I usually use tire-rack.com for buying wheels and the like. Unfortunately, they are still not updated with the caliber so I can't browse items which fit the car. Is there anything else I need to know besides the rim being 17" to fit the vehicle? I was quoted $166/rim for the factory alloys. Some of the 17" rims on tirerack sell for below this so I could get something else.

I don't need any thing fancy... any other decent rim sites out there?

Beware the quality of some of those cheap(er) rims on tirerack.com. I got some of the cheapest 17" alloy rims they had there ($109 each on clearance if I remember correctly) and they were all bent a couple months later. Makes for an interesting ride.

You also have a very low profile tire on them. And you smack the shit out of potholes. If anything, i'm surprised they haven't broken yet.

Be carefull of the type of rim you choose. Polished rims need a lot of work to keep up. (words of experience) Steveb
