Subaru Stars Need Opinion On Rims

Volk Racing TE37 - Mercury Silver/Black/Bronze


Wed Sports SA90 - Bronze


Gram Light 57PRO - Gunmetal


BTW, I drive a 2004 WRB STI. It's a really hard choice. Also, if anyone have these rims on their WRX, please host the picture. Thank You!

I chose the bronze TE37s, but if you are looking at price the Gram lights are fairly cheaper then the TE37s and you might also want to check out the gold Gram lights.

I'm not sure how much they go for. I'll have to look into that and get back to you. It should be cheaper the the volks.

so the question seems to be between a 5, 6, or 7 spoke rim with similar styling. i personally like 5, 6, and 7 spoke rims pretty much equally, but for this style, i like the te-37 and 57pro. for 7-spoke rims i'd look at prodrive pff7 (assuming you are getting 18s) like on the sti wr1. gold 57pro's are nice with your car, but not gold te37. spokes are too bulky for gold. i would say get either SILVER or BRONZE TE-37 or GUNMETAL 57PRO. but my tastes are more subtle and clean. perhaps too subtle, ie. i would never get gold wheels for my car. but i think they look awesome on other peoples cars when done right.

dude, hard choice. The TE-37 are my favorite wheel - so simple, but the wedsport are so hot and not many people have them. I think weight would be my deciding factor. let us know what you choose.

As of right now I'm leaning toward the 57pro because of the deep dish look. Also, the weds are growing on me, plus it's rare around here.

I used to have volk le37ts on my Prelude before I got the STI. So I want something different.

I'll keep everyone updated. Thanks for all the comments guys.

the pattern for the 57s r too similar to the volks, if u really want something different might as well go with Wed, but still like the volks, simply for quality

5 & 6 spokes are not the same. plus the 57pro has a more deep dish look.
