Default ATTN Luke @ TR New wheels?

Luke
I've noticed that the Tirerack is blowing out all kinds of wheels on special. Is there any hit of some new wheels coming out shortly? Mainly 5X100's for my new FXT Limited. Nothing really hits me right now or its a bit on the chunky side.

Love to find a nice 5-6 spoke 18X8 with a decent lightweight. Preferably darker grey or matte finish.

Am i asking for too much?

I guess i should have been a little more specific. New wheels AT Tirerack. Not just your house brand

And why is everything 7.5's?

Wow, I really like those and only $159/wheel?

Is that the normal price on those or is that a special price right now and they will eventually go up in price?

I think they are not going up in price. They are going away. IE new wheels coming out sometime.
i think mine are due in tomorrow

Awesome, post up pictures when you get the new wheels. Looking forward to seeing them on your car.

Dang ... I was in San Diego this past week and was so busy I didn't get a chance to drop in and say Hi. Oh well, hopefully on another trip.
