Question Looking for Stock 17" Rims

Howdy all,

just got my '03 Coupe V6 last year and it came with the, ungh, stock 16" rims.

Wondering if & where I might have some luck coming across a set of used (but not damaged) 17" rims.

With everybody pimping their rides with the crazy aftermarket rims, one wonders what happens to all the stock wheels.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Peace.

fixrim.com has a lot of reconditioned wheels that are guranteed and relatively cheap. Also, check out eBay, there's a lot of auctions you can get wheels and tires for about the price of just tires.

You could always try salvage yards, they probably aren't going to give you the best wheels... but you never know!

hey,

pretty cool website, didn't know about it.

Unfortunately they only have one or two of most rims, but I'll definitely keep checking them out.

Will also check out eBay Motors too, hadn't thought of that.

Cheers.

check the "for sale" and try and post in the "wanted to buy" section of this forum. i remember seeing stock 6spd rims on there lately.

worse comes to worst, hang around long enough because i always hear about someone selling their stockies at some point or another.

Thanks for the info guys.

Another question - where can I get replacement OEM lug nuts, preferably cheap? Mine are getting rusty from the winter wear :|

I'm assume they're ridiculously expensive via a dealer.

well.. I would love to help you because I have 3 of the 17" stock rims, if you live around Los Angeles area I could have sell it to you for real real cheap... (I ran over a pothole last year and broked one of the rim, so I just went ahead and bought a different looking one for myself)
