There isnt a great deal around anymore.
Best bet is keep an eye out for what comes up secondhand.
I will be selling a set of Speedy Longchamp 17's soon if your interested.

Just get the right offset, better in the long run. I know there is more choice around for the +36 crowd but then it covers a wide range of makes.. Ford, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Nissian, etc.... There is quite a few good wheels out there in the correct offset, you just need to look.

Tempe and Quality in the same sentence? LOL!

OP, there isn't a wide range of Pre AU offset wheels. you will be limitied by budget on what wheels you can get.

http://www.wheels2u.com.au/ These guys do copies.

Ebay, Trading Post etc. Tyre/Wheel places will still get them in, not a huge range anymore.

Speedy and ANZ still make some.
