Default need some advice on what wheels to get!

Hey guys I have a dillemma, I got some BC racing coilovers but no shoes to match it with! originally I planned on some rota shakotan's but the deal I was going to get didn't happen. I've been browsing around and the work equip 002? The ones with a star design i'm really liking, but they're way out of my budget.

Any advices on some rims that have the star design? Or maybe anything with dish that you think i'll like! The size's i'm looking at are 15x8 0 offset.

I find the diamond racing steelies pretty nice too but couldn't find any locally!

Thanks

i hate to ruin it for you but every one has diamonds. there played out in my book. let the honda boiz have them

best place to look for retro wheels is... wait for it.... wait... junk yards! in one week i found some legit shakotans, centra 7s and some legit jdm ek enkeis. there are thousands of cars in the local jys that have 4x100 lug pattern all you need is spacers if u want to make them flush with the fender

I have actually never thought of looking at junk yards... I'll get to that.

The varrstoen's are pretty nice!

every junk yard I go to scraps the sweet old school aluminum wheels or weld the steel wheels together to make stands for the cars, shit sucks so many awesome wheels. Maybe where your from they do it differently.

Yea pull a part welds some pretty sweet wheels together to get the cars off the ground but most of the cars still have the wheels on them look for the mom and pop jys they usually have older cars with retro wheels or just ask where the rim pile is
