Default Finalizing a purchase, '05 'vert, in great shape

But I don't like the OEM alloy wheels, the clash with the retro body style. What's the best source for steelies, dog dish hubcaps and beauty rings. I would really like five so I can fabricate a full-size, matching functional continnental spare tire. Preferrable pre-painted in the color of my choice, I live in a condo, can't work on car in lot. Oh, and they have to ship to Hawaii, lots won't.

A rim with a contrasting color to the body would look sharp

Its a little off topic but how do you like it in Kailua-Kona on the big island?
I lived in Wahiawa, Island of Oahu for 3 years but it got to be too expensive.

I think your vert would look a lot better with another set of wheels like on your four door, George. Those other ones are ugly.
