    Ok, so as many of you know, I keep bending these soft as hell 22s. Well I found yet another bent wheel last night, making #5. I'm fed up, so I'm getting rid of them.

    This is where CGM comes in - I need some help figuring out what direction I need to go. I'm basically down to 3 options and I'm not sure which way to go.
    1) find some steelies and save for a nice setup
    2) find some decent stock wheels and find some 33s for them
    3) find a decent/cheap set of new aftermarket 17s

    Simple enough, right? Not really. I've got issues with each option, making it that much more complicated.
    1) If I go with steelies, odds are I won't ever get to really save up for a nice setup.
    2) decent stock wheels are hard to come by in my area, and usually people want an arm and a leg for a nice wheel/tire combo
    3) if I find new, odds are I will have to finance some of it. Lucky the local shop offers 0% for 6 months if I go that route.

    My budget is ~$500

    So what do I do guys? And please keep the negative/useless comments to yourself, I'm seriously looking for some advice here.

    Dean I think you need a set of wheels made of either titanium or hardened steel.

    That's the wheels he has.

    What would be tire sizes to look at for those? Would need to stick to a 33-34 unless I pull the spacers and go 35.

    Dean don't put spacers on. With your luck you'll probably fuk those up too.

    unless your a idiot and dont tighten them or check them when you rotate, wheel spacers wont really fuck up.
