I've searched here and on google and have found the 5Zigen Fn01rc for about $200 each and have heard mention of a Kosei wheel but I have no model name for it. I thought they might be referring to the K-1 with the 45 degree offset but I can't find them anywhere. Are there any other options?

there isn't a 9" RPF1 that works with the MY05 :(

and the Kosei you're talking about is the K1-TS 17x9 +45mm PM [email protected] for pricing and all.

the 5zigens are not the easiest to get your hands on for some reason. (17x9+43mm)

as for cheap that is about it as of right now, there are plenty of Volks that are 9" that fit but those aren't cheap.

they aren't posted on Tire Rack b/c they are an "extreme" fitment.

as in, they fit, but if you don't know what you're doing they may rub.

this is no good for the general public.

they are available through tire rack though, and for a killer price.

only issue is the somewhat high offset for a 9" wheel, if you're on stock struts or stock style struts I think they'd be great.

What price have you seen them quoted for? Yes, I'm on stock struts!

I thought that was only an issue with bronze. I have no preference! Uuur as long as it's not black with a machined lip:eek:

the only color you'll find is that hyper black.

5zigen just sent in a truck load of them to the US everything else is backordered or someone had some hidden.

I don't think hyper black will look too pad on WRB. What does everyone else think? I like my black bbs wheels.

hyperblack looks strange although it is the new cool thing to do.
