Default WTB: 16" alloy wheels - cheap

I am looking for another set of wheels for my wife's 03 WRX to use as track wheels. I need something really cheap though (scuffs, wrecked paint, gouges are OK as long as the wheels aren't bent) any 16" wheel that will fit is good as long as it's really cheap. Ideally i'd like to find some 16x7 stock wheels from a GC 2.5 RS, but i'm open to anything that will fit. Located in Edmonton.

Shane - I don't know what you consider cheap but here some on the Toronto forum. They would be about $65 to ship with Greyhound. http://www.toronto-subaru-club.com/f...ad.php?t=89240

Thanks for the link Mike. Unfortunately, that's over what my budget (well really anything's over my budget, but i figured it'd be kinda hard to find anything for $0 ). The absolute most i could spend would be $300 including any shipping. I know i probably won't find any 16x7 RS wheels for that, but i thought it's worth a shot; hoping maybe someone in AB would have a set so i could avoid paying shipping fees and thus maybe be able to afford something.

Man, stock WRX/RS wheels are selling so cheap in the US ($150-$200 USD with almost new stock tires). But i guess most people need them for the winter here in Canada. Anyone know what it would cost to get a set of stock wheels sent here from the US? I wonder if i could find individual wheels for a decent price at an auto salvage or something?

Thanks,
Done.
That should be enough of this thread jacking..

Shane - I don't think you will find RS wheels at a wrecker for cheap since they are $600each from the dealer, wreckers will usually sell for $175-$200each
As far as getting wheels from the US I would guess around $100bucks for shipping.

Hmmm... maybe i should just buy some from the US and sell the tires to help pay for the shipping cost?
