    Help with new wheels

    I'm finally about to make a move from stock wheels to some aftermarket ones.
    I'm not looking to spend 2k on wheels but I'm pretty much open to any suggestions. Does anyone have any good places they'd recommend me checking out? Any help is greatly appriciated.

    The tirerack website has a decent selection, also check this site's for sale section. Ebay would be a place to look as well for a good cheap price.

    17, 18, 19 ?

    No lip, small lip, big lip?

    Chrome, black chrome, silver, black, gun metal?

    What style/finish do you like, or dislike ?

    Not really considering shipping was $150 of that, the locking lugs were $40, and I got half price on the mounting and balancing so $10 there. Less than a thousand for rims AND tires before shipping. Pretty good I think.

    Sorry, for the bad quality of the pic. Had to use my cell.
