Default TE 37s on STI

Someone requested this a couple of days ago and I have some pics to share. Please feel free to give opinions. I just wish that they were darker gray. I feel the car looks too much like a mustang from some angles, but it does look better in person.

They are 17*8" (44ET), but no gun metal. Closest thing is bronze. I really wish that they had anthracite though or even a grayish tone. It's tough to judge colors from a catalog. They fit very similar to a 17*7.5 Rota on a WRX (wheel protrudes ever so slightly from well..1/4")

Volk actually calls out in the catalog what wheels fit the suby brembos.

They may look really big on 15" (girls giggle) monitors. I'm sorry, but my girfriend took the pics and the camera is only 2 days old, So it's probally set on highest quality.

They sell TE37's in gunmetal. Its just tough to find. But be prepared to cough up some $$$$.

$500 a piece for 17s and $590 for 18s

MVPmotorsports sells the LE37T in gunmetal with polished lips. ONly diff frmo the TE37 is the polished lip. they also have the TE37 in black

you can custom order volks in about 30 different colors but delivery can take months

another option is to get the wheel powdercoated yourself

Wow, thanks for the info. You either have a really high pressure hose or (hopefully not) cheap knockoffs with stickers.

15lbs (didn't weigh them though) each. I had a set of 17" subzeros and they feel so much lighter than those AND the BBSs.

I think they look awesome...still one of my favorite wheels ever! And my stickers are still on mine after 3 years of daily driving (white ones on a Type R).

If you want the true anthracite color in the TE-37's you will have to wait about 4 months for them to be shipped from Japan. My brother just went through this with his RX-7. But, damn do they look good!

Hmmm. I'm not so sure I like those now that I see them on. Thanks for the pics. I have Blue too and was wondering about some Volk Gram lights but I'm not so sure now. The stock wheels have really grown on me.
