Is this for your car specifically or just a roller? I work in the wheel/tire industry and ship worldwide on a daily basis - anything from inexpensive wheels to two or three-piece high-end stuff.

It is going to be for my car. I sold the set of nice wheels I had while grasping for funds to finish my project, so it is sitting on stock wheels right now.

I'm looking for something inexpensive for driving on the street right now. Eventually I'll be looking for something I can throw slicks on for drag racing as well. But for now, I just need a set of wheels with some street tires. It should be seeing some road in the next month finally.

I would be willing to work out a better deal for my Ultraleggera (link above) with like new Toyos. If you are looking for something less expensive, then I can always put a few options together.

If you are looking for inexpensive wheels (new), Drag brand is an option (knockoff designs from other major brands). They clear the front calipers on a VR4 without issue. I believe mine were around $500 for all 4 IIRC. I got the DR31 in a 17x9 +28 offset. With that width and offset there is a little bit of wheel poke (they stick out past bumper/fender) but i like the aggressive look. They are lighter than stock also. They come with different color and offset options:

When i was looking at inexpensive wheels many years ago i ended up having to send at least one pair back for hitting front calipers even though the system showed they would fit a VR4. No issues with these though, been running them for about 6 years now on my daily. I got them from discount tire.

I think I'm going to be more looking at wheels from local part outs lol. Probably won't spend more than 500, so I don't wanna waste your time.
Haha understood. FWIW, I am doing a blowout on some old inventory, so I could do around $500 shipped on some new XXR or similar level wheels.
