Replace painted wheels with???

We purchase an "X" in late December to get the 2010 tax deduction. Yes, the 6000gvw allows for business deduction; maybe that's why the GC's weigh so much. We tried to buy a Limited but couldn't find one that was white with an interior that wasn't black. We got everything we wanted except polished wheels. 20" wheels are out with all the pot holes we have, so we have looked at LA Wheel Chrome exchange, US wheel Winter Chrome wheel exchange and buying stock polished wheels and selling the stock painted 18". Comments on how to sell the stock wheels are appreciated. Any advise from those who have replaced the 18" painted would be appreciated. We will only buy wheels with the stock dimensions. Thanks for your help.

Re: Replace painted wheels with???

stock wheels and tires arent worth that much; IMO craigslist is a good place/ its a real pain to ship them but it can be done/


for new wheels you didnt say what you are looking for/

here is one with the details it is very close to oem dimensions/


here is a machined 5 spoke in silver ???????

American Racing Estrella Machined wheels
18x8.0 PCD 5x127 (5x5) ET30, 5.7"BS $196.32 each

rob..Thanks for the options on those wheels.they are a possibility. I am looking for something pollished or chrome with dimensions very close to stock so I can re use the tires.That's why I'd like feed back on LA wheel chrome exchange and US wheel Winter Chrome exchange. I suspect you are right about selling the stock 18" wheels, could be a hassle but I was thinking $300 for the set buyer pays freight.

FYI, discount parts dealers sell the polished 18 oem wheels for 170 each, shipping is near 100 per set.

Winetoo, I will be selling my polished 18s w/ tires (currently 6,500-miles) in the next few weeks.

PM me and we can discuss, you need a few more posts before you can PM though.
