Newbie from central Florida

Greetings from Winter Garden (just west of Orlando). Just purchased an '03 and I'm lovin' it. It came with monster custom wheels that I would just as soon not have, i.e: 305/40 R22 & 275/40 ZR20. I'm looking to replace them with original wheels. I would like to find some especially nice used ones, if no luck there I guess it's on to internet suppliers. Any help you folks could supply for this project would be greatly appreciated.*

If anyone is interested in the biggies that are on there now make me an offer and I probably won't refuse it. You just have to come pick them up. Text 425-341-4444 for pics.

I don't think you're trying too hard SilverMo04, there's a bunch out there for sale, especially on the the SSR web site and AutoTrader.

Welcome Weatherdon, stock wheels shouldn't be too hard to find as a lot of people have put custom wheels on. I have a couple sets but shipping is a bear.

Often wrong...... but never in doubt.

Weatherdon, welcome to the party from Houston, Texas! -

You're going to enjoy your R experience even more once you start rubbing elbows with other local owners. You're in a nest of fellow Fanatics there in central Florida.

Thanks David, a couple of central Florida guys have already contacted me and I look forward to meeting them.
Something you "experts" with this forum could possibly help me with since I'm still feeling my way around. While browsing a few days ago I saw a posting for a guy who had glove box assemblies for sale around $30 including shipping. Of course the posting may be really old. The striker latch has gone bad on mine. His posting also included his phone number. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome from Jupiter Fl. I would bet you are going to make a bunch of friends and SSR owners real fast where you are.
I have a set of wheels for sale also with ok rubber on them but in all reality they would need refinished to be perfect. Looks like you have a few options already closer to you
