Can't find local takeoffs

I thought I was being smart by not financing alloy wheels for my new Prerunner. Little did I know what a time-suck it was going to be finding them later.

Not only are they almost not to be found, they cost a hell of a lot more than if I had bought them from the dealer outright. I've got a connection for good deals at one of the big chain tire stores, but they can't get factory rims, only after market stuff which I don't feel look as good.

Other than flea-bay, how do you track down takeoff rims locally? Craigslist is empty. I'm in Austin, Tx. Thanks.

I was just in Austin, TX last month too bad I flew there instead of driving my Tacoma, I would have sold you my TRD Sport wheels. Not sure if you were looking for those. Anyways I'm sure you can keep checking the Buy / Sell / Trade for some OEMs. Texas people help him out?

How long have you been looking? They come up on austin craigslist at least once a month. Check houston and San antonio craigslist too.

I've only been looking for a few weeks. There was a nice set on Craigslist for 200 bucks that disappeared instantly. Other than that, it seems to be slim pickens.

Easiest way to check craigs list is to use http://www.craiglook.com/

You'll be able to do a mass search for whatever distance you enter that way if your good with driving you can find a set.
