I found some decent 18's. 18x7's....appear to be perfect fitwise. BUT. They're beat to hell. They hold air! But beat...For $150 though? Would it be worth it to buy them and get them patched up? Here's some photos...

I'd pass on those. They are definately beat to hell. There's no way you can repair them yourself. Save your money.

I agree. Pass. You can get nearly perfect after markets for like $250-$300

Not around my parts. I've looked for them on Craigslist. Most of the time they're wanting huge amounts.. :\


In either case, tell me. a 5x100 bolt pattern is immensely different then a 5x114 pattern?

In case you were not aware you CAN use rims from the LX cars if you so choose.

A difference of 14 mm in the size of the bolt circle (about 9/16"). Huge miss - won't mount.

Figured i'd ask since for some reason a few places online say 5x100 fit our cars.

5x100, not a chance in hell. 5x114.3 is OEM and many (myself included) use 5x115 (LX size).

Those in particular... no way Jose. It'll cost you 3x what you paid to restore them. Might be cheaper to get the same set brand new. I'd get those only as winter wheels.

Junk. Don't buy.

With the amount of bead damage I see I wouldn't count on them even as winter wheels. I bet there is a bunch of Fix a flat in a couple of those.

I may be looking into some special wheels or possibly another aftermarket. Stay tuned!

The ones in the pics are junk ! Unless the tires are BRAND SPANKIN NEW I would stay away from them ( If they werent brand new, I would be more afraid of the tires than the wheels )

I'll pile on to say these are junk, in case you are still wondering. If you know how to restore them yourself, or you pay 20% less that the weight in metal at junk yard purchase,then ok. If not, they are gonna make your car like like a beater because once you know the cost of redoing them, you will not be willing to pay that much.

Going to bump this.

Found some wheels. $200 for them. One had some road rash, and a slight bend to it. But it balanced out great.
