Because I'm busy (and lazy :iconbiggrin:) to search around and put together a thread, I figured I'd copy KillJoy's idea of having next gen owners share their experiences with any aftermarket wheel they have purchased and installed on their X. This way we can have a very informal thread.
So, having said that, if you have purchased aftermarket wheels and have them installed, or even had them installed in the past, but decided to get rid of them, please share your experience here. I have set up a similar template as KillJoy's Tire template/questionnaire.
5. Did you need a spacer? If so, what model? Where did you buy it?
6. Where did you purchase the wheels?
7. Price per wheel?
Please try to keep this thread on track as much as possible. I realize there will be some questions from others, myself included, about various wheels. However, please try not to go off topic. Thank you in advance for your help and cooperation!

Backspacing unknown, however, I will haul my lazy a$$ out there and measure on request.

shinallb, I found those a couple of places (online) when I was browsing; did you see the all matte black ones that AR shows on their website (link)? It's listed as series 3919 and comes up under their Application Guide for all years back to '05. I think they call it 'teflon coated'.
I'm not quite ready to pull the trigger on new wheels/tires yet, so I didn't do quite as much digging as might be warranted; but it seems like the 3919s could be a good option as well - assuming they're hub centric or have spacers available to make them so.
1. Brand: MB
2. Model: Predator-Chrome
3. Size 16x8
4. Backspacing: Unknown
5. Spacer needed: None
6. America's tire Co.
7: Price per wheel: 146.25 paid, Normally 195
So you can see how it sits:
