Default Where can I buy 5zigen wheels?

Well the guy who was going to sell me his Tarmac 3s decided never to return my messages so I'm now looking for wheels again. I really like the 5zigen FNOR1C but can't find anywhere that sells them. Anyone know? I'm looking for an 18x8 wheel.

Also who here has the best price on Rotas?

http://www.machiii.net/wheels/5zigen/FN01R-C.htm - Here you go, but I only see 18 x 7.5", 18 x 8.5" & 18 x 9.5" wheels listed there so no 18 x 8.0" wheels.

I have an 05 WRX sedan, would there be rubbing issues if I went 18x8.5? Also, thanks for all the help, much appreciated guys.

Hmmm...what kind of suspension mods have you done? That might play a factor in to if you might have some rubbing issues or not.

BTW, checking the MachIII website vs Edge Racing & FastWRX it looks like MachIII is the cheaper place to buy from (and they have Free Shipping).

18x8.5"
MachIII - $272/wheel (Free Shipping)
Edge Racing - $291/wheel (not sure about shipping costs)
FastWRX - $320/wheel (not sure about shipping costs)

Is Mach 3 pretty reliable? Back to the FNOR1Cs, a guy on here is selling some 18x7.5s with tires for $875 shipped. I really wanted an 8" wide wheel but I love these wheels and it's a good price with the tires especially since there's no curb rash either. Should I go for it? They're bronze which would be great with my silver WRX.

What's the offset of those wheels? Honestly, if you don't plan on running wider than a 225 or 235 width tire anyways, then you should be fine with the 18 x 7.5" wheel. If you want to put some meat on those tires then you might want to keep looking.

Personally if I would go with an 18 I would probably want at least an 18 x 8.0". However, I would bet that even if you decided you didn't like the wheels because they are too narrow for you then you could still get a good price for them when you go to sell them. You probably also wouldn't need to worry about any rubbing issues if you went with the 18 x 7.5" wheels. Whatever you decide on though make sure to get a fresh alignment to go with your new wheels.
