    Plan B--New wheels?

    Ok, I finally got the answer I needed from you guys and my dealer, not that I like it. Without spending too much time trying to research this, what are my options for aftermarket one-piece chrome wheels? Can you direct me to recommended websites or vendors?
    Thanks Sue

    You are not interested in buying a new rim from the dealer to match? No other dealer will sell identical ones, meaning you will need to buy all 4. It will probably be cheaper to buy just one from the dealer. The other thing to consider is that you might be able to buy a used rim in good condition. Check your local junk yards or "used" rim shops. We have those here in chicago though I am pretty sure most of them are stolen.

    A lot of dealers will pull off the factory 20" chrome techs and swap on their own aftermarket wheels. Call a few local dealers to see if they have any "take offs" that they'd part with.

    Probably the lowest cost solution I can think of.

    Buying one wheel is the obvious easy fix, but now that I witnessed how easily these "chrome-tech" wheels are damaged, Maybe I want good solid wheels like the Denali had. Not sure, just looking at all the options.

    If you are looking at the aftermarket world, Tirerack.com is one of the biggest and reliable online wheel and tire companies out there. I've used them twice with fast and accurate service. They have wheels already for our SRX, not many yet, but some. Looking to upgrade myself from the 18" factory wheels.

    Here's a good question to put in here too, what bolt pattern and offset does the new SRX use? Same as the old one?
