I would agree in regard to value.  They are excellent for
snow tires since they are so closed.  That won't help you
much in Mesa, but not too far you they may come handy,
though I would be surprised to find many V8's there.
Btw Ken, I was just in your general neighborhood on
Saturday (though in my sister's Camry) on the way to Canyon
and then Saguaro Lake.  What absolutely beautiful landscape
out there, specifically from Brown Rd up over Usary Pass.
I lived in the high desert in California for many years and
I can't remember ever seeing anything like it.

Experience of all kinds is easily garnered with these cars.  Most of it's good!  Common Audi-ownership sense prohibits me from stating out loud the reassuring answer you're looking for re: getting on top, but I will say, have faith -- it's not always big money and time.  Fun and pride will start working its way in there!

For the wheels, assuming they're the flat-faced ones with 5 very short spokes, not the BBS mesh type, the market is minimal.  Save 'em for all that Mesa snow you get.  The BBSers are 15" also, but worth a bit more, especially if the polished lips aren't too corroded.  What size tires?  215/60-15?  There's usually a bit of a demand for 4 equally-good tires..
