Dude, there's a junkyard here in Mass where every last Saturday of the month ANY rim/tire (except for alloys) is $5.00 Needless to say I've bought about $120 worth of 90% good tires mounted on decent (if not cosmetically) steel wheels over the past few years. Most of them were on the back of my Camaro for a week or two. My fuel economy dropped down to 7mpg and then I threw away a rim the remnance of a tire, hanging by the steel belts. :metal: How do you think Olds Superstockers ended up on a '68 Camaro? Look around, you may find a local place that does the same. Edited by Sixty8panther

Dude open up the local used-car classifieds. A guy offered to trade me a set of 100% mint condition chrome American racing 15" six spokes for my old POS Mazda demolition derby car.... I was only askig $100 for the car. There's good deals out there... if you buy your set throught a dealership you'll blow your brains out pricewise.
