    How should I get 5 35\" SSRs>>>>>

    Ok my wife just gave me my first 200 bucks to go tward getting all 5 SSRs. Please help me decide on how to make this work out and weighing all the Pros and Cons. Here are my two ideas.
    1) Everytime I get 200 bucks for tires buy one 35"SSR and put it in my garage. I should have all 5 tires in my garage by Xmas. So about one SSR per month.

    2) Everytime I get 200 Bucks for tires stash the cash in my garage, in a secrate spot my wife desn't know about so she can't 'recalime' the cash for bills and such. Then when I get anough to cover the cost for all 5 +shipping, buy them.

    So please vote for one and give your MOST valuable .02c as to why you chose that one.

    I am wanting to use the #1 method so I can sit and stair at them when in the garage, plus I woun't have to worry about the money getting 'sucked up' by something else.......
    I'm so confused[​IMG]

    I'd go for number one. That way you feel like you're accomplishing something [​IMG]

    Hey Steve,

    I've got it ! ! ! !...............Every time you get $200.00 you can buy one tire and have it shipped to ME[​IMG]. That way you don't have the money or the tires just sitting around[​IMG]. And when you have bought all five you can just forget that you did and start over with your first plan.[​IMG]

    If you don't like that idea you could probably just stick with what you wanted to do in the first place. Get a tire everytime you have enough cash since it would be hard for the wife to pay bills with the tires. That is as long as she doesn't owe me any money[​IMG].

    See Ya Bro,
    Keith

    If your household works like mine I'd definitely go with number 1...[​IMG]
    Like Lara said you can feel like you're accomplishing something a piece at a time...plus its hard to spend a tire.

    So bank robbery isn't an option then, well #1 I guess unless you can talk her into letting you get a small loan. Might be a better way to go in the long run, i'm sure the interest would'nt be that bad. At 11.5 % on a 12 mo. loan would be 93 $, at 200$ a mo. you'd pay off the tires a mo. before xmas but you'd have been driving on the new tires for 6mos.SHHHWIIINGGG!

    Buy them one at a time and stack them in her parking spot (unless she parks in the street obviously). That way you feel like you are getting where AND, more importantly, she may give you the rest sooner just to get them the hell out of her parking spot.

    That's because I'm the devil.

    I just spoke with my local Americas discount tire and they said they can order the SSR's and give me the road hazard on them!
    Have all 5 done at once and purchase the road hazard when
    you have the money.
    I will hold the cash 'til you are ready! :)

    Option 3...open a savings account everytime you get 200 bucks plop it in the savings account. You'll be earning interest on it while ya horde it and if ya don't tell the wifey she won't know [​IMG] She may even be happy, what with gas the way its going the interest might pay for a whole gallon of gas by the time you buy the tires [​IMG]
