Any OEM wheel is going to be expensive...

(think the price includes shipping 1 wheel)

You might be better off getting an aftermarket set. I had to get a GLS with PP2 because it was all the dealers had in stock (wanted and SE). I replaced the 16" alloys with 19" black wheels and performed other upgrades to the point where I like my car better than any SE I've seen in person.

Cheers,
-Will

I actually was lookin at a set of aftermarket blk/blk 19 with chrome lip..Im just concerned about voiding the warranty on suspension and all because once you start doing some aftermarket mods sometimes they wont honor certain things related to the mod if you have problems..what size are u running tire wise and whats your width and offset..are you running the tpms on the tiresI have a black gls as well

All info here...

had 245/40/19, but they rubbed because my car is lowered 1.25".

Think it would only void a wheel/tire warranty not suspension/etc. The place I bought from installed for free and switched the monitors for free.

Dealers near me sell cars with aftermarket wheels on them all the time.

I wouldn't even waste my time with factory wheels. They are expensive and look okay, but not spectacular. As far as warranty goes, they can only deny claims if the parts you install directly cause a failure. I paid $83 a wheel for 17" Enkei J10 matte black wheels that look great. My tires were only $100 so I got the whole wheel/tire package for under $900 with tax, install, and the TMPS transfer. It rides way better/quiter than the stock alloys and tires (I had the 16" alloy rims which are now on my wife's Kia).

Dealer in my area orders all GLS with the limited 17' wheels.
That's how it should be. At least only order the GLS with the 16" alloys. Seeing the hubcap models makes me sad...
