2000 GT, silver

I have the stock six I-spoke rims like these:


Honestly, I don't like them, and mine are pretty curb chewed with a few bent spots from the previous owner. They're still holding air and the tires are okay for now, but I definitely want to replace them before I get new tires.

I much prefer the factory 5 v-spoke machined rims like this:


Or triple five spoke like these:


Since they are both 17x 6.5 5-lug, I'm assuming they're all interchangeable. Is that correct? I'm wanting to stick with the stock size. Also, from what I've read, the bolt pattern is the same as many Ford, Dodge and other makes. Has anyone swapped out other manufacturer's rims? I know some people are running EVO rims but I really would rather not run a different size, and I don't want to use spacers or adapters. I have the stock brake setup and plan to keep it that way.

Nice! I'm planning on calling up some of the Houston junkyards soon, there are only two Eclipses in the local junkyards and both were missing the wheels by the time I got there. At least I scored an aluminum gas lid!
