new wheels

So the other day I went in for a rotate and balance and the tech showed me that one of my wheels is bent. Not a major problem yet but it would probably explain my slight vibration at freeway speeds. Anyway, I am looking for suggestions for new wheels. I would like to stick with 17's, as my tires are only 8 months old. The salesman showed me a v-tec raptor, black with mirror machined finish that i kinda like, but I would like some other suggestions, and pics if you have them. Thanks!

Re: new wheels

Well here is a rough idea of how the Vtec raptors in gloss black mirror finish would look like.Couldn't find any on vehicle pics so had to go with just a regular pic found online and a random steel blue jeep.I personally don't like it and from the signature pic I think the wheels you have look better.Maybe if all the other wheels are in good shape you could just replace that bent rim? As far as other suggestions I think a polished wheel would look great with the steel blue.
