Is that $2317 a wheel or for all four? Cuz $10k for some 22" wheels is nuts. Especially when you can get some nice 3 piece 22" forgiatos or gfgs (like me) for $5k with tires.

ONE wheel. that's retail. if you get the hookup you probably get a bit discount. jdm wheels have always been expensive, and exchange rate now doesn't help. if one wants to go back to the root of jdm modding, then jdm wheels are the way to go

They look like 22's.

Why are you limited height wise? Are you concerned about tire wear or rubbing?

Oh okay..well if thats retail than it makes sense. If the JDM market is anything like the usdm than retail is usually double or more what the street price is.

i think the price you're quoting is silver, not chrome juss sayin'. I'm no boss, I'm just an enthusiast.

Henry pretty much nailed it on the head. Yup, that's the price for one wheel, and yes that is retail; moreover, the only options I ever wanted were japanese wheels for a japanese car.

As for the other options you mentioned, I've never been a fan of any WTW Corp wheels. This is just my opinion, but I think they're one of the reasons why chrome wheels have left a bad taste in people's mouths.

They are 22s. With the datasystems controller, if I lower it to even 5 (IIRC) I think the rear tire is sitting on top of the fender. I'm trying to lower the car to around that height/lower without running into complications.

I'm not too concerned about tire wear, but right now I am slightly rubbing, even if slightly dropped. I believe as a solution, I probably need to have someone fabricate some camber arms, run slight negative camber, and dial in the suspension to where I want it to sit.

Changes are definitely coming.

henry, at setting 5, my rear fender is sitting on top of the tire already - i don't think the controller will allow me to go any lower - but I want to eventually get there.
