18x7.5 +35 front and 18x9 +44 or 18x9 +37 for the rear. 215/35 18 front and 245/35 18 rear. (thanks paalo)

What do you guys think about the wheel and the choice of size and colour for my white mr2?

whatever you do, DONT deal with www.edgeracing.com . They might have a great deal, but they are horrible to deal with, take forever to get, and ship you damage wheels and say 'its in the 5zigen finish, not from shipping'

Mine are 17x7.5 +35 one-piece in the front. 18x9 +44 in the rear.

If I had to do it over again, I'd go +37 in the rear and roll the fenders.

As it sits, I have 255/35/18's on the back with the +44's and it NEVER rubs with stock fenders.

I've been looking for the same wheels, in the same sizes (except I plan on going with 255/35/18's). The place that I've found with the best prices thus far is.

They have the 18" x 7.5" listed for $207.00/ea.

http://www.nyxracing.com/5zigen-copse-wheel-18x75-5x1143-p-9430.html

And the 18" x 9" listed for $234.99/ea.

http://www.nyxracing.com/5zigen-copse-wheel-18x9-5x1143-p-9434.html

Both of those prices seem really good when compared to everything I've read on the board here (average price for the 18" 2pcs. is over $500/ea.), as well as what I've found elsewhere on the web. I was planning on calling them to verify that they can indeed get them for that price.

Neglected to mention in my last reply, one thing that worries me a bit is that I found this listing on a website where site-owners go to sell their sites.

http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=339724

It appears that the owner of the site sold it last month. As with any change of ownership in a business, it brings concerns (to me at least). I haven't been able to find any information anywhere else on the web with experiences (either good or bad) from people who have purchased there.

I'm curious if anyone has either purchased from them, or knows of a more well established vendor that has the Copse for anywhere near the prices they have listed.

i am a distributor for 5zigen, and i can tell you there is no way they are 235 each, other wise, i would've already had like 10 in stock.
