Just a local wheel and tire shop, nowhere special. If you get somewhat younger guys, they are more willing to try ideas out then some of the old guys who just push for factory sizes I find.
I'm pleased with the narrower size other then I brake loose on acceleration from a stop now because my tires are 3 sizes narrower and have a smaller contact patch. I also figure there's a lot of weight savings going so much narrower.
But I'm happy because the winter tires have a nice wade bead on them to prevent curbing and such, so it's more piece of mind.
I threw the cheapest wheels I could find onto it and they were boss Motorsport wheels in black, and they don't look bad at all. They just need to get me through 3-4 months. May be looking for nicer after markets for summer also, I can't stand excess rotating mass on vehicles, and oem wheels are made stronger to take the run flat tires which are also heavier and ride like crap in my opinion. Only time will tell as I don't mind the stock wheels.
