Suggestion on a place to look for new wheels

Hi fellas. I was wondering where you guys go shopping for wheels online?

The only resource I have is tirerack.com but I'd like to know if you brothers got some other favorite suggestions to look?

I picked these out from tirerack, tell me what you guys think, I'd love more resouces to check out though. Thanks!

For used wheels- craigslist, E-bay
For new wheels just Google search wheels until you find the ones you want and then google the name of the wheels until you find the best price.

Re: Suggestion on a place to look for new wheels

I found a set I think I will go with. Let me know what you guys think:

I'm looking to get tires also. I'm not sure which one of these to go with. I don't live around the best streets so I would like something that can handle a little beating but not look thick and stupid. What do you guys think would be a good option? I dont know what any of this stuff means.

If you really like the wheels you linked I would just get type sh wheels... pretty much the same thing.

stock size should be fine. the numbers you mentioned are tire sizes. plus zero would be stock 16" size. plus one would be for a 17" wheel and so on
