    Can't find rims

    Alright heres my dilemma: I'm looking for wheels that would be a direct replacement for my stock 16x8 TA wheels. Im driving myself crazy trying to search for wheels, and cant really find anything. Anybody have any recomendations on where I should look or know of any rims off hand that are the same size? I would like black rims with a lip, but would also be happy with polished as well.

    If you have not viewed it yet, this sticky might be a good place to get some ideas: Aftermarket rims? Post pics here!

    Yeah, I couldnt view half of the pics on my computer but I did look through there as well as on ls1tech. Would this wheel fit? http://badabingwheelsandtires.com/3649.html

    JMO but if your going to spend the money to upgrade wheels why not go with something bigger like 17 or 18" ?
    I went from 16's to 18's and I am very happy with the looks and performance. In fact I will probably be selling the current 18's as I'm getting something else.
    As you have probably noticed there is quite a few more choices if you go the larger route.

    I know theres more. I just bought new tires last summer for my car, so I not to excited about purchasing new tires as well. With the looks of it though, thats what I may have to do, I was just really hoping I could find something that would be a direct replacement so I didnt have to spend the extra money on tires.

    I kind of figured that was the case.
    My thoughts are that if you did happen to purchase some 16's that eventually you would regret not going bigger, and would end up spending more money again.

    Wait(and save up more money) until your current tires are about due to be replaced, then buy at least a set of 17 x 9s.
