Default Winter wheel question.

What are the cheapest wheels that I can buy for an 06 STI?
I have found wheels around $130 ea. but am looking to do better. They don't have to be pretty as they will be used as winters and for winter autocross events.
Does someone make a "steelie" that will fit an STI?
Thanks for reading.

Cheap alloys cost less in the long run unless you bend them or something. The future resell value alone will offset the higher initial cost.

I had steel winter wheels for my last car. I went through three sets of hubcps losing and breaking the POS after market ones. Had to shell out $20.00 in new lugnets because alloy wheels have thicker flanges then steel wheels. I bet you cant use your stock lugnuts because there too short.

The tirerack has 17" wheels under $100.00 each for your car.
