I like those.
I was so close to selling my stock 16s and buying those, but then I found some 06/07 WRX takeoffs on Craigslist...
Please post up some pictures of those wheels when you get them!

Finally some snow, went and tested those Blizzaks and they were great! First time for me on winter tires, used all seasons previously and I will have to say I am sold on it. Absolutely amazing and even good with some deeper snow, can't wait for more haha. Excuse the crappy cellphone pics...

Is there a one size fits all that you guys bought these from? I have seen the DIY thread around here and loved the idea. Just wondering if there is a place to purchase.

I am putting off enjoying my new coils until winter blows over. Just thinking ahead to next year. Don't really want to take off suspension once a year if it is feasible not to.

I had my mom make mine, lol. Worked like a charm.

These winter photos are starting to get good! It was snowing on the way home tonight. Didn't stick though. Not much fun on the freeway in traffic either.

I jumped on the Altimax Arctic trend for this winter after reading good reviews and getting cash back plus the rebate tire rack had going on. They look pretty beastly compared to the Blizzak's I've run before.

Ordered the tire/wheel package from Tire Rack and got it 2 days later.
I like how these don't look any more tucked than the stock 17's. Way beefier than my old '09 Legacy's 17" rims I threw on the current WRX last spring before I sold that car.

Nice, I almost got the same exact package but I'd like to get some 18's for summer.

I think this is my favorite off-the-shelf winter wheel/tire combo for the newer cars. Looks great.

No snow here yet but a test fit of my wheels to make sure they fit over my Wilwoods. They fit! Now just to get some rubber.

I used Ichiba for both. Products are great and no issues to date, but their customer service was HORRIBLE. On their first try they sent me the wrong size studs & it took ages to clarify what the issue was on the phone before they finally admitted they sent the wrong thing. PITA!!
