Your NASIOC Administrator What Wheels for me?

I am looking into getting some new wheels for my Wagon. I cant find any wheels that I like, in an aggressive size and 5x100. I love the look of XD-9's and VS-XX's but they are too far out of my budget.

Can anyone suggest some wheels within my budget around (1.5k or so) that would have or could have a small lip like the XD-9's below or some other mesh wheels that look similar to the VS-XX's.

I am also open to any other recomendations on wheels that you think would look great.

Have you looked at Rotas? Wheel Dude is carrying DPTs and Grids in an "aggressive fitment" and these have a lip.

Those wheels on that bugeye are 18x10 with a low offset. Fitting something like that on your wagon is possible but would require TONS of work. Unless you are planning to do that, experiencing that much lip on your ride probably isn't happening. You could more comfortably fit some 18x9s but even then you are looking at camber, stretched tires, and less lip.

+18. They are for sale actually but out of my budget http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1758543

Anyways, I am now kinda leaning torwards a Mesh wheels. I love the BBS LM's but idk anything about how wide they go, if they are 5x100 and if they are even in my budget.

Does anyone have any pictures of the LM's on a Impreza? Even if its on a Sedan; that would help alot. Also, does Rota or any other company specialize in budget Mesh wheels? I am pretty sure there are some, I just dont know them by name.

The BBS RS-GT is a great looking wheel too but I really doubt they are in your price range.

Ehh...the Formula Mesh have a weird look to them.

I like the look of the DPTs, Grids, SVNs, and P1s but does anyone know if you can get them with a slight lip at all in like 18x9.5 or 18x10's?
