I was wondering if anyone here (in the US - primarily on the east coast) have the stock aluminum alloy rims that come standard on the LX/EX V6? If you've recently upgraded your rims to aftermarket and don't need/want your OEMs then please let me know. I would like to upgrade the stock steel rims but keep the OEM look. Thanks!

Check ebay out from time to time. You might get lucky like me when I was looking for a set of 4 steel wheels for my Sorento. (Going to mount snow tires on them) It took a couple of months but I came across a set of 4 and bought them right away.

I paid $140 shipped to my house. The dealer wanted over a grand for them.

Stock steel wheels. They will make a good winter rim. Here is a pic.
