Default 18'*?

I am seriously considering ditching the stock 5 stars and getting some 18'*. I have tried to look online but not having much luck.

I tried Tirerack.com but they only have 1 in the 18 size.

I tried TiresPlus.com (I get a discount thru work there) but I have yet to get the interactive wheel system to load on my computers. I also wen tto the store but the catalog pictures were poor quality and the ones I did kinda like were not available in 18'* or were application specific.

So those of you who already have them, got pics? any other places I can look?

Check out this site:

http://www.adaptivestrategies.com/Wheels.html

Don't forget your bolt pattern is 5-115mm. Very important when choosing new wheels!

I clicked on wheels.

It'* hard to find exactly what oyur looking for. I have the factory 5 starts so I want something a little different. I was thinking about something like but not real sure yet. PRice does matter too. I don't want to spend more than maybe $250 a rim if at all possible.

try www.discountedwheelwarehouse.com they sell packages with rim and tire toghether. You gotta call them toll free to set up the right tire for your rim and all. It may be little more spendy than you want but its worth it.
