Opinions needed - rim search

I have a pair of rims that I would like to get a match for. Here are the rims:



They are 15 by 8 inch enkei black mesh. I would like something new that could compliment them.

Here are some of the rims I thought about.

The thing is I want the matching pair to also be 15". The width could be different but I want the wheel to be the same size.

I was looking for 15x7 or 7.5 at the most.

I want them to have dish to match the rears. They don't have to be as deep but I would like at least 1.5" of dish. Chrome dish is better but I am having a hard time.

So here is the short shot list:

15" wheel
At least 1 - 1.5 dish
Chrome dish is better
Black or gunmetal or something that works
5x114.3 (4.5")
Used are fine if they are in great condition.
Fit 30mm Z32 front brakes

Here are some candidates:

Buddy Club PI QF:

Kinda on the spendy side but it is a great rim for drift and track.

Buddy Club PII

It only comes in 17" and larger. But it is the look I am going for.

SSR Professor SP1

The look but 17" & 18"

Advan RG

They have them 15x7.5 in the right lug pattern.

I will stop now and take some suggestions.

Thanks fellas!

Everyone and their mother is getting those 5-Zigens. There is a reason they are nice looking.

My friend Mike is on 5-Zigen's site with his rims. He has those in silver.

I think I might get the Kosei K1s. They are $170 a piece. 16" Grey.

They do if you get them for the Z32. But the smallest they suggest is 16 inches! Damn them!

I had them in 4 lug 16 inch. They were very nice. But when I sold them I got these to replace that void:




Just as lite. A little wider and they are mint. Illegal sticky rubber. ahhhahaha

I need something with a chrome lip. They look fly in motion.

Call tirerack, I think they still have blanks without holes. I can't see why they could not get you a set of k1s that have the spoke spacing for a z32 with the boltpattern of a s13.
