17" are $499. There are only three styles for that price, but others are supposed to be reduced too.
Look under "more departments"

A place that me and my friend's have ordered from is www.wheelmax.com Free shipping if you order wheel/tire packages, cheaper than average prices on name brand rims, and no tax (unless you're from Florida or Nevada). Hope that helps some people out! :D

"Them rims like like they came from Kmart!"
"Yo, man, I gots mine from Sears!"

When I copied and pasted the link, it was for my local store. I thought it would show up correctly.
Anyway, the wheels list for around $750 and they are chrome and not bad looking. I have the 14" version of one of the styles on my Plymouth Breeze and I get a lot of compliments.
And if you want to spend a bundle of money for wheels just to say you got them at XYZ Speed Shop, that's your decision. There are a lot of really ugly wheels out there that cost over $1000 per set. Personally, I would rather save the money and use it for other mods.

Well, if someone thinks that he's "cool" or "bad" because some shop installed a full set of lowering springs and the most expensive set of tires and wheels on his ride, then that's OK for them.
The people I know would laugh at me for installing such simple modifications which take ABSOLUTELY no talent or effort whatsoever and identify it as a custom. It is just a stock vehicle with nice wheels and tires, nothing more.
14 inchers are definitely history, but to me 18 inchers on Hondas, Lexuses or whatever just produces another lookalike vehicle that can be duplicated anywhere.

Have you seen some of the later style ARE wheels? There are some really nice designs that they offer. I especially like the old style Torq Thrust 5 spoke ones. They look good on anything.
A mechanic up the street just restored a 65 Mustang with a highly modified 302 and put 16" Torq Thrusts on them. It looks awesome!!
I have always liked simplicity when it comes to design. Many of these new designs with the complex curves and everything are hideous, and especially so when there is no offset to them.
