why are 14" 4x100 rims so hard to find?

every time I run a search on craigslist for wheels, it seems like I can get:

-17" rims...all the time

-17" rims AND tires for less than it costs to get a set of 14" steel rims

-did I mention I can get 17" rims?

all I want is either OEM 14" rims, or similarly sized wheels so that I can put my current tires on there (95% tread remaining), and use the steelies with a set of snow tires in the winter

so...anyone know where I can get a used set of 14" OEM wheels or a set of AEM 14" rims for cheap ($100 range)?

Keep trying on Craigslist, Ebay, and Amazon. You won't find OEM steelies for very cheap anywhere else. I would've given you mine, but I had the shop dispose of them when I got my wheels.

Hey Bhavesh,

Where you at? There's a guy here in Westminster, CO, that specializes in salvaging corollas. Got an engine from him before, and a steelie for $20. When I got the steelie, he said that he also had the aluminum rims for more omey, I don't remember how much, it was way under $100 though.

Have you thought about hubcaps? I got a 4 pack from wally world for $15, and they look badass, much better than the stock caps. I had costco put them on, never had a hubcap fall off with them.

thanks, but I'm all set with hub caps

but I am interested in the alloy wheels...can you give me the name of the company or guy so I can give him a call?

I'm located in Massachusetts btw

otherwise, thanks for the responses guys, but when I said $100, I meant for all four wheels

an example would be something like this...

http://boston.craigslist.org/nwb/pts/727933049.html

^^ four alloy 14" 4x100 wheels for $150
