Well, there are still quite a few new wheels available. Most are only in Europe though, but companies like Tunershop sell them from the States. Plenty of 16x7.5" ET20-25 wheels, perfect for sticky rubber like 215/45 Falken RT-615's or 225/45 Hankook R-S2's. I will admit that none of them are as light or strong as your BBS' though.

Bleh. I want your ROH's, biatch. The Type-E's probably won't go on until next spring, or I'll sell 'em. It sucks, because I love them.

Probably a low ET, like around 22 or something. Check the ETK for OEM wheels and figure out the backspacing needed.
