I Need Wheels: What Should I Get?
 
So, I was just up at Goodyear to get an alignment and balance and well... Turns out all 4 wheels are out of round. Blah. So.. I need new wheels! Looking for suggestions. Most of the ones I've liked don't seem to come in the right size or are discontinued.

The guys at the shop were partial to these: http://www.customwheelsexpress.com/c...els-p-470.html so I might do those unless I can find anything super better.

I want to keep my tires so I need 17x7.5-8 and gotta keep it under $550 for the set.

here's the car:

So, what do you all think? The ones I picked or something else?

I don't know if I'm crazy about the single bright ring for my car- they look awesome on your st though! Why you selling em? They go with the car so well.

Playing with the idea of a wider wheel and stickier tires to help put the power down.

Ooo, those are nice too, aren't they. The konigs hadn't popped up in my searches- looks like they are only listing for 17x7 though- not sure I could go down to that with my tires?
