Seeking opinions on wheel purchase plan

May be dumb to post this to some, but i can never sleep, so here goes nuffin lol.

So, i want a new set of wheels, and its a part of a much bigger planned "mod weekend" where from a year from now i plan to have the entire car completely transformed, but im not sure how to go about the wheel aspect. Lets put you in my shoes. As far as expendable wheel money goes, if i save up for an entire year from now i can afford them. Should i:
A). Buy them one at a time, to keep me on track, and where it wont feel like such a huge amount of money going to one mod (lol)
B). Try to save up the entire sum and risk getting distracted with a different, less droolworthy mod.
Basically, which do you personally feel is smarter.
This may be confusing but i dont make alot and the set im looking at is a good 4 grand which is quite the investment for someone like me haha, so its not like im savin up for some damn rota's lmao. Just seeking out thoughts and opinions. Hope i make sense? lol.

It sounds like you're too poor to mod a car

Just don't.

Wtf do you mean buy them one at a time? So you're going to have just 1 odd rim sitting in your garage until you get a 2nd one at a later time? That's just... I don't even know what to say...

lolololololol figured these would be the answers. Just felt like posting in OT and seeing what you all had to say about it lolol. No 2JZ comment V8 5? And man if saving that much coin is that easy why doesnt everyone have baller ass cars? lol, just saying, I have many other financial responsibilities to where this is what im allocating to myself to save toward wheels, not that its a all-i-can-afford type deal. It isnt a huge priority, which is why i gave it a long term plan. I dont need them next month.

This. Something is seriously wrong with this picture. If you can't afford to purchase these wheels, don't. Just because you can acquire enough money over a period of time does not mean you can afford them. You can't afford them. Deal with it and buy some nice reps.
