Default Sport Edition F2 rims

I've been looking at purchasing these rims for use in winter. Since I have a '06 wrx, I needed something that would clear the 4 pots properly and these seemed to fit the bill. For $135 CAD each, it's affordable too.

Does anybody know of the specs for this rim.... I've heard that they are not light (I know the 17" size comes in at a hefty 21lbs)... What does the 16" version weigh? (close to the 16" wrx rims??)

Are these rims as strong as the oem wrx rims ?????

Your stock 06 rims are about 20 lbs....so its not a huge difference.

You can pick up a set of 98-01 RS wheels (16.5 or 17 lbs depending on the year), 16 x7" and will clear 4-pots. Stronger and cheaper than the ones you're looking at.
