Nice. I have 215/55 Generals on 17x8's and they don't look meaty like those. I really like how that looks. I think that's a nice option over steelies.

So that means the 16" version of those must clear WRX brakes? TireRack does not list them when I search, but sometimes they are hesitant to confirm fitment on smaller than OEM sizes. This looks like a great option for WRX winter wheels. I love the look.
