I want rims...and I've been looking... What brands are worthwhile, and what is the biggest size I can get without altercations to the exterior of the vehicle. Does anybody know of any good websites that sell rims affordably, and sell them in packages? I'm talking wheels and tires.
So, brands...which to look for...
size...what size to loof for...
durability...what ones aren't gonna bend or snap or break
I'm only gonna be looking right now anyway. Pennsylvania has this thing called winter, and along with winter comes potholes...too many, and railraod tracks aren't good either. Thanks

Well, I have a 94 Lx 4 Door. I've seen some others that had 17", but I don't wanna do any rear fender curling or anything like that if I don't have to. I just want it real easy. What dimensions do i need...like 4 bolt or 5, 40mm or 35mm. What all would be needed to fit that perfect?

well, i know stock is 14", but i obviously don't want to get 14" rims. I'm thinking 17"...but, any suggestions of where to look for decent rims online? I know of www.wheelmax.com, but they don't have too many brands...and i didn't know if that Exel brand was any good or not(they have decent looking rims) So just hit back

Check out the selection of Rotas at ZXtuner.com. They're cheap and lightweight. If you just want bling you may want to look elsewhere.. Rotas are made for racing and are low on flash. Whatever you do.. find out how much the wheels weigh before you buy them.. and don't buy anything over 20lbs if you can help it. A lighter wheel gives a better ride & stronger grip... and it's especially important on a lightweight vehicle like the escort.

Rolling the rear fenders is a fact of life for 7" wide rims and most 205 width tires on 91-96 scorts. Fortunately, it's not hard to do by yourself for free in a matter of 20 minutes or so. You can always install the wheels and check the rear sidewalls for any signs of scraping or cutting from the fender wells for the first few hundred miles. You may get lucky.

Also, check out TireRack.com.. they've updated their site to include some wheel weight figures recently.
