Need Wheel ideas

Hai guiz, I need some help on new wheel ideas, I've been surfing around the net for a few weeks for something to catch my eye but nothing really pops out at me. I came across CCW LM20's, but alot of ppl said they prefer the wheels I have on my car NOW.

After more thinking I wouldnt mind going with a gold + polished lip combo.
But all I can think of are volks and BBS, and I dont think I could afford either one of those.

So are there any other model wheels out there with gold + polished lip?
I'm open to other ideas as well, preferably they would need to come in 18x8.5 or 18x9 with a +30 to +35 offset.

To be specific I could probably afford $450-$500 a wheel MAX.
I know budget helps with alot of threads like these..

So suggestions please. Thanks

hey listen man, there is a company that just recently made a pretty big impression with the 350z and G35 guys. It's a Volk TE replica, but Varsstoen has done it better than anyone else out there. It's a cheaper alternative that looks just as good as authentic. Here's the wheels I'm talking about and they cost roughly 1k for full set !
I'm picking up a set in a few months to use during winter, I think they look awesome.

^ VS'XX's are like 4 grand a set in 19' sizes, one of the best wheels of all time though, I was considering a set in black chrome and polished for my car before.

The Varrstoen go for around $1000 BRAND NEW, and you can have them powdercoated to your color preference as well. Coach, here's the weight for these specs

19x9.5 +22 (weight 26.2lbs)
19x10.5 +22 (weight 28.4lbs)

My thoughts exactly, decent sizing in 18's I'd totally run them as track wheels on an S chassis.
