But you've been able to sell them all and re-coop $$$...

Oh shit. I guess he figured it was bulletproof. LOL

Counting the GM stockers wheels and tires and the Savini wheels and tires and my new Forgeline wheels and tires and deducting the selling prices I got for the Savinis and GMs I'm still over 10k

That's fair. It wasn't the weight necessrily but the lack of traction.
