Well, it seems any wheel that suits my taste (re:style/size/fitment) is not trendy enough to stocked anywhere and is custom order only. Some places are telling me 8 weeks, some double that. I'm inclined to believe the latter.
Since the car was so cheap, there is room to spend on wheels, but custom wheels arriving in the dead of winter is not a priority, so in the interim I am trying something a little different
Got a set of 16'' steelies, they are being prepped for fitment atm. I am going to run 175/60/16 tires...should produce an ''OEM'' look and at the same time fill up the wheel well a bit more. Tire choice is limited in this size to Dunlop winter and Goodyear all season. have not decided yet...the skinny winter tire would be very nice practically speaking, but being a guy I am a slave to visual input and I like the tread pattern better on the all seasons...
Will post pics when it comes together.
As an aside, check out these awesome tires, I really dig 'em! Skinny 19'' and 20''! Those crazy Germans Rock!
