Default Replacement Rims

I recently purchased a 2007 Roadster with 37,000 mi. The rims had quite a few scratches/gouges/curb rash on them. I went to get new tires today. The technician noticed one of the rims has also been bent pretty bad on the inside. So I am considering replacing all four rims and was looking at Alloy Crossfire Replacement Rims from a place called the Wheelership (https://www.wheelership.com/brand-ne...-rim-2229.html).

Does anyone have any advise on using aftermarket rims, or perhaps experience using products from the Wheelership? I would appreciate it if anyone could please share any of their experience or advise. Thank you.

Just from what I read, I would give them a try.

Thank you! I can get all four rims for about $650 shipped. They look good. I knew my rims looked pretty rough. But I did not know one of my rims was bent. Its bent pretty bad, but not visible from the outside.

Thank you for this information, but I need to keep the stock size, as I already have the tires. I just ordered the stock size for $557.56 delivered.

Hello,
I am wondering how you found them in the 5x112 bolt pattern for the Crossfire? I went to several sites the closest they make that wheel in bolt pattern wise is a 5x114.3 pattern. Redrilling the wheels to the 5X112 makes me a bit concerned.

hub is what holds wheels centered not the lugs.
I posted pics on my thread 19x10 or 19x10.5 has pics of the holes, they are not filled and drilled, or drilled with a additional holes, some use a 5x114.3 pattern with wobble bolts, that are made for mounting a 114.3 on a 112.
I also posted the clearances pics.
put many miles on and been running great.

I purchased and installed these Rims from the Wheelership. Its been about a month now. They were about $550 shipped. They went on fine and look like stock. The technician was impressed with how true they are. Little weight was needed to balance them. One required no weight.

I now have new Goodyear Eagle F1 Assymetric All Season Tires and new wheels. About $1600 total. Overall, I'm very happy.

Got them from a distributor and they drilled them, and sent hub spacers.
the tire shop I always use which is awesome, has put 5 sets of aftermarket rims on Crossfires before and they suggested to stud the hubs, they had 3 of the 5 had vibration, they studded the wheels and it was gone, they said they don't know why, but it worked.
mine had some vibration, for the first 100-140 miles then smooth, was planning on ordering some studs the next week, but had a 3.5 hr drive on the interstate the next day after putting them on, and been smooth ever since.

mainly the weights are needed for the tires.
when I bought my I had them put each one on the balancer before mounting the tires.
ANY wheel better be true
