Default What Rotas would look good on my car? Help me pick!

Well, I currently have STi rims painted graphite with summer tires on it. Lucky me, I curbed the bejesus out of them this weekend. My car feels like a crack addict going thru withdraw above 50mph. Luckily I have a 5th spare. However, my stock rims I use the winter, I also dented several months ago thanks to a pothole.

Now my cash from the UTEC deal never went thru, I think I just might get a new set of rims instead, retire the BBSs for winter use and Rotas for summer use. Here's pics of the car. What do you guys think?

If you have bent and ruined 2 sets of OEM rims (bbs and stock wrx) then plan to wreck the rotas as well because OEM > rota.

Grids will not fit my car. It's an 04 non-sti. 5x100 +48 to +53 offset. I've also taken the bad luck I seem to have into consideration. It's hard to live in Morgantown with a nice car. Over the 2 sets of tires I have, I've managed to have 3 nails pulled and patched over the course of 2 years.

+1 Tarmacs are so good looking, and a nice dark silver/gray color would go great on your car!

honestly, you don't deserve the stockers for killing 2 sets of wheels. buy another set of wrx stock wheels and call it a day.

Gold? I think I'd clash with silver... I dunno guys. I'd be a bonus if I kept 17x7.5 that way I'd be able to reuse my rubber (g-forces). But I've always been a big fan of 18". I will most likely stick to a dark, shiney color.

As for the consistantly negative people that I will probably hear more from, it's clear you don't know me very well. I DON'T abuse my car, and I'm sorry you have so much hate for your fellow Subaru enthusists.

And yeah, I'm everywhere now Karl, I have to drive across campus to get to engineering every day. All this construction and student traffic is killing me. Hope to see ya at the WVU vs Marshall tailgate we're having.

why not get another cheap set of oem's, especially from a GC ( ) and use them for winter? the 16 x 7 gc factory spec wheels are really attractive for a 16" wheel. also tires would be a lot cheaper...

I have. In fact, I'm still trying. I just don't want to pay out the ass for a replacement stock rim since people are either charging a lot for one, or selling all 4. I'm keeping my eye on ebay.

I guess it's the bang for the buck in me, but find a set of the 06 takeoffs people are selling for like $600 for a set of 4. 17", OEM strength, paint 'em if you don't like the color.
