Default Rim Dilemma

Hey all,

Trying to buy rims for my summer tires...18".

Dealership is trying to make it sound like if I dont buy OEM rims then there's a chance they will void the warranty if anything goes wrong... problem is there's only like 3 rims to choose from and they're hellllla expensive.

so.... what to do?

word is BBS's market is primarily the audi, vw & porsches... so I'm guessing thats the route to take, but figure i should buy them in town instead of online (sizing, etc)...because either way dunno if I can take them to audi to install...or that i'd even want to anyway but dont know where to go in this city! ... man i wish i was still in toronto

thoughts & opinion welcome... PLEASE!

Well.. they're not going to warranty something you don't buy from them of course but having non-OEM wheels on your car doesn't void your warranty. That said, I've had good luck buying from Concept 1 if you want an actual shop in town. I've mostly bought wheels and tires online for the best deals though. I've had good experiences with Tirerack and 1010tires.
