Probably could... but don't have the patience lol. Plus what are the chances of finding an aftermarket wheel with the right size center cap hole?

You could get 17" Gram Lights for a little more than 1500 for wheels only and they look similar and would be a higher quality rim. When it comes to wheels not being patient to look on a couple wheel sites to find something you really like is stupid IMHO. Wheels are too critical of a choice to just buy some because you are impatient.

Look at these: http://www.wheelsdirectonline.com/volk/57P.htm

Well I have always liked the Konig Unknowns since they came out. Only thing is, according to Konig they won't fit but according to my local speed shop and a wheel company they will, so I dunno I'm a little leary about them. Those are also about $700 cheaper than the ones above so I dunno. AHHHH you are so right with wheels being so critical! Grrrr well them best I can say is that I've always liked the Unknowns and I get impatient looking around because I can't find anything I like better than them.

Konig Unknowns will fit... just get the correct offset. When it comes to wheels, do your own research.

Well as far as quality, who makes some decent wheels? My style wheel for my silver Tib would be a gloss black with polished lip. Personal preference would be a 5 or 6 spoke. I don't want to sound lazy about it, but I search about 3-4 sites a day and haven't been able to find decent wheels and I've been looking for more than 3 months now. So if anyone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it. As far as budget, I'd like to spend no more than $1200 for a set. Then if I can't find anything I like I'll buy new stock wheels cause mine have a little rash on them and I'll get them powder coated and have the lip polished. IMO the stock wheels are nice, but only if they were the color I'd like.

1200 for wheels and tires or just wheels. Do you want 17 or 18 inch? These factors make a big difference. Are you wnating a five spoke wheel?

Axis Hiro... yuck. TE37... barf. Oh well, looks like after I buy 2 new OEM 17"'s I'll just powdercoat them polished black and have the lip polished.
