Question where is the cheapest place to buy Advan RG's?

I'm looking to get the RG's in white 17x7.5 with +48mm offset. Who could point me in the right direction?

Also, does CTCmotorsports still exist? They had them for like 351 a piece but their site is down, and I dont have thier number.

aiite who's got the hook?

Thumbs up

Oh yea, but they're a little pricy. They're 560 a rim. That's 2240 for the set. i'm thinking at least less than 2k. CTC had them for just over 1400. thanks though nate

Mach III buys their rims from BOZZ so buying direct would be better.

get it directly from japan, get a options or carboy mag and look for the ads, i forgot which one but they ship worldwide. Sure you'll have to pay shipping but if u order the tires(super cheap in japan, even the s02s), you'll still save compared to buying it here. they even mark down the invoice so u won't have to pay too much duty. get it now while the yen is hovering @125yen = $1. my friend saved $800 buying a set of volks couple years ago when the yen was @138 =$1.

Hey alex, the only reason i reccommended mach iii is because i remember calling them about 17" TE-37's and they told me that they couldnt give me a good price on them something like $460 OTD each.

So I call the their distributor which is ASR in daly city, and guess what they told me "best deal, cash" $520 a piece. HAHA (it cost more to buy directly, haha).

what a joke, so i just suggested that since they do the best they can.

Im sure Bozz will be cheaper.

let us know bongman.

Either way, BOZZ and MACH III are business-buddies, so it dosn't really matter where to buy them from. Call both.

BTW, what is the address to the new MACH III location?

CTC IS STILL AROUND! I have been to their shop many times. They are currently in the process of moving into a better location and they will be down for a couple of weeks. We went over there today. Just give 'em time.
