Default Should Gruppe-S Bring In the Enkei RC-T4? What Colors?

Hey guys just a bit curious and looking for some some HONEST opinions. As many of you know Gruppe-S is one of the Largest Distributors of Enkei Performance Wheels on the West Coat. Such a great relationship with Enkei has given us the opportunity to release some exclusive colors and sizes.
We have the oportunity to exclusively bring in the awesome Enekei RC-T4 for the 05-08 STi. The size offerd will be 18x9 +35. Now the hard part is deciding what colors to bring in. If you had your choice of color what would you want?

Enkei RC-T4 Colors
1- White
2- Silver
3- Gold
4- Bronze
5- Metal Gray

Yeah!

Do the 18x9.5 +45's clear Brembos? I'd be in the market for a set of those in Silver.

I doubt these are super-light since they are tarmac rally wheels and have to take a lot of abuse, but stiffness is probably excellent, and they are way cooler than RPF1's.

I have RPF1 Black Edition for the 5x100 crowd
Plus the 5x114.3 bolt pattern and 18x9 +35 size make it a great fitment for the Evo as well.

I dont have weigh of the 17x9 but its in the 16-17 lbs range. As Frank A stated these are deigned for competition abuse.

I am not sure if the clear the Brembos since I have not seen the 18x9.5. Enkei USA does not have specs on tehse wheels so I am not sure.

Everyone,
Please this is not a for sale thread. This is a discussion and opinion poll on the proposed Black Version RPF1.Please do not request pricing. I dont want the moderators complaining like they did on IWSTI.
Please note that sizing and pricing have not been finalized so I cannot sell you or put a set on back order for you untill everything is official.
Thanks
Gruppe-S

Don't they make an RC-T4 in an 18x8.5 +48 5x114.3 that clears Brembos? If so, I want in Metal Grey.

Here's an awesome web site that I found with more info on the RC-T4:

http://www.irs.co.jp/oversea/products/es/T4/T4.html

If you click on the individual offset numbers in the table, you'll get a 45 degree angled view of that rim so you can judge the spoke face.

Yes they do. I own them.

My 18x8.5s weigh something like 19lbs...pretty good for a big cast wheel.

The "Time Attack" color did get played out pretty bad. Thats why Rays discontinued the color. I doubt this will get played out since I have yet to see a copy of the wheel. Im sure it will only be a matter of time before Rota copies the wheel
RCT4 pricing has not been set as of yet

Will be buying an 08 STI this summer, and love the RCT4, but would only get 17X8 in steel gray for winter if available.
