Default Urgent Need: 15" Steel Rims

Hi All,

My Mom's ride (Getz) just lost one 195/50/15 Silverstone to a sidewall tear. Therefore, instead of buying another crappy Silverstone tire, I'm contemplating purchasing Yoko's and getting rid of the Silverstones.

Planning to use one of these Silverstones as a Stepney in the Getz and another as a stepney in the OHC which is on 205/50/15. Not the ideal thing to do but atleast a better situation than the current 13" stepneys in both cars. Then i'll sell the remaining 2 Silverstones.

Therefore, is anyone in a position to give/sell me One 15" Rim for the OHC and/or One for the Getz. Alternatively, please advice where I can buy these in NCR.

Need to get the Getz back on road over the weekend - urgent help will be appreciated.

Regards,
Manveet.

Surrjee, it's for a Stepney. I am thinking more in line of a used Rim for 200 bucks or so. I got 600 bucks when I sold the Getz steel Rims !!

You never mentioned about the budget so i thought this would be a cheaper option than buyin 15" alloys.

Elantra will not fit. Go down to your local used car parts market and ask for a Corolla steel rim. Should be 300 bucks. Will fit OHC and Getz.

Only the base Corolla comes with Steel Rims, so very less likely to get Corolla rims.
