Hey there fellow Italian...!
I would contact Jon Henson @ www.driverzinc.com or email him @ [email protected] he sells the Foose line and ships overseas.

He'll have the best customer service for you and the lowest pricing as well.

Tell him musclecarjohn sent you...

No problem.

I know Jon sells Foose wheels,did he actually tell you he couldn't/doesn't carry them or did you just not see them on his site?

Hi,
Of course I'm italian,
Sorry but I don't know what Hispanic do it...
In ityaly you can't change the size of the wheels and the tires!!!
You get here a card for your car,and it write what kind of wheels and tires you can use,usually are the original...
So,in my book car I have only 14"/15",and I have to find this size for my car...
I can't change,is not legal...
Sorry,but I found so many web-side where to by this wheels,but all whit a different prize,but the brand are the same.
So here there are so many people that probably buy a lot of wheels,that why I ask you a tip!!!
I know also that there are so many sponsor,that sale this wheels,but no one write nothing about...
probably they don't have???
I found out that everybody in USA have a different wheels,and only few people have 15"wheels...
Peobably you don't have the same problem then me.
I hope I have not offended anyone,
and for this we apologize in advance!!!

THANK YOU!!!

The only one who offended anyone was Dave C.

That's interesting that you can only put the same wheel size on that the car came with originally. That's a bummer too.

Simone, are you just trying to find the least expensive wheels in 15" sizes, or are you having trouble finding the wheels you like in 15" sizes? Or both?
I don't see all of the wheels you're talking about in 15" sizes.

Re: 15" Wheels???

Thet a big problem!!!
But in Italy it work like this!!!
The state made this kind of think...
Can you immagine...In the new car if you want to change a color,you have to brink your car in this special office,than it cost Ä700.00 ($1000.00 more o less...) and tell wath kind of color you want!!!
So they'll dicide and they will tell you if you can or not,but it doesn't mean that after this money and all this problems you will get the possibility to change you car color!!!
Sorry,but in italy it work like this!!!

Hi,
I like that wheels,and I try to find a good price!!!
The best for me it'll be the American Wheels Vetor SE,but is not longer in production anymore...
But maybe somebody still have in a stock,and they can't sale to nobody!!!
So,usually they have also a good price because they are already old look!!!
And I'm ready to buy!!!

About the size,I remember thet all the wheels I like they bild in 15"...
Or not???

Re: 15" Wheels???

Re: 15" Wheels???

I think you may have a very hard time finding them in 15 inch. I don't even think they make the Nitrous grey anymore. When I bought mine 2 or 3 years ago, I got a really great deal ($100/wheel new) on my 15x7 and 15x8 because they were reportedly being discontinued.

MHT makes the wheels for Foose, and looking through their catalog I didn't really see what you're looking for.

http://www.mhtwheels.com/

If it wasn't such a pain, I would sell you mine since I like the Legends grey too, and my car is going to be a rat rod for a while longer.

Good luck!
