How much does the above rim cost in 16"?

I need to find a simple-ish design 5 or 6 spoke 16" rims. (5x114.3, 40mm o/s, [not for my car]) Monoblock (single piece), silver or gun-metal/titanium-color, no split-spokes, reasonably-priced. (under cad$300 per rim preferably.)

Got any ideas?

Thanks.

They should be fairly inexpensive. The 17" 5Zig's rn around $200-220 depending where you get them from, so 16's SHOULD run around 180-190 a wheel. Check out autoimaging.com

there is a knockoff wheel, similar in design, to this wheel. it's called power racing and they are light too. check out www.wheeloptions.com . i think they sell a set of 17s with tires for about $1000. don't know if they are available in 16s though.

Thanks guys. I'm looking for rims for another car actually. I'll look into those Becketts, hopefully they really are $115-145 each according to the website.

In the meantime, know any other wheels that fit those criteria?

(p.s., anyone know why my sig pic wouldn't show up again?)

This is what I'd go for instead. It's the formula F-4 (aka power racing VS-04). They'd be lighter than those becketts and cost about $125-150 a wheel. They come in white silver and bronze.

www.blackheartpower.com sells them. You actually just missed a groupbuy they have had running for about 2 months now. They're site's under construction, but you can at least see that they sell them. There's some other places in the magazine's I've seen advertising them... just can't remember right now.

No, they are slightly different. But I think they are copies of the Advan rg??
I'm not positive, but I think it weighs about 16-17 lbs in 17x7.

I want to avoid the "tuner look" as much as possible on this car. The weight of the wheels is not that much of an issue. I'm focusing mainly on strength and decent workmanship. For example, if they are substantially cheaper, I would go for some O.Z. wheels on this car. Other possibilities are Mille Miglia, but their Spiders are too common and the Evo would be good except I don't like the bolts around the spokes.

I'm also thinking Konig Rated R's to match the TE-37's on my Lude but I don't like the 10-bolt pattern on the Konigs.

Another criteria is that I don't want covered bolts.

Any other ideas??
