Hey guys, does anyone know a Canadian retailer that sells replica OEM wheels, or real OEM at good prices?

I want to pimp out my dads minivan for him, his bday is coming up and I thought a nice set of OEM rims and tires to replace his steely hubcaps would be a neat gift.

The dealer wants like $600 a wheel, thats more than I paid for my 18" Rays lol, so thats not an option. I found online place that does $160 for real OEM and $140 for replica but they are based in the states and ship UPS. I want to avoid cross-border shipping costs if possible, especially with UPS.

Tires23 said they don't deal replicas and can only get them from the dealer.

Nothing on eBay.


Any suggestions?

Just pick up some used ones from the Marketplace.
Ship them to Canada...

Example of costs; rim cost + $80 for shipping from California + $45 brokerage and tax. You should be able to find a nice set for less than $100/rim. You might not be able to find 4 all at once, but the come up regularily.

Fast Wheels makes replica IS350 rims... they have a whole collection of replica wheels from various companies now. I'm actually like the look of a lot of the FAST rims now.

Craigslist :)

Seriously though, Craigslist is a GREAT place to find OEM wheels. A ton of people take them off and then sell them on there. Check it out ;)

:jawDrop: I can't wait to pull up beside your old man's minivan at a light and see him sporting the same rims as my winter setup. :wtf: :puke: :confused:

I'm all for you stepping up you father's wheel game or giving him some other practical gift for his birthday BUT please don't disgrace/devalue the IS by doing this.

Remember your father is already driving a minivan. Aside from the minivan from A-Team, Old School and a few select others, Minivans are WEAK. If you're rolling in a minivan you've pretty much thrown in the towel on being perceived as cool ('pimp'). I can respect that if the need warrants it (ie. kids or financial circumstances).

You've got a million other options. It's bad enough that civics, cavaliers and other imitators try to incorporate pseudo IS tail lights. Please respect our aging IS300s like you would your father.

Hehe I guess I should have mentioned it, but by OEM wheels I meant OEM dodge wheels not IS lol!

Not many people take those off so it's not that easy to find.
