I've been trying to find a set of 17" wheels for my snow tires in anticipation of having them ready to mount next season. Craigslist was a bust, everyone with OEM wheels wanted way too much.

I prefer steel wheels for the winter, however finding 17" steel wheels in a FWD bolt pattern and offset proved difficult. The 2014+ old body style Impala polics cars used a 5x115 17x7 steel wheel, but they can go for $100+ each because of how rare they are.

After doing a lot of digging, I came across an OEM replacement line of steel wheels made by Cragar. I used the 83-7718. It's a 17x7 wheel with a +38 offset, just like stock. It's a 5x100/5x115 multi hole wheel. I got mine from Jegs for $46.99 per wheel, which after a $20 off coupon and free shipping is a GREAT deal for a set of 4 brand new wheels, steel or otherwise.

At first, I was going to skip the TPM sensors and just ignore the warning light, but then Amazon offered me a $70 gift card if I signed up for their credit card. $70 for a couple point temporary hit to my credit score? I'm game. I got a set of 4 AC Delco TPM sensors for $68, so all is well. I'm also considering buying the Impala police center caps, just for fun.

All in all I'm out less than $200 for the wheels, tires, and sensors. I can mount and balance them myself, so that's free too. Bring on the snow!

Finding a set of "steelies" has always proven to be more difficult than expected.
Thanks for the source.
