Default Any 17x8's under $200 a piece?

I can't find anything but some wheels on edgeracing.com and of course BBS's that come in 17x8...why is this such an unpopular size for Rota's etc...?

Since I have an 06 TR, i'd like to upgrade to a 17x8 wheel, rather than just a 17x7.5, i'd of course like to match the STI....I don't want to go 18 because the tires are as low profile as I care to have already...

I'm not sure what the bolt pattern is on the 06 TR, but I have a set of glossblack/polished lip 5Zigen fn01r-c's that literally have less then 3k miles on them leftover from my old car for sale. They look brand new with absolutely zero flaws. Bolt pattern is 5x114.3, offset +35mm. I'll let them go with just the rims for 650+shipping. They currently have 245/40-17 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 rubber on them. If you want rims+tires I'll do 1300 + shipping. Please PM me if you are interested.

I just don't know why I can't have Rota Formels or something in 17x8... I want gold too

I love those Enkei meshes on Edgeracing, but damn they are 17x7?!?!? what the heck is that about?!

I have these wheels and I love 'em. I'm pretty sure you'll like a lot. Especially since they offer an 8" width

Those are pretty decent...

I'll probably just end up getting those generic multispoke Rotas like the Geforce or Tarmac 3 or Rev's or whatever...though I don't want them...i REALLY want a mesh badly...

I think Formels are the only compromise I can live with...pricewise and looks-wise...though really I'd like an STI footprint

Rota Torques are copies of the Work Emotion CR Kai... which is not that much more expensive.

Raze makes some really cheap 17x8 6 spoke rims. They have been quoted at 18lbs, so fairly light and a polished lip. I think Ravsport or something sells them for $699 shipped.

Vendors name here is Ravspec. Tell him Alex told you about the Raze rims. I'm sure he will help you out. I have them on my car and I love them!

The same wheels are also at Edgeracing.com, but they list the weight at 20.5 lbs. for the 17x8. They are also much cheaper there, $134 per wheel in gold or gunmetal.

And shouldn't this be in the Tire & Wheel forum?
