you buy that new high dollar 4x4 it comes with some cheap all seasons or some lower end all terrains that you can bet won't last very long.

Thanks Lungbustr.
Anyone know of a place in the Austin or Abilene areas that does this?
I couldn't afford to be cool when I was young. Now I don't care if I'm cool or not.
I'm still in the market for some 17" PU tires for my 2005 GMC.

What I thinks funny is all of these rusted out junkers worth about 2,000.00 and they have 5,000.00 in tires, wheels, and boom box.

To each his own. I sure dont run my finances that way, but I ain't mad at the folks who do. It keep the US economy rolling with their needless and bad decision making based spending.

99.99% of the 4x4 I see driving around look like they've never been off a paved road.
Never mind ya'll I'm just a grumpy old man. I get it but then again I don't.
RENT? wheels & tires????? That's even dumber than buying them.

I'm looking for some 12x50 spinners to go on my Yugo.

I just bought a 2014 F-150 4x4. It's got new, basic, all season tires on it. I'm gonna wear those suckers out.

Welcome to the GOF club. I trash my truck pretty good when I go hunting, so I don't think I'll ever be able to stomach spending $50K on something that I know is about to get South Texas pinstriped and covered with mud and bullet casings.

Buddy of mine in the Marine Corps sold his car by advertising it as "Free Car!... with purchase of car audio system." Man, that thing was a hoopty POS! But, the sound system was impressive. He got it sold pretty quickly.

I'm still trying to "wrap my head around" how someone can find this so difficult to understand. People spending their money on things they want and don't need. We all do it. I like Almond milk in my cereal.

Mine came with Firestone street tires on it. Good tires if you are staying on the pavement. Most, including mine, Have plastic wheel covers on them. Last one I had with plastic wheels drove me nuts when they started rattling. I take mine off road often.

Everyone blows money on something. I see people on here spending 10k a year on a deer lease. Now that’s insane to me!

I’d rather spend 2500 on some nice shiney 20x10 American Force Forged wheels myself!
