I don't think a hub swap is a de regur modification. Sure, if you want to or you have a compelling reason you can, but there are plenty of tbird/mark wheels available, as noted by Brad's entire business. I think you can still jump on tirerack or americastires and find a pretty wide selection too.
Keeping it stock is one less variable you have to deal with when you sell the car.
For me, this was just an unfortunate incident, and I learned my lesson. I have one wrecked wheel and one which is fixable. I'll get that fixed and have a spare.
I also happen to have my original set of wheels and another set of 17s for flexibility, so, for me, a hub swap doesn't make sense.
On topic, Brad is taking care of me. Thanks!
