Default 18" rim question

Ok first off i have to say that i have done a search, so please dont tell me to do a search... I am looking to get some 18"s for my 02WRX and i have read all of the post about offsets and rim widths, my problem is that i can not find any wheels that have 47 to 50 off set (this is the offset that this site says is required for an 18x7.5 rim) can someone please help me find a few styles of rim that will fit and not cause any problems... Please and thank you.... Greg

You can try Prodrive. They make Subaru specific wheels.

I'm in the same boat on the 18"'s . I've been looking at ADR, don't know that much about them, but they look good and are cheap. Maybe a bit heavy though. I looked at some Konigs that will fit too. Try looking at enkei mr2's as well. Let me know what you think.

rotas make 18x7.5 with +48... plus check edge racing, they have some pretty killer deals. those are the two i would recommend if you're on a budget. www.edgeracing.com

if you can afford a little more, go prodrive. my 18" pff7s are 18x8 with a +51 offset. couldn't be happier.
