Same here, one of my favorite wheels are American Racing AR226's. The sawblade rims. I'm willing to drive 3 hours to buy the right set if I can find them. Or pay for cross country shipping to get them here.

Maybe some even some chrome KMC's.

The original Enkie directional sawblades were the hot ticket way back when. I like them more than any of the newer versions because the machined face was much more squared off and pronounced. Just made for more crisp and defined look to the rim, plus they were smooth lip not stepped.

I had an '89 Mitsubishi Mighty Max with a set of them in 15 x 8.5 with a steep negative offset and heavy stretched 195/50-15 Fulda's to get that perfect poked look of the late 80's.

These Stance guys today have no idea that they weren't the first to pioneer stretched tires, so many old mini's back then ran 15x10 with 195/50-15 tires. I had to settle for the 8.5 due to living in a rural area with too many rough roads, would have popped beads all the time if I hadn't stepped it down.
