Affordable aftermarket wheels?

Went in to Discount to get a low tire looked at. Turns out the rim had bubbles in the chrome on on the outside bead preventing a snug, airtight seal. They did their best to buff it out to make it smooth but no guarantee.

Any ideas for great looking AFFORDABLE wheels?

I looked on Criags for a set of Alcoas but no luck.

The search function here on the ORG is a wonderful thing... I'll give you a freebee though.

Here is a set of Alcoa's for sale for $360 shipped...

Sweet deal there, debating taking him up on that, where you located, I'm thinking of parting ways with my 20's

Thank you for the link. I searched but being new at this obviously didn't do it right.

Sold.

So I'm not so much interested in people finding me deals, although if you see something that'd be cool too, but more like ideas of kinds of great looking wheels you've seen that are pretty affordable. I see tons of pictures of great looking rigs with cool wheels, just no names of the wheels so I can look them up to see if they are affordable.
