Where to Buy Wheels/Tire

When I bought my 2004 Mustang new, I bought some knockoff Saleen style wheels off eBay. 8 years later they are crapping out...chrome is flaking, they don't hold air very well, etc. Could anyone recommend a good online wheel/tire dealer that can ship straight to your home? Looking a place that would ship them already mounted/balanced for a good price. Not looking for anything extravagant...just something decently affordable for a daily driver but yet looks nice.

Thanks!
-Mike

I took a look at American Muscle, but I'm just worried about buying replica wheels. The Saleen 18" replicas that I have now weren't the greatest quality. One wheel arrived bent, and the place (not AM) wouldn't exchange it without me paying retarded restocking fees and expensive charges of shipping the defective wheel back. I ended up having to take the wheel to a shop in St. Louis to have it fixed. As of now, I realize they are 8 years old, but they don't hold air for anything and the chrome is peeling horribly. I don't want to mess with the same stupid issues if I do decide to buy replicas again. What brand name or manufacturer even makes the replica wheels they sell on American Muscle?

I have no idea who manufactures their stuff- I'd think it's a variety, since they have so many choices. Really when it's all said and done, you get what you pay for.... And the thing that kinda sucks about buying online, is that while the prices are most definitely better than most of what I can find in my local shops, I can't look at what I'm buying before I get it- so it's hard to judge quality of the manufacturing and materials.

See that's the scary thing about them...you just don't know who makes the stuff. I really don't have any places around me that sell wheels. The local tire place can order wheels, but they only have catalogs to go by and have to call in to wherever just to get a price quote. They RARELY have anyone who orders wheels through them so they really didn't have much advice.

I'm sure the price would be good there, but I don't want someone else's used stuff. Looking for something new from a reputable dealer. I've just not bought much stuff for my car and just don't know where to look.
