Im planning a holiday to Florida later this year and was wondering if any of you guys could recomend some alloy wheel shops/web sites? So i could maybe pick up a set whilst over there and save on the huge shipping costs!

I have found quite a few America base web sites selling stuff thats hard to get over here. Problem is they all seem to be based in California!

Any help or advice on where to try would be greatly apreciated.

Thanks guys. :)

I bought my a few years ago through a retail chain called Pepboys. They were on clearance. Haven't looked there for sometime. What area are you going planning to be around?

I'm about 15 minuets away from Clermont so keep me informed. What size wheels are you looking for? I was assuming 13-ings.

Im actually looking for 16". :oops:

I know everyone says smaller is better for performance and handeling but im not building a race car!
I've had a set of 15" for years but want to go a little bigger for that visual impact 8) My 15" are pretty heavy so if i find a set of 16" which are lighter i may actually improve performance? :wink:
