    Read the first part about having a baby and decide if you should save the money.

    Do a sound system, can't see your rims as you cruise the mean streets, only the cold glares of the haters.

    I'd go with Hooked on Phonics, but that's me... :D

    I kid, I kid... Honestly, I would just save the money. Rugrats are damned expensive when they first come along... If you are deadset on getting something though, I would go with the rims, becasue you won't be blasting any decent tunes with a baby in tow.

    If you get the rims, the haters will see them and glare... if you get the system the haters will hear it and glare... or you could save the moneys for the kid. Diapers are expensive.

    What I was thinking, once you get that hospital bill I am sure you will regret buying rims or a sound system!

    He's in Canada--his taxes pay for the hospital bill (don't kid yourselves health care isn't free, you just pay through the nose a different way).

    Rims or stereo? Easy.








    Diapers...:eek:

    Good luck with the little one!

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    System; you can always buy rims.

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    Save the money. If not, you'll enjoy the system more often than the rims. Low profile tires are for racing. They ride rough, and are the rims are easily smashed by pot holes.
    A new head unit and speakers with an underseat sub will improve the sound without breaking the bank.
