Best store for wheel shopping

Does anyone know a good store in New York or Michigan that has a good stock of wheels on display? I am interested in a few options for the spring but I need to see them in person...pics don't it for me when I am considering that kind if coin.

The real debate is colour. I am leaning towards hyperblack or anthracite colored wheels but not sure how they will look on sepang.

Hope you find a good shop.
.....I never had any luck finding anything that way.

You won't find specialized wheels like Apex in retail outlets.

All I could find at local retail outlets around here was bling for Slabs and Donks which generally doesn't look too good on Bimmers.

Yeah, spent a lot of time online tonight looking. Not much choice out there. Too bad I missed SEMA....that would have been a great opportunity to see most of them.

whats your budget? size? there are tons of options that you may not be aware about, but they may be more pricey than your typical replica wheel

Yeah, I know there are lots out there. I do like the Morr wheels that you recommended but they are out of my budget. I am looking at under $1,500 for sure for now. I do like the Apex EC-7s and have been checking out the Sportline CS16s at **********s (still have a CyberMonday deal on right now). Not a fan of the 8's from Apex or anything that has that recessed lug nut area look (I like a smoother transition).

Debating about puling the plug for the ********** deal now or doing more research and waiting till spring to make a purchase. I still have to pick up exhaust in the spring as well so worrying about the budget as well.

look into forgestar f14 in hyperblack. they are lightweight quality wheels for a fair price.
