Default Need 8.5" Wide wheels for STI

ok, looking for some 17" x 8.5" wheels to fit over the brembos on teh STI. I know there is a set of Enkeis out there that redRocket has, but I am looking for something different.

WHy?

Anyone have nay ideas of anything else out there? I have done a search, but have not come back with any definitive answers.

They're both actually:

Front: 17x9" et50
Rear: 17x8.5" et48

Fitting quite nicely on my STi with JIC coilovers. Toyo RA-1 255/40-17. I'm actually thinking about tossing my backup set of rota's and running these all the time.

Advan RC2s if you don't mind 18s. Gruppe-S could probably source some 17s that will fit too.
