Best place to get OEM rims other than Ford?

I am looking for the 17" Bud wheels for a 2005 F350 with Dual wheels. I'm not willing to pay the outrageous price that Ford wants for them so is there anywhere else that they can be bought for new or like new condidtion? My truck didn't come with a spare (bought used) and the alloy rims in the truck are in rough shape and after cleaning and even going as far as trying an acid wash nothing will clean them up. Any sugestions would be welcome.

eBay would be a viable option.

True... but I would rather have an actual business to order from. Ebay, while great for hard to find items can be a PITA sometimes.

You're probably going to be doing some serious searching then. eBay is by far the best place for take-off wheels other than the once in a million chance you find something locally on Craigslist.

True again. I will talk to some local shops that upsize rims on trucks, they might have some for sale. If not then Ebay will be getting some business.

Thanks ZMANN, I was looking at those to. How well do they hold up? That would be a cheaper way to go. Still need a rim for a spare though.

you might find a spare on craigs list if you have one then it's local pickup

we had those simulators on a work truck I drove ,, never an issue but I live in a rust free state so IDK about you ,, I have seen them in chrome and aluminum .. start looking at dually trucks and you may see some on a truck ,, then you can quiz the owner

Check your local Ford dealer. I know when I picked up my truck, they had stacks of NTO wheels from purchasers changing wheels before they took delivery of the vehicle. When I asked for lariat 20's they didn't have them, but they had 18's with no tires for $400.

Craigslist is probably your best bet.
