My 17" bronze sparco assetto gara's should be here within the next 2-3 days. I've been waiting with tire rack since the end of march for these bad boys. I'll post a pic as soon as I can get them on the forester.

The hub IS actually round, not pentagon shaped as in the Tire Rack. The picture on TR isn't the greatest of examples of what this wheel actually is, but I like it none the less.

I was actually hoping for the pentagon shape just because its different, but oh well..

The bronze Gara's have been out of stock since March/April. Good thing they've got em in stock now, because 1 of the 4 was wrecked by UPS.

if you use tinypic.com or photobucket.com to host your pics it is easier to see them

It all depends on the profile of the tire. Keeping stock tire height on a forester was a p45. I believe imprezas are smaller. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Paint those stock calipers blue to go with the center cap and it will look nice and increase braking efficiency.

That's funny, I was looking at these about a month ago, because I'm making a list of possible wheels for the summer, and this was one of the wheels. I actually have that pictured bookmarked as reference, they look pretty nice.
*EDIT: Forgot about the new colors, anybody have gold, graphite, or black on a preferably silver 02-07?

I would love to see this on a blob eye wagon! I'm seriously considering these in the black 17 inch version. Anyone have any pics? Also, what's the general consensus on this wheel? Yay or nay?

Thanks!
