    Temp Wheels?

    I've been looking to sell the Camaro wheels on my blazer so I had some money to put into it (I don't really like them and I figure I can get a chunk of change for them). I thought I'd just pick up OEM wheels cheap, but the best I can find is about $75 a wheel. Which is alright, but I'm still looking for like $150 for all 4 wheels just so it has something lol

    Any suggestions where to find something cheap? Junk yards don't seem to be too much cheaper. I'll buy 20s someday, but I just don't have the money for that right now. :mad:

    Anything wrong with the Camaro wheels or the tires? They will look nicer once you lower the truck since they seem to have a low profile tire. Why not just keep the set instead of selling them and then trying to find another factory set and only coming out a few dollars ahead.

    Nothing wrong with them, I really was just trying to come out a little ahead is all :cool:. But you're right, when I finally drop my truck they'll probably look much better haha. I was just seeing what options I had.

    haha I like it man. The size really does help make them look even better. Maybe I'll swap out to a set of these some day :cool:

    Looks good. I'm planning on going lower if I can manage it, so hopefully it turns out just as clean as yours.

    I'll probably order something like that then soon. All 4 tires are losing air constantly. I got them with the truck and clearly they're old.

    On a totally different note, does anyone know where I can get the center caps for the wheel? I'm missing 3 of them.
