Question OT VW folks: Where to buy good/cheap wheels?

Friend of mine ordered a new 2dr Rabbit. Arrives in a few weeks. He's already looking for aftermarket. I only know Subaru stuff, and thought maybe Rota could get him some decent wheels for the price. But I can't seem to find any that do a 5x112 bolt patter that the Rabbit takes.

Any suggestions? (other than Tirerack... that's already being perused)

the 5x112 bolt pattern is the same as the audi and the 5th gen Passat -> models. Pretty easy to find decent wheels. Check out vwvortex.com there is a huge classified section.

At least I had something constructive for the OP, instead of showing my ignorance
