DAMN! I always want what I can't have...

I've been rim shopping forever it seems now, and every wheel I find that I like is either too expensive or they don't come in the right bolt pattern. But oh well I guess there's nothing I can do short of saving more money or doing a 5 lug conversion. Check em out sweet huh?

It's called the Gravity Gullflame, distributed by Greddy USA, manufactured by SPsports Japan I believe.

These only come in a 5 lug.

Anyone have suggestions for rims that look nice in Gold?

Re: DAMN! I always want what I can't have...

You could do a 5-lug conversion if you really, REALLY wanted those rims....

You'd have to want them pretty bad though.

^Ha ha, yeaaaaaah, I don't want them THAT bad, but pretty bad, maybe just bad enough to whine like a little bitch but not bad enough to want to do anything about it. I think I'm going to get some Advan's anyways...

Ahh, rallye on gold. I'm buying either bronze, or gold rims if I ever jump on the band waggon and buy rims.

I'm bringing this post back from the dead, but only cuz I totally sympathize with what you mean.

Everytime I'm JUST about to actually buy rims for my car and I finally decided after looking at thousands of rims, I find out that the one I want was JUST discontinued. This happened to me twice now and it pisses me off.

The most difficult part about finding wheels....for me, is that I can find something I like, but end up saying to myself, well if I get these, I'm just really settling for them. They're not my first choice. I think I've changed my mind in rims though.
