HAHAHA M-05's 19x8.5 for $3200.

You guys are sooooooooooo desperate :lol:

I got a quote on those Exact wheels (5wheels with Hyper Silver Finish) for $1800 back in Feb 2002. Too bad I didnt have the cash.

Oh well..good luck as they are pimp wheels! I'd buy 5 if I were you!!! if you bend one and you gotta buy a spare YOU ARE SCREWED

I've been calling around too and the wheels are obtainable because they are not discontinued in Japan. The distributor to the U.S., AKT, so they have been hard to get.

bigdaddy do you mind telling me where you inquired the wheels from??? thanks.
I called ALL the North American Distrubutors and that SoCal Chinese Trading company from Yahoo Stores that sells all the accessories/ wheels for the IS300 (the name slips me right now) They all gave me very similar stories about importing the wheels but the price would be higher EVEN if we could locate the IS300 offset. I cant justify a set of $1800 wheels selling for $3200.

The set of 19x8's that I eventually found were a 38mm offset :( so I passed on it back in March.

Good Luck guys... those wheels are pimp.
