Default Need help finding a rim



I purchased four of them with tires from a friend last year for the bonne. they were too short and looked a little funny, but I ran them anyways

I ended up braking one of them, nine of the twelve spokes are broke, happened last summer and they have just been sitting in my shed.

I was planning on selling them for the tires, but I would take about a $400 loss minimum :(


SO, I am thinking that these would look good on my Grand Prix and I am trying to find another rim, but can't find one anywhere....


It is a Katana Racing ( or just Katana ) "RIO" rim. 17x7 or 7.5

Painted is preferred, as mine are powdercoated grey anyways and painted is usually cheaper then chrome

thanks

Better copy that picture to your own photobucket account since hotlinking is disabled for that vendor.

I assume you tried the ebay, etc route?

do you know if they're discontinued or not? if they're discontinued, they can be a wee toughie to find.

I am thinking that they are disc.

It sucks, I really don't want to take such a huge loss on these
