Default cracked rim...fml

So, yesterday, I noticed I had a flat. Went in to get it replaced (gotta love warranties). Today I head out to my nephew's birthday party, only to find a flat, on the brand new tire. Keep in mind, I havent even driven 10 miles on this thing. I head back to discount tire, and they begin to look at everything. No damage to the tire, no nails, etc, etc. Upon submerging the rim in the dunk tank, they discover a crack on the inside lip of the rim...fml. thankfully, I have a good spare, so they threw that on for me. Car currently has black motegi mr116s on it. Ive been wanting all white wheels. I was going to powdercoat these, but with this crack, ive decided on new wheels. Before anyone asks, im opting not to just order 1 new mr116 becuase the other 3 rims are curb rashed and beat up (bought like that).

Now, onto the new shoes...
All my tires are new (thank god), so I will be staying with 18x8. I do not want to order rims and have to have them coated, so they need to come white from the factory. Ive been searching and looking around, and, go fogure, there arent a lot of options (short of spending $240+ per wheel). With that being said, is anyone currently running all white wheels that they'd recommend? Ive looked on tire rack and google and what not, so if anyone even has a recommended site, that'd be helpful. Just want some options. Ill he ordering the new wheels Tuesday. Thanks y'all.

End rant

Those look sick as fuck. Discount tire has drag wheels, and they price match, so ill just show them that in Monday. @acousticdefbot; where in Texas are you?
@mituc; those OZs are out of my price range, but I am considering those sparcos next to them. They are 20.3 lbs

Sparco is a good brand as well. They are just a little more expensive than the Drags but are about 1kg lighter and believe me that's a lot.

They are less than $100 difference as well. The guy at discount tire will be calling monday about some other motegi wheels as well. The mr122 & mr126 iirc. It's going to come down to price and availability.

ended up ordering a set of avid wheels. (avid 21) similar to the sparco wheel, but much cheaper.
