I am looking wheels like kenesis or budnik 17X8 & 17X11 or 18X10 that will fit a 68 Chevelle. Bllack or charcoal center with polished or brushed lip.
Trying to find something reasonablely priced (cheap) I'm building on a budget. I still need trans, serpentine kit, fuel system, etc.
The wheels i want are Budnik GTX with charcoal center and brushed lip, but there $2500 for just the wheels. Trying to find a cheaper setup
Any help would be greatly Appreciated.

I would try e-bay...Maybe you'll get lucky.

I find most wheels to be severely overpriced, so I went with a set of OEM's. I scored a set of C6 polished wheels on LS1.tech the other day with two brand new front tires for $400 plus shipping. They're a little scratched, but they can be worked with.

I almost had a set of the C6 Z06 wheels on e-bay the other day (sended up selling for $560 bare), but I was worried that even with my mini tub, the 12 wide rears combined with the funky-ass offset would be too much..

I'll widen the C6's I bought if I can.

kenesis wheels will be much more than 2500 those wheels are near 1k a
piece like said above (oem or replicas both will need spacers) thats is the cheaper route or some american racing or coys... luckly for you, your willin to go with 17s cause 17 to 18 are usually a big price difference. intros and boze have pretty resonable prices on 17s

And if you've never dealt with billet wheels before, they are an absolute HORROR show to keep clean. I'll bought a set once and I'll never own another again. Chrome or paint or me from now on...

Check with Tim at PRRC (317-541-9590). He can work with your budget and get you some nice wheels. Plus they are giving a set away.

I can work you out a deal on billet specialties Street Smart line. Maybe the Fast Lane:


This wheel in 8's and 11's in 17" diameter with custom backspace is in the mid-high 1300 range.
