Keep the ones that you have, and check the weekly Sears catalogs, they run deals on rims almost every week it seems. If you are looking for rims check you local tires shops and get in good with the managers and tell them what you are looking for and your price range, they may keep you in mind to unload a set fast so they dont sit in their shop.

save that 200 to go towards rims you actually want and took the time to look for.

This.
I say if you like them then go for it but if not I would just save up and get you a decent set :)

I like these rims, but I think they would look damn good using the Duplicolor Black Chrome kit.

yea i think they might work if painted black, but they look pretty f'n heavy though too.

i might have to give this guy a call... they would be a nice set of summer wheels once painted black (and if you saw how bad my stockers are getting eaten from the salt around here in winter, you would realize alot of things look better) lol

n im not going to spend much on rims, im either going cheap or nothing (sounds dumb) but yea, if i dont find a cheap used set im not getting any at all (i cant really afford to blow $500++ dollars on rims in school even though those rims indeed look nicer) $200 though might be do-able

hey you guys i was messing with PS and i think i came up with something great here.. what do you think of this...

something to remember: my wheels are getting rather eaten up from salt now so they look kinda crummy with corrosion n all :(

here would be my plan:
stripping clear off my stock rims with aircraft remover, painting inner edges black along with the lugs n center cap (putting a red chevy bowtie in the center), then polishing the crap outta the aluminum rims, and finally clearing it.. sounds like lots of work but it looks pretty good in this Photoshop.. what do you think?

yea this would probably be a one wheel per week kinda project, when i have access to the shop. working on car and being in dorm doesnt work so well
