Default RE: Wheel Replacement

Check out the local Salvage Yards. I was able to pick up a set of 4 nearly new 15x7 - 4.75 x 5 alloys for $25 each.

You need to examineany used rimveryclosely for cracks and pits... and like all used parts, if you get a bad feeling about 'em - don't buy. I wouldn't buy any rims off a vehicle that had been damaged anywhere near the wheel wells,or was burnedsince the likelyhood that they could be warped / bent goes up. This particular vehicle had just been towed into the yard, and it was just before closing, so the owner was anxious to make some money.

It helps to be patient, and not just buy the first set you find. I looked at several sets before I came across these. They were essentially perfect, just a bit dusty. A little bit of legwork and elbow grease saved me at least $400.
Good luck!
