I called Tire Rack and ask why is one made in Austria and the other in Germany, unfortunately they have no clue either. But did you also notice that the 18x8s (Austria) are more expensive than the 18x9s (Germany)? I mean you would think the bigger rim would cost more. Is that saying that the ones made in Austria are made better.

I hate to think that way, it's the same rims anyway, maybe because tire rack is paying more in their supplier thats why they have to charge more?
