Looking for 04 or 05 take off wheels

I bought an '05 regular cab F150 this past Saturday. I got the XL level which includes the ugly grey steel wheels.
Does anybody have, or know where I can get, a set of takes offs that look better than what I have? I ma not really particular about which OEM Ford wheels I might be able to find. Anything will look better than what I have.

17 inch wheels - 6 lug.
Nothing prior to 2004 will fit - they were 5 lug wheels.

Thanks!
Brian

Congrats on the new truck. You didn't tell the better half that it was my idea did you? I want to come back to Alabama without worring about a contract being put out on me. LOL.

Sorry for not being any help with the rims, check with the bone yards down there and see if they got in a totaled.

Post some pic's so we can see it.

Congrats again.

Jim

Thanks Jim. The wife was actually in favor of the purchase!
I kept the 2000. I can't stand the thought of getting rid of it.
I found quite a few sets of take-offs on e-bay. Probably get somethign from there.
I'll post pics when I get it all dolled up.

Hopefully I have found some. Southern Comfort Conversions is just a few miles from my house. I called them to ask about take-offs. They refered me to a place I pass every day that resells some of their take-offs.
I plan to check into them tomorrow.

Take offs

I have a 04 expedition but I also have a 89 Chevy 4X4 1500. Last week i bought a set of 17" Avalanche Alloy OEM take offs from Dave at that place. I was going to suggest it but you figured it out already. 450 for the set with Goodyear tires. I was very happy with my purchase I hope you have good luck as well.

I was out of town Wed/Thurs so my wife drove the new truck down and picked them up for me.
They are nice looking wheels.

$350 for the set.

Heck, that's about the same (or less) than a decent set of tires alone.
They are brand new take-offs. Still have the paper stickers on the wheels.
