Well let me know if you find anything as good. Everything I found so far doesn't fit right, is too big or is just ugly....

It looks like maybe you can order these wheels directly from Alufelgen??

They are out of stock worldwide so if you place the order there they will refer you to this thread to get the group buy going.

Interesting, especially since their only fine print on their site says that they charge 50% up-front and the other 50% when the wheels are ready (i.e., approx. 90 days after order). Anyway, I really really really want these wheels and it makes 0 sense to me that Alufelgen wouldn't continue producing them for retailer stock. I mentioned it before, but it really has me worried about the possibility of needed a replacement in the future and not being able to get one. At least with most aftermarket wheels, you can count on several retailers having them and therefore the possibility of being able to obtain a spare wheels is much higher.

Well unfortunately for alufelgen, as they keep waiting for a group buy to fill up, I keep spying those new apex aero 7's and thinking it may be a more advantageous offer.... And I'll get them in Feb.

Unless aluFelgen can get it into gear and produce some wheels....

are the new wheels' spokes going to go all the way to the lip like the sport gunmetal picture.

The ti gunmetal wheels are a slightly different design; the spoke stops at the lip/doesn't got all the way to the edge like the sport gmtl...
