Sweet looking wheel.

The gunmetal ones look superb. Cast or forged? I am guessing it is a special limited production wheel only available from BBS Japan...

RE is always forged. I think they only have 22x9.5 fitment right now for a Porsche. No other fitment available at this point.

These are Shonheit CS7s made by Abe Shoukai. The specs are:

PCD 5X120
Front 20X9 ET20
Rear 20X10 ET20

Japan Retail is JPY457,800, which is roughly USD5121.25 + shipping. Some of the online stores are selling them for JPY445,200 with tires. They can probably knock some money off if you buy it without tires, but the shipping will probably cost about the same to the US with USPS Express Mail / EMS. No wonder they retail for 5900 in the US (from WheelSTO, which is a very honest and stand up shop).

yes... we do sell them but they are really expensive. We bring them in by DHL express and they are in stock in Japan.

those are some beautiful wheel, by the way.....

As for the BBS wheels, they only come in 22's right now and not available by BBS-usa as of right now.

These look nice. Much nicer than CH's to me though at a glance they look similar.

+1 rep for Julius @ WheelSTO

It sucks that there are so many nice wheels in Japan but they are so hard to get in the US. With the tanking USD to JPY exchange rate, it's getting even more expensive to get these wheels. Kudos to you guys for bringing in all the nice wheels from Abe Shokai, Advan, BBS Japan, and NEEZ.
