    Hey all,

    I'm hopefully pulling the trigger on a new wheel base soon, and need some rims to go with it. I know what I want with the full-fat paddle shift/button box option, but I also want a simple/bare rim to go with more manual orientated cars.. - Where do you guys get your rims? I've checked out some official suppliers, but they're a little pricey.

    I think I'm after something that's ~32cm, more or less round, and (I think) alcantara bound.

    ? What's your problem?
    Badgerous asked where we buy our rims, and i answered. That has nothing to do with your rim, i've just answered!
    And if you think ebay has stupid prices, well i've bought:
    - Thrustmaster P310 Sparco, once used for 140€
    - Thrustmaster F599XX Alcantara, slighly used for 75€
    - Thrustmaster Open Wheel for 125€ brandnew
    - 2 Momo Mod.26 260mm for 100USD each brandnew
    - Momo Mod.11 260mm for 125€ brandnew
    - Thrustmaster T300 Ferrari Integral with Alcantara wheel and T3PA for 96€, slightly used

    All you need is time and a little bit luck.

    What base are you going to get? Does it support custom wheels?
