They're like $1300 in Japan. :cry:

We really get shafted by importers, it sucks. If you brought them back in 2 boxes (2 in each box), it should be ok, depending on your airline company's baggage rules.

but the way baggage handlers throw your shit around they would probably get damaged... :lol: maybe you should consider getting in on MrMark's container from japan deal.

otherwise, there are quite a few companies that make pretty decent replica of the Advan AVS model 5 wheels. Flik and Speedy to name two of them.

Actually, I want Kreuzer Model V's, which there are NO decent replicas of (which is exactly how I want it).

Too bad there's no way he could get TWO full sets of rims back on 1 luggage load. It's just too much volume.

Where would you recommend I look for the ADVAN model V in japan?

Autobacs? If I can get them for around $1,300 I will def pick up a set.

Thanks for the info
Don

agree with you on the kreuzers. definitely. but don't really want to spend that price on wheels, then have to add another 5-600 for tires...
