Jegs had the best pricing I found when I was looking. But I ended up paying more to get them locally. It was easier to buy them from the shop I got my tires from, support a local business and call it a day....

I got mine from Quadratec. When I bought wheels for my pickup I went to Discount Tire and got a good deal.

Do they come with the valve to fill it up with air? or do you have to buy that.

You have to buy valve stems, lugs, and center caps separately.

Im not gonna get center caps, will it work with the stock lug nuts? im pretty sure they're the acorn style that the wheel requires.

Yes the stock lug nuts will work just fine.

And also do i really have to get new valve stems or can i just use the ones off the original wheels also? I know they're only 7 bucks but i already ordered the rims and i dont feel like paying separate shipping and handling.

I'd buy the valve stems locally or get them from some place with free shipping. Jegs was the cheapest I found.

You can get valve stems locally for next to nothing. I think that I paid about $10 for 6 (I needed 5) at O'Reilleys
I bought the short, metal ones though. Wanted then tough and out of the way of damage.

You shouldn't reuse them, it's not worth taking the chance that they will be old or cracked. In fact, wherever you go to get your tires mounted and balanced will likely have some they will sell you for a couple of bucks a piece if that's what you're after.
