Am I limited to 13" rims in an 80 ITC rabbit?What are my choices for low buck alloys??
Used Stock? Steel? Has anyone tried American Racing Wheels?

Yes, 13x6 is your max rim size.

I've got a set of Ronal's, 13x5.5 and a set of VW Allows in 13x5.5.

It's kind of hard to find both 13x6 anymore.

I found these at a local tire shop for $349 for four, they are not x6, but it seems like no one makes 13" rims anymore.

Is the 35mm offset ok?

13" wheels in general are getting harder to find. Nobody's making them any more (except for the race mfg's, Panasport, Revolution, etc.) You can find plenty of 13x5.5 wheels that were OEM on many VW's and Japanese cars from the 80's (Honda, Toyota, etc.) 13x6 wheels are damn near impossible to find unless you go w/ the above mentioned race mfg's, but you're looking at a minimum of $650+ for a set of 4! http://Forums.ImprovedTouring.com/it/eek.gif

I had a set of 13x6 Enkei BBS knock-offs that I sold a few years back for $250. I'd gladly pay that if I could find them now!
