Default Inexpensive black rims and online wheel shops

Hey all,

I'm looking for inexpensive black rims with silver lip for my gs. I know, you get what you pay for, but with buying my first home and other expenses on a single man's buget, it's low-cost rims for now. I thought I had what I wanted with these (PS'd on car by gstrance):

Click the image to open in full size.

They are Flik Wasp's. I'm familiar with Flik rims from my Audi days. Good quality, not terribly heavy, low price. BUT, they only come in 7.5 width in 18's (@$188 each).

So, I'm looking for something comparable. Low price, good quality, black with silver lip only in wider widths.. .any ideas?

Also, I'm looking for links to tire/rim shops online. I've tried tirerack and discount tire, but neither has what I'm looking for. Hoping to find more online shops to see what my options are. Any links are appreciated.

[edit] If I did get the 7.5 width in 18"s, what's the widest tire I could put on it without problems? Would it look too thin on the gs? [edit]

thx

rogue i believe the rears for the gs are 8's stock... so the tires will be pretty thin. with 8.5's that most that you should go is 255. (that is what brandon said at tirerack). don't get 7.5's on a gs. it would look bad. do you know what offset you need?
