Referring to my "wheels" posts in the suspension forum. I found some Monte SS aluminum wheels with near new tires for $200. I was wanting to go with 16x8 S-10 Xtreme wheels, but those S-10 punks think those wheels are made out of gold or something :roll: The Monte wheels have a nice look, and should match well with my Elky's SS conversion 8) I'll be off on a 5hr round trip journy this weekend to pick them up (5hrs, oh joy :cry: ) :lol:

Last summer I found two 86-88 MCSS rims in excellent condition, with the centercaps, at a local flea market. The guy was asking $5 each for them. Even though I didn't really need them I couldn't pass up that type of a deal. Now I've got two spares for my 86 MCSS.

Ya gotta be in the right place, at the right time.

Well...I guess it's a good thing you didn't drive the 5 hour round trip. Keep looking. Tis the season for spring swap meets. You should be able to get a complete set of MCSS rims for around $100 at most swap meets.
