Default Looking for FXT wheels.

I'm looking to upgrade my summer tires to 225/50R17, but I need to find wheels to go with them. I'm thinking that means I need 17x7.5, +48 offset, 5x100.

Frankly, though, I don't know where to go in Edmonton for wheels. It's easy to find dedicated Subaru wheels online, but I'd like to know what the local vendors have to offer.

Would anyone have recommendations on wheel shops I should check out? And places that sell Subaru wheels in particular?

I'd like to see what $200 - $300 CDN will get me, as this isn't exactly a rally machine that I'm driving. That said, I'd like something attractive and light. Too much to hope for? If so, then I could open the range somewhat.

Sorry, that was $200 - $300 CDN per, not total.

Ah, then you should be fine. I picked up a set of Motegi Racing 17x7s with Ventus VE-4 tires from Tiretrends for about $980 shipped.

At $1200 for rims alone you can easily get something much fancier.
