The K.I.S.S. principle works best every time..................four new jackstands and a floorjack. You'll have enough money left for a 70" HDTV to occupy yourself whilst waiting for the powder coated wheels to return.

............and 4 jackstands and 1 low profile jack all for the price of less than the cost of a wheel and tire.
