I'd give WSTO a call. They gave me a great price, and even better customer service.


But to answer your question a little better...I think they are going for the low $3xxx range.

Why the 6 month wait? Was there problems with customs?

Oh, no worries... Dinan springs and Koni shocks/struts are on the shopping list.

No customs issues that I know of? Basically, Volk/Rays were very back-ordered on all their wheels. The VR G2's in 1er size/offset are not going to be stocked in the US, so these were a special order. I believe these are the first to hit the US.

Nice, but I think I am one of the few ones that likes the G2 with a lip more.

He was part of the first batch of the VR G2 in the US, since they were release last year. They did take a long time to get them, but things should not take that long now.

thanks.. Jack. yOurs is on its way. I need pics of your set up! Should be amazing with those AP brakes.

Anyways... I am sorry, but those pics ^ are not doing any justice to the car and the wheels!

The weight and strength of the VR G2 in 18" is just out of this world!

Julius,

I can't wait to get them.....

I'll put up some pics once they're mounted.

In the meantime have you got any pics of mine to put on this thread?
