Default Q: where to buy rims for '93 Bonnie

Hi, everybody!
I need advice on the following: prices in different places have nothing in common. An OEM 12-slot remanufactured can be from $380 to $140. I think I'm missing some sacred knowledge.... what is the trick with prices?
Thanks for ideas!
Vladimir

Are you trying to buy STOCK GM rims? If so, tell us exactly (describe) which ones, and well help you dig.

Yes, just trying to get refurbished standard wheels... but the prices differ. In AAArims it is "16x7 in., 5 lug, 115mm. 12 slots. SilverGreenBlackBlueGreyRedWhiteBeige $ 138.00"
the other place quotes something different, namely
http://www.wheels-and-rims.com/cgi-b...48103130019.87

It'* a trick of some sort - either aaarims items are just painted and otherwise are no good, or that other place is somewhat unreasonable....so, i need a hint as regards the reasonable prices for used rims...

Of course, there is tyrerack and discounttires web stores, but the stock rims are the strongest of all.

Thanks a lot!

Regards,
Vladimir

I don't have any experience with either, but it seems like AAArims has all of the different wheels ever made for the Bonneville. Send them a message and ask them where they get the wheels, and what type of condition are they in, and what do they do to clean them up.
