Default Need 17x7.5 wheels that fit the STi

Need some wheel recommendations for the STi please. Here is what I am looking for:

1. 17x7.5 with up to 48 offset
2. Light weight - up to 17lbs, prefer forged
3. Up to $300/piece + about $50 for shipping
4. Must clear Brembo brakes without the use of spacers
5. Must be in stock - I don't want to wait 3 months
6. Not a ROTA wheel

I don't hate the Rotas, but just don't trust their low weight vs. strength and low price combination as the appropriate wheel for motorsports. Thanks for asking.

No prob. Just have lots of experience with the Rotas. I have run Subzeros on 12 plus track days at Road Atlanta. And I know that Gary Sheehan runs Subzeros in the race series he runs in. He runs in the USTCC and to my knowledge hasn't had an issue.

I would hate for you to spend lots of money on a 'race' wheel when the Rotas have been fine for lots of people. Just a suggestion. I'm a race car driver, so I try to save myself and everyone I come into contact with some money.

No issues with Rota Subzeros after two and a half seasons of racing. I would highly recommend them.
