Default Show us your aftermarket rims!

Alright I'm shopping for 17" rims.

I went through the whole picture thread on here and at Scoobytruck but I didn't see that many pictures with aftermarket rims.

Let's see some rims and while you're at list list the specs (size, brand, offset) as this can be useful for future owners!

Do my wish rims count ?


I'm old school, I grew up with Hydraulics and Dr. Dre still in NWA.

I have a black and silver 2003 Baja and I want Chrome Daytons wrapped with white walls.

hehe white walls, you can still get those! Vogue makes them I think.

White lettering would be pretty nice too.

Does anyone know if 17X7.5 + 38 would fit? The offset it throwing me off a little bit, stock is +45 and I'm pretty sure I saw people running STI wheels that are +55 .. but I'm not sure about going lower in the spectrum

Yep I know what your talking about. 155x80x13 tires stretched on 13x7 or 13x8 spoke wheels. I remember those day with my 1982 Ford ThunderBird...

Those would easily fit (assuming you are not tucking tire on coilovers?). I'm looking at some 17x8.25 +35 wrapped in 235/55/17's... But I'm staying with the stock suspension and a more rugged/meaty look.

Don't have many pics with the summer wheels. These have been posted before but you can kind of see the wheels. They are 17x7 ET48 BBS RK



and the other side.

I'll be running Megan coil overs and 225/45/17 tires. I know the tire ratio is a bit off but I already have them at home so I might as well use them until they are worn out. I just don't want the tires/wheel to rub because of the 35 offset.

HAWK296, yours is one of the few I already saw with aftermarket wheels, thumbs up!

Right now I am using the stock for the winter and am about to put on these rims with the chrome facets. I am also ready install my exhaust again because I miss the sound.

Not exactly aftermarket, but I haven't seen any others with these.

Not really aftermarket either. But a set of 2000 Impreza RS rims fully refinished by me on my 05 Baja.

Here`s my 03 Baja sporting these two wheels.

Enkei FD-05 17" with Sumitomo HTRZIII 235 series tires.



Gold painted Outback 16" snowflake beater wheels with General Grabber AT2 (parking it just before the swap)

WOW, love em!

You guys are pretty creative with OEM wheels. I've got a set of WRX wheels I use for the winter but they are getting pretty tarnished by now. I'm looking at a few models. I'm hoping to have chosen by this weekend. Keep the photos coming!

Benhart what type of wheels are those?

Just some '11 WRX wheels with some Forester takeoff tires. I've also got a set of '06 WRX wheels that I bought years ago to install that I have done nothing with except lug them around to my new houses.

Figured I would put these here even though it's an older thread for the people searching.
I wanted to move up to 17" wheels for winter so I can run LGT brakes in future so I gave away my WRX winter wheels and picked up these Enkei M52 17x7 45mm offset because they were pretty cheap. I got the black ones because they were $8 cheaper per wheel than silver. I put some Blizzak WS70s on them. I was kind of worried that they may look dumb, but they are just winter wheels. After installing them I actually like the way they look.

Those wheels are long gone, but I was running 225/55/17 on them.

Enkei T-fork 18's
They weren't my first choice, but I bought them used and the price was right.

Rims look great...I also think our Bajas have a more agressive stance and look better with the roof rails removed!
