They look like they should be on a VW to me. lol I would wait for the other ones.

But then again i would just go for the cheaper ones.

I love your car btw.

Based on the lip, I am guessing the offset is pretty aggressive? Will that fit your car?

I think you need some 18' O.Z Ultraleggeras. Look great on anything and they are extremely light for maximum performance

Work emotions are nice but heavy, more unsprung weight which will decrease your acceleration. Only works I would get would be the ones that use their new WFT tech.

Default Nice wheels!

The ones you were thinking about getting look so nice on that blue WRX of yours. I'm thinking about getting wheels similar to that but i'm not sure if they would look good on a white Impreza. So i'm indecisive.

The OZs on the bugeye are 18x9.5. Those are the widest the wheel comes in.

I think new wheels are a win, wheels on back order are ugly as all hell.
