I agree. They made it a tad too ricey. I prefer the stock front end.

those 5A rims are pricey, $1560 for a set? A set of Enkeii that look nice in black would be around $1200 something.

I am thinking about getting a set of TE37, which is really sick and really pricey.

Volk wheels are pricey but really nice, but I wouldn't doubt that they are very durable, some drift cars have been using the titanium ones and others have been using the open market ones, nice choice but you should invest in some sticky tires with them.

I am also looking for some other brand like advan racing VARRSTOEN that has similar outlook, cuz TE37 are too pricey. I ran over brands like BBS and enkei and did not see anything i like. I just like the 6-spoke look of TE37. But it is kinda hard to find a similar rim.
Do you have any suggestion.

Hmm. It would be better to post that question here:http://www.ft86club.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=24
I'm not very qualified to answer that its a huge aftermarket now so it won't be hard, but I would do engine mods and what not first because bigger rims and stickier and bigger tires, from reviews I have seen, tend to exacerbate the torque dip and power issue.

Hello I recommend staying away form Varrstoen (just my opinion). If you like the 6 spoke wheel design check out the Gram Lights 57d. They're cheaper than the TE37, but much better quality than the Varrstoen. Good luck

Hah thanks. I'v already order a set of Rota Grids. Varrstoens are great, but Rota Grids look exactly the same as TE37. And there are with high quality.
