1st big problem

so... i dont post too much since i bought the stang. my ranger has pretty much become my "dependable" dd.
ANYWAY ive hit my 1st ever NEEDED (ive done a ton for the heck of it)
my rim rusted through and leaks. 2 rust holes. so im in the market for a stock ranger rim for cheap, or im trying to find 4 cragars .
my tire guy said i could do one rim for now, but i inevitably need 4 rims....
its 80$ to mount and balance my old tires on new rims.

anyway, anyone ever have this problem?

Walmart does a pretty good job at balancing...and you can watch them to make sure they dont **** something up...they cost like $5 to mount, $2.50 for a new valve stem, and less than $5 to balance...Only problem Ive really had with them is they wont air it up to 40psi and drop it back down unless you tell them specifically...Wish the asian place I go to was a chain...they are amazing....they fixxed the terrible balancing job a mexican shop did when I got new tires from them.
