Default Suggestions on where to get good prices on higher end wheels?

Morning Gents. Need a little help from the wheels experts. I've never spent a great deal of money on wheels for my cars.
I usually stayed in the $150.00 price range for each wheel. (I know Im cheap.) This time around I've decided to spend about $500.00 for each wheel. I've thumbed through a few magazines I have laying around to looking for some wheels. Not a lot of luck. I love the SSR SP1, but there a tad bit over my $500.00 per wheel limit I have set for myself. I would like to get a 18x8.5 with a +35 offset. (That's what I'm running now.) Any suggestion on who has some GREAT prices on wheels such as Volk, Rays, Advans, SSR. I checked out tire rack and didnt see anything that I really liked.
Im looking for a 5-6 spoke type of wheel that is concave. I looked at the Rota Grids with the new 18x9.5 +38 off set, but I'm sure I'll have issues with that size. The wheels will be going on my 07 STi. Thanks for any help/suggestions you can provide.
Happy Holidays to you guys....

Watched the "For Sale" sections as well. You can usually get pretty good deals on wheels if you have the ability to wait for a while.

Example:

That looks to be basically what you are looking for (I know it isn't exact as you would probably need to run spacers to get down to the offset you are asking for) and it only took a few seconds of going through the For Sale section.

Thanks for the reply guys.
flukewrx, I saw them wheels and posted that I would buy them now if he weren't so far. Little purchases I dont mind taking a chance to buy, but large sums of money makes me a little nervous after see the scam section. A lot of the guys are out LARGE sums of money and I really don't want to be one of them. Not saying I will get scamed, but REALLY makes me nervous. If I were on the West coast I would jump on them wheels and tires in a heart beat. Seems like all the good deals and nice wheels are over on the West Coast.
