Wheels - Where to buy?

Ok, I have been searching online for days looking for a place that sells wheels. Is there a site that i can filter by size, offset, bolt pattern, width, and color? I'm very specific with what i want, but every place i go will only list by manufacturer. I don't want to view pages and pages of wheels i don't like to see that a manufacturer doesn't even make what i'm looking for. The only place i could actually search(and it was poor, i might add) like i want to was ebay, and i'm not buying wheels on ebay.

I'm looking for 17" 5spoke black 50-55mm offset 8" wide black wheels, and have found either the ugliest things i've ever seen, or nothing. I don't want shiny, i want sort of a dull black, non-reflective. Any suggestions?

Try tirerack.com or discounttiredirect.com Also, Subydude.com had a selection of wheels that fit the (05-06 sti) svx
Also, if you find anything that you like, but it is shiny..or even the wrong color..you can always have them re-finished (that is, of course, if the price is right)

Also may want to search through manufactures individually. Rota and Enkei have some really good wheels..and their main websites are listed via style....prettymuch every size is available

I've found these:

I think they're pretty sexy, and would look pretty good bolted up to the 2tone black/red svx. With the 8.5" and 30mm offset it should support 235/45, though i'm not sure exactly what route i want to take with it.

5x114.3 16x8" 55mm offset is the factory i believe. Personally i prefer the feel and responsiveness of 17" rims though.

Fixed your post! 17's look very nice on our cars IMHO.

Subydude.com has a 17x8 double 5 spoke that is flat black.

Just be aware that Rota's "Flat Black" isn't a true flat. It's got somewhat of a satin finish to it. And the coat isn't very thick. But in my opinion, it looks better than a true flat. Has a very light sheen that makes the wheel at least noticeable.
