Tirerack fail! Vendor Recommendations?

Hey guys, was wondering if you could point me to a reputable wheel dealer.

Tirerack is the shit, however the rims I want are stuck in a 3-4 month backorder. Out of the question.

So I was wondering you guys could help me out in finding another place.

The link below is the rim of choice. Evo 5's :)

http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...All&sort=Brand

Thanks in advance.

yea try discount. However if they are on backorder and none of the location in the US has a set then your in for the wait. Make sure when you go or call there that they do a US territory search. Most wont because they want to try to get rid of the wheels they have sitting in the back.

If the wheels are on back order for tirerack.com it is more than likely going to be on back order for other companies as well unless they carry them in stock which is not likely since most of them cleared out most of inventory due to being end of fiscal year and having to pay taxes on inventory that is on hand. Good luck on your search.

Reality sucks eh? lol I know I've had to wait for wheels to come back into stock because of being on back order as well but then when the new lines came out I usually found something different that I wanted lol
