    All of your top 4 are fantastic quality wheels and none will steer you wrong. CCW has the advantage of having better fitment options for Supras, with their 18x10F 17x11.5R setup. BBS are fantastic but always hard to find in Supra fitment.

    That being said, if it's the GTi you're planning on getting wheels for, then all of the brands will have options for your fitment. Personally, I like that Volks/Rays have newer, more modern designs, but if you want that classic look, BBS is always the way to go on a Vdub.

    And never buy knockoffs. Wheels are safety devices and I have seen too many wheels crack off at track days and autocrosses to ever recommend knockoffs.

    Oh yeah, in that case, we're gonna have to wait and see what fitment is like. I'm guessing the factory wheel is 19x8.5 and 19x9.5 with the 255/275 setup. We do know it's 5x112 hubs, so Japanese wheel manufacturers will take a little bit of time to catch up with Supra-specific options. Otherwise, we have das German wheel selection at launch.

    How much can we expect to pay for 18 inch TE-37s in black? $3000 before tires?

    Hopefully you don't pay anything since they're way overdone lol

    But yeah, about ~3.5k before tires.

    The wheels in the pic above are Advan GTs however.

    I really enjoy Titan7 wheels. Forged, very light, and affordable price point. It's a newer brand started by some former employees of other brands.
