2001 Focus ZX3

Well I took my car to the shop after it was vibrating heavily after I had a flat tire. They told me 3 rims are bent and I am about due for new tires. So I looked over at tirerack.com and didn't see anything I wanted or what I they had was not in stock or not 16 inch rims. (205/50/16)

I found a couple OEM rims on-line going for about 200 each. Seems a little high to me. Anyone know a good place for the 01 rims? I don't mind aftermarket but I don't really need flashy. Just don't want the car to shake over 60.

Also quick question, Can fixaflat cause an unbalance in your rim? Car was fine till I had a flat and put that stuff in there, shop said rim prob bent while it was low.

Thanks you.
Jasin

If I was in your current situation, I'd go ahead and buy aftermarket rims that look better than the stocks, but that's just because I really want aftermarket rims. I know you're wanting to go cheap... Look in the Sell Forum and eBay and see what you can find. People are always wanting to sell their stock rims when they purchase aftermarket ones.

And as to the question about the fixaflat, I have no idea. Sorry.

Thanks for the reply, I didn't really see any in the forsale section so I think I am just going to go with these rims.

and these tires.
