Hey

How many people got the steel wheel with the thought of later getting the rim for it, and if you did any thoughts on which rim looks good on the xB

I just got my Xb 08 yesterday and I am planning on replacing the steel wheels in the spring of 08. I would like to keep the tires on the steel wheels for a winter set and run the nicer wheels in the warmer months (snow/salt around here. Since I want two sets of rims/tires, I will have to purchase the air pressure sensors for the new wheels which might get expensive.

My dealer has a service program plan (12, 24, 36, 48 months) that will allow me to purchase the Scion alloys with a 15% discount. I might find a better looking wheel or a better deal between now and next spring.

Cool, I really like the stock rim but how does the price of the 4 stock rims compare to say going out and getting some rims?

My dealership had an Enkei version of the alloys which look almost identical to the Scion alloys (minus the Scion logo). I had a choice of silver or black, but I stuck with silver. I couldn't find them on Enkei's website, so probably some kind of special Scion deal. Anyway they were $695. I could've waited and gotten a different style cheaper somewhere else, but I happen to like the double spoke look of these. They have kind of a liquid silver finish, and I think they look pretty good.

Chicklit...Who put the new rims on, the dealer or an aftermarket place? Did you have to buy new sensors for the tire pressure monitor or did you just have them transfered from the stock wheels?

Thanks

The dealership installed them. If I understood correctly, the sensors were reused. The $695 was the total price for the wheels, & installation, so it all worked out good!

Could you tell me how much you paid for the new tire pressure senders that they installed on your new rims? Thanks
