The pair I just bought from an eBay vendor were $53 each plus shipping. Clean, no scratches. I was very pleased.

Just search for "Taurus Wheel 16" and be patient. Most of the listings are for single wheels starting at $79 with "buy it now" for $99. Lots of them available. Look for the best deal.

Also try car-parts.com and see if the local junkyards near you have them. Also, don't really know what you guys are talking about balancing the rims. You normally balance the tire with the rim, not just the rim.

ya but when they are balaced the guys arent to friendly about it... they just kinda beat them in to submition and it scraches the rim...

and the wheels i am looking are are at the ONLY junckyard around me lol :( being in a small town can have its downsides (usualy more down that up but i like it)....

Most of the self-serve wreckers around here charge more for alloy wheels than steel, and more for larger-diamerter ones as well.

I think I'm going to try and sell my black SEL rims. Balanced and the tires are goodyears with only 3k on them, paint is chipped on a couple places on one wheel. Any one know what kind of shipping would be the cheapest?

I paid $285 including shipping for my 2002 SEL wheels off of Ebay. Brand new, still in the box from Ford.
