Default Suggestions on Where to Find Reasonably Priced OEM Rims

I've been scouring eBay, here, & Club GP looking for a set of OEM 17'' rims. eBay has plenty of the chrome 5 spokes I'm looking for, but the prices are ridiculous. Anyone have any other suggestions? I've found a set of swoops in excellent condition, but I don't like the looks of them.

Thanks,

Mark

even a dealer will be more than Ebay. the trick is looking at sites like ebay and craigslist everyday. often.

You have to be patient, and timing must be perfect. Or keep an eye on the forums, things like this come up often.
