i have a ‘17 Sport and I’m going to ride out these tires for this winter but next year definitely switching to snows. Thinking about getting a set of PI wheels to mount some dedicated snows. Anyone have the P/N for the PI wheels, or any places that sell knock offs?

Wanted to start the search now and build up my parts over the course of this year.

Thanks!

I bought mine from the dealer.DG1Z-1015-A I'm not aware of any knock-offs for this wheel. I also bought the center cap for them which required buying new lugnuts as well.

They show-up at municipal surplus auctions and scrapyards with some frequency, depending on location. I've seen full sets of surplus steelies with reasonably good tires still mounted sell for around $200 at auction. Of course, since I bought a PI a while back and want a second set of rims, they're suddenly scarce.

There are several on eBay for about $120 each, including shipping.

$120 would be a good price for the States where these wheels seem to be about 3X what they are here. I paid $88 each new from the dealer.

That's $120 or so for used OEM steelies, too. I know they're factoring in some for shipping, but $88 for new is a great price before shipping. Maybe you should get into the export biz.

A few members in the Detroit area actually came across the border and bought those wheels and took them back home.:)
