Looking for some help here. I can't seem to find any 17X10.5 wheels for the rear of my car. They are the polished(not Chrome) stock wheels now, and I would like to go a little wider on the back but keep the stock look. Have looked at a ton of sites, but no one seems to have them. Any ideas? Used is OK also, but would prefer new. Thanks for any help.

I got mine from AFS and they are the 03 style that are not chrome like you are asking about. I got a full set of 17X9 in the front and 17X10.5 in the rear and they are great rims. I am sorry to say that I just checked the 2 sites and could not find them. You may have to call them afswheels.com and see if they are going to make some.

Be careful of wheel replicas ... I ordered a set of Bullit wheels and the lug holes were so tight that you always ended up scratching up the finish when changing tires. I just didn't think much of the rim quality, construction, and finish. The AFS ones were much better.

Thanks for the sources and particularly the advice. A little stuck now, since AFS doesn't have any. No immediate need, I just want them! You know,the immediate gratification deal. Guess I can wait a bit...

I have no experience with aftermarket wheels except for BBS so I appologize for just throwing out web sites that have the wheels. If AFS is the top dog for aftermarket wheels, there seems to be a decline in what they offer. :(
