Default Five Spoke Wheels on a 2012 WRX?

So I know the "JDM" thing to do to a WRX is to find a nice wide, multi spoke wheel, but how many of you are running five spokes on your car? I've always loved the clean look of a five spoke and since I haven't seen many on a WRX I thought I'd ask for some inspiration. Post up pics of your 2011+ WRX on five spokes!

Yes, this is serious. Not everyone has time to sit on the internet and search for photos...

And I'm very familiar with xluben's car, but I'm not a fan of the Mach V wheels. I'd like to see what other options are out there.

And to DurtyB's point, I have started a thread in the Member's Gallery. Mods, please lock or delete this thread.

Thanks.

The man himself! I ran the 5zigens on my 09 and now my bugeye, but they look similar the the Mach V wheels.


And I don't care if you don't have time to look for photos, why is your time more valuable than mine? Is someone going to choose and buy the wheels for you as well?

Yep, those do look very similar. All the local guys say that my wheels look like Honda wheels, because they're used to seeing the 5Zigen's on Honda's

I think you meant that the Mach V wheels, which are relatively new, look similar to the 5Zigens, which have been around for years. Either way, not everyone likes the look - apparently the OP doesn't, and I think they're ugly.

Can you propose a useful search that would turn up pictures of 5-spoke wheels? And why are you posting pictures in this thread anyway? Isn't that just encouraging the OP's laziness?

It's not about laziness or who has more time than everyone else, it's just eaiser to ask people to post photos than it is to search. Not everyone who has recently joined is going to have posted pictures of their car in old threads so with that in mind I figured I'd ask. Keep in mind the title of the thread is asking for pictures of a 2012 WRX with 5 spokes. The 2011+ bodystyle has only been around for a little while and I guarantee not everyone with 5 spoke wheels has posted pictures on this site.

Thanks for posting your pictures.

Thanks for posting your pictures.
if you are talking about sedan.....

wagons have been around since 08+.

and youre right, its easier for YOU to post a new thread than it is to search. Look up which 5 spoke wheels you like, and search for that model on the forums!

Yes, I'm referring to the sedan but either way, I'd like to see any thrid gen WRX with five spokes.

And the whole reason I created this thread is because I tried doing exactly that, I found 5 spokes I liked and searched NASIOC with very little success. The only picture thread that is consistently updated is the 2011 and 2012 WRX/STI thread and it's over 400 pages long. I definitely don't have time to flip through all of those pages looking for 5 spoke wheels...
