Post Help Finding Wheels

I need a little help here ....I want to get some chrome wheels for my
truck this spring. I have been on line almost daily looking at rims from
one web site after another trying to find rims that will work on my truck.
But it is not working for me I need to see them and compare them in person
actually be able to put a rim next to the truck and see how it will look.
Most of the sites that have the carfiguator are either not working,only cover
mustangs or have not been updated to 2009. So here is my question (finally)
Can somebody tell me where there is a performance / tire shop that has a good selection of rims on display . Anywhere in southern Ontario or maybe even in the USA (Michigan,Ohio,ect).
Your Imput and Suggestions are Greatly Appreciated.

Thanks
Larry

Larry, check this place out. They offer a pretty good selection on hand and can order anything you want in. They are located in Etobicoke.
You will find with most rim shops up here that they really don't stock alot of the 6x135 bolt pattern street style wheels for our trucks as the market is almost entirely dominated by the GM trucks/SUV's with the 6x139 bolt pattern which is the same pattern Toyota and Nissan run aswell on there trucks. Ford as far as I know is the only manufactuor that runs the 6x135 pattern. Also if your planning on running street style wheels make sure you get a plus 30 to plus 35mm offset.
What size rim are you after, 20"/22"ect???

Have you considered the 20" older style Chrome Harley rims? They are available in the newer 6x135bp. There was a discussion on here last night about them if you look through the threads.

Not a bad option for $899usd!

I may have found a place right down here in Portcredit. Xteme Tire Garage where I bought my winter tires carries a good selection of wheels and they have that carfiguator
web site so you can see the wheels on your truck . I will keep you posted. In the mean
time you can check out there web site.

so far my favourite for my truck is a torq thrust style. Trying to see how the chrome style will look on my truck.
