WTB: 17" Wheels for track square setup

Hello!

wanted to see if I can get either of these options-

1. Quantity 2 of the 17x8.5” wheels pictured below (not sure of the name, sorry!).



OR

A set of 4 of 17x8.5” wheels.

Open to the style.

Ok with not perfect cosmetic condition, as i'll paint them, but must be straight, no bends, etc.

Located in Houston, Texas

Thanks!

FYI the stock rear 986 wheels are 17x8.5". They are reasonably light and strong and can still be found for around $150 ea. Ask Woody if he has some. If money is no object you can find a lighter aftermarket set new like "Oz" for about $1600 for 4.

Car-part.com and Craigslist may work if no one here has what you’re looking for.

I found a set of 996 wheels for $300 on my local Craigslist, so there are unexpected deals out there.
