Where are you from? If you don't mind putting it up on your profile for us to see, it makes it alot easier to find you a good deal. I only ask because if a member lives near you who can recommend a local shop to you, we'd be more than happy to help. Otherwise, Summit and Jeg's are universally recommended by me. Good Luck.

i got mine at discount tire center cause they were cheapest as far as tires and wheels together. wheels alone les schwab was about the same. ebay would prolly be cheapest as far as plain old ordinary 15's.

Try Rim Stop . I was gonna buy some rims from them for my Mustang, because they have layaway (how cool is that?), but they didn't have anything I wanted. I was fixated on the Edelbrock 429, they discontinued it, and now I really don't care what rims end up on the car.

I've had really good luck at Summit's return bin! I happened to walk in just as they set out 4 15x7 torque thrust wheels that were floor samples. I paid $25 EACH!

He he, that's exactly why I want a set of Torque Thrusts, instead of the wheels that look like Vegematic attachments.

Chev38,
Those deals at centerline are incredible!! I was about to order a set of 14" wire rims for my 64 fairlane, but what I really wanted was a big shiny set of 17's. However the prices were all really high, and I'm a college student so every penny saved means I can eat that day! Now I'm reconsidering on the wires... Thanks for the great link.
