I have 16" Silver MB Chaos wheels in stock. They aren't the cheapest wheel out there but right now we are running a web special for $50.00 off when you purchase a full set and shipping is FREE. Let us know if we can help. We should have the black finish in stock in the next few weeks.

I should probably mention this here. I am working on a write up that compares steel wheels to Aluminum alloys. It covers a lot of things like strength, cost, weight. etc. I have punched the numbers and if you are budget minded go with an aluminum alloys. Here's a quick example of why. I'll have a more detailed write up posted soon.

FWIW: Steel wheels themselves may be cheaper but once you punch all the numbers they are not all that much cheaper and in the long run they will cost you more. Here's an example: Summit has 16x8 Cragars for $62.00 each + $12.00 for shipping and handling (set). These do not come with the center caps. Cragar center caps are usually around $12.00 each. Now, in order to run these you will also most likely need to purchase a bolt on spacer to get them to clear the brakes on the frontier. A decent set of bolt on spacers will run you $100.00 for the set. Add these numbers up and you're looking at $102.00 each. Looking at that a "cheap" set of steel wheels will only save you about $30.00 over an affordable alloy wheel (MB Chaos suggestion above). If you then consider that a steel wheel is usually about 30-40% heavier in weight you may realize that you'd quickly spend that $30.00 savings at the pump.
