    Good place to buy wheels?

    I'm thinking of buying Konig Five-0's for my car, they look quite "Italian".



    Anyone have any recommendations on cheap wheel shops? online or off?

    I don't know you'll have to call Customs or talk to someone at The Tire Rack they may know..I think it's 3 % but Don't quote me on that

    Ari, I was at a tire shop today that had a used set of Ferrari replica rims. They looked to be in good condition. They were 16". I am going back tomorrow to see what prices he came up with for me. I can find out what he wants for them if you want. They look exactly like the ones that were on the late 80's 308.

    I'm looking for 355 Styled wheels, 17" 7 1/2 width, 5x100(Standard Fiero) Lug pattern. I'll find a pic of a real one and post it below.

    There is almost no point in buying in the states..anything
    other than custom stuff can be bought here cheaper.
    Our CDN $$ is just sucking wind right now. You are looking
    at BOTH taxes and a brokerage fee and perhaps a duty
    of upto 5%. The brokerage fee sucks. Not in the past
    you might have just paid GST or perhaps niether but thanks
    to computers almost nothing comes in without the
    taxes now.

    I bought rims at a local tire store .. they could order in
    just about anything in catalogs.

    If you get a chance to go to the auto show on the 15th,
    you will more than likely find a whole wack of retailers....
