On CarRims.us, you will find a good selection of custom wheels and rims from selected wheel manufacturers and auto parts suppliers.  Be sure to purchase wheels that are designed for your automobile make, model, and year.  Alloy wheels are more likely to be stolen, so remember to purchase and install locking wheel nuts to help prevent theft, and be sure you have the unlocking tool handy for emergency use.  If you are not sure what to buy, discuss your rim options with the customer service staff before making your purchase.  They usually know about their product specifications and should be able to help you select the right rims for your car.
