First post in the Southeast! Woot!

My MCS came with the 17" silver Tentacle wheels and the dealer wouldn't trade with me because the wheels are listed on the sticker and that would cause a hassle for them. I really want the 17" silver Cosmos wheels. Is there anyone in the Atlanta area willing to trade with me? Strait up wheel and tire trade as long as your tires have around 2000 miles (or less) on them, and are standard runflats that came with your wheels. Mine have ~500 miles currently. The dealer says you'll have to stop by and have your TPMS sensors reprogrammed to your car, but it's a quick job.

So, anyone interested?

You won't have to go to the dealer to do that inflate . Change the wheels, get in close door switch ignition on car status, tyre pressure monitoring select reset (Wording may be wrong I think it is recalibrate) wait a bit start engine wait a bit drive off. You then get a % indicator keep driving till Done. Easy.

I hope it's that easy. Thanks!

Thanks out to jeremybingham for the useful tip. That will be handy for me.

The cosmos wheels really look more traditional so I get why fatherfork wants to trade. They remind me of the minilite wheel used on vintage minis. It is all a matter of individual taste though so there's bound to be somebody who wants to do the trade.

Personally I would have preferred the 16" Heli-Spoke for an even more vintage look. Unfortunately, they aren't offered in Canada. For some reason we always get fewer choices than any other Country. Anybody in Washington State that has a set in their basement after upgrading?
