do you think i can still get it anywhere else in the market outside? because i stay in australia and the fuckin australians dont know shit about all these wheels. All they have are ugly wheels which cost like US$120 a piece.Fuckin ridiculous.
BTW, i'm not aussie. I am just a student here. [Razz]

thats going to be hard, but Austrailia is close to Japan you can get some sick rims imported from Japan. Not sure where but I thought people in Australia gets great stuff from Japan, I think the first person outside of Japan that has PowerFC was a guy from Australia. I hear Hong Kong has some sick gears too, maybe do mailorder from Hong Kong shipping would not be too expensive from Hong Kong I think.

$200 is the regular discounted price, I got it for like $150. Yes it is hard to order from Japan if you do not understand Japanese, wish I can order some stuff there too. There are a lot better rims out there than mine, mine I baught just to get rid of the wheel gaps between tires and fender. Volks and Advans for example are some light rims great for racing, 18" at 16~17lbs each when everyone else is at around 24+lbs. Imagine all that reduced weight... Wish I had a set of Volks or Advans...

It was a whole set when it first came out, could probably get them cheaper now if you shop around.

actually Enkei are cheap rims, I only got them because it looks decent and fill up my wheel well. You can even find it on www.tireracks.com
I was planning on changing rims again after I get all stuff done on my car.
