Or just pay someone to do it if you dont feel like messing with it. You could send all the lips off to VIP Modular for high polishing for a really good price.
Does VR Wheels usually carry them in stock because I haven't seen any staggered sets on their site. The only ones they do have that is staggered is drilled both 4x100 and 4x114.3 and they want 1300 for those. But if they usually get more in stock then I can wait for a set to come up.

heres how they look

You can also just ask them to make them staggered. That's the beauty of 3 piece wheels. Just toss on wider lips or something.

I would never want to deal with the maintenance of polished RS centers....I hate polished lips enough as it is At the very least, get those parts clear powdercoated so you're not stuck polishing for hours each week.

Yeah I actually just got through emailing Rotiform and they said they would chrome dip for $600. Stripping and fully polishing is $500 from VIP Modular. Definitely doing chrome...

Yeah they get new sets in all the time. Just have to keep checking back. Or do as Rali said, just email them and ask them to make them to your specs. Sure they will cost more, but they'll look nice when you get them in.
Or you could just look at the 5x114.3 ones and do a 5x114.3 to 4x100 redrill for $250. That usually tends to be a couple hundred cheaper.
Edit: Just looked on the site and they don't really have any in stock right now (on the site at least). Just shoot them an email and see what they say.
