Default Recommended JDM Wheel Importers?

I'm trying to see if I can track down a set of Advan RG's in a very specific size and finish. RG's are no longer in production and extremely hard to come by. I'm looking to enlist some help but I'm not quite sure who to call. I'm wondering if anyone has done or considered doing the same thing as me and has recommendations on who to call? I know there are JDM wheel importers out there, but I'm looking for the best. I've already contacted Makin and I'm waiting to hear back. I'm not sure they'll be able to help me though.

Any suggests and/or website links would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

it might help to tell us what "specific size and finish" you are after. if the wheel is discontinued, it will be very hard to be picky about colors. you might needs to have them coated.

That being said, RG's are not very hard to come by.

The sizing I'm interested in is 17x9.5 +15 in gold.

The wheels you speak of were only offered in 5x114 (not your car). You didn't search very hard because Evasive Motorsports is still offering them on their website, in that particular size/color combo.

That being said, if you find some, have fun trying to get them to fit with anything more than a 225. Flush only looks good low, so if you aren't tucking tire, it wont look right.

You have a link to where they're posted on Evasive's website? All I see on there are the RG-II's and RG-D's.

I'm doing a 5x114 conversion, so that's not a concern.

the RGII is the same wheel as the RG, only every wheel in the line-up has the GTR face instead of only GTR fitments.

I would strongly suggest looking into an et20-30 (it will keep the flush without being too retarded). When you are spending that much on wheels, its nice to be able to run a decent size tire.
