Does anyone know of wheels similar to these that aren't an arm and a leg? These guys are by Forgeline are $1400, EACH! Yeah..... I'm ditching my stock 17's and getting new wheels this weekend. Found a couple of nice AMG sets on CL near me for $1200 or so I may go with. I like spoke wheels with a lip. It makes the rears look wicked.

$750 off of CL with new tires. Cheap *** tires, but they'll work for a year. Not perfect, but pretty damn nice. I'll get pic of em on the car tomorrow.

Wheel are on the car but the tires are the wrong size. I don't think they're balanced either. The car rides like doo doo. Look cool though. New tires are going on today.

Nice, enjoy!

I've been hunting for wheels for my car for over a year and i had to drive 1k miles roundtrip to get them (Had to make sure they're in good condition). But i'm a happy camper now!
