    Jeez, just about anywhere these days. Summit Racing even sells them. Try looking through the HAMB vendors - someone on here makes wheels and gets good reviews.

    I thought there was a run on these seeing this thread. I need to get a set out I have had for three years.

    The tire store you deal with on a regular basis may not have them out on display but they can get them or may have a set in the back room. You might even be able to cut a deal on a set of those "old oblsolete wheels" out of the back room.

    I'd check with the alliance vendors first though.
    I think the tire store I deal with probably orders the wheels from one or another of the alliance vendors as I have seen their catalogs in the catalog rack.

    No one offers chrome reverse. You are forced to buy 'smoothies'.

    Summit carries Wheel Vintiques . They are called style OE-64. Those are the chrome steelies, not smoothies.

    The usually stock the normal sizes in ford, and chevy patterns.

    Thanks, just wish I could find someplace in the Phoenix area that has some local. Have not had any luck hitting a couple tire stores.

    Wheelkid at Rally America (www.rallyamerica.com) is the contact. He will make pretty much whatever you need and prices are very competitive.

    You don't need to find something "close" in a catalog, call Wheelkid and just order them. Custom built, competitive prices, quick turn-around and delivered to your door.

    What more can you ask!

    Oh...and they give a HAMB Alliance member discount.

    Do it the easy way...give 'em a call!

    He is over $35 more per wheel than Summit for a chrome OEM wheel.

    I understand that. But, even with the discount still a bit more. Still hoping someone with jump out with a used set they are looking to get rid of.

    Hey man, I don't think you had bad intentions, but trolling for used wheels this way is in bad taste. If you're looking for used wheels, start a Wanted ad in the classifieds. If you're looking for a vendor, you got several to choose from, but I always try to do business with any company giving a Hamb Alliance discount.

    And frankly, I would rather support an American small business and get a quality product than do business with a faceless corporation that sells cheap Chinese shit. If you want to be a cheapass, spend 50 bucks on the Alliance and get the discounts.

    I have bought two sets of wheels from Gary and Jimmy McLean (aka wheelkid) at Rally America and am very happy with them. I'd rather they have my business than Summit even if it costs me more. Your priorities may be different than mine.

    Well, First off I wasn't "Trolling". I asked about where to find certain wheels and other users responded and told me some places. Other users even Pm'd me and warned me about certain places. I checked out the places that were recommended to me.

    Second, I did start a post in the wanted section of the classifieds, I simply stated in this thread that I would still like to take a decent set of used rims off someones hands than to buy new (although I will buy new if I cannot find a decent set of used, which is why I started the thread to begin with). Every dollar saved comes in handy elsewhere.....

    Third, I would buy from an Alliance Vendor no problem but when they are $150 more expensive, not including shipping, it does not make much sense to me. Especially when I have had my hours cut at work and am on a more limited budget than I would like to have.

    And last, The wheels I am looking at with Summit are Wheel Vintiques, not some Faceless Chinese Crap.....

    Thanks for your opinion though......
