And apologies for the crap iPhone pictures

Looks good! I may do bronze on mine. Where are you in Detroit? I lived Metro Detroit (mostly the Novi area) for about 6yrs.

What size spacers would bring the wheels out nice?? I am used to the VW world and the whole hellaflush fad that just never really appealed to me but I would really like to bring the wheels out a little to get rid of that sunken in feeling

Also, what is the correct thread pitch for the lugs? 12x1.25 or 12x1.5??

Just my opinion, but I would pass on the wheel spacers. Keep function over looks. Your stock studs are too short to safely use spacers and if your spacers come with extended studs than that creates another area of movement between the spacer and wheel. I would skip the downgrade. I'm not an expert though... Just passing on what I have taken from NASIOC. Your wheels look good by the why.

Yeah just the factory center caps you can get from Subaru. Much cheaper on eBay though just make sure you aren't ordering any knock offs. I like your painted side badges.... I actually did mine this afternoon.

Some one please for the love of god paint the stock 2011+ wrx wheels silver or hyper silver, I need to see this done. I hate dark wheels on anything other than red. I promised I would never paint my wheels again but the ugly stock color makes your wheels look dirty 24/7, and it blends with DGM, makes it look like I tried to match the paint color or somthing - not a fan.

I looked through this whole thing (pretty much lol) and I dont see any nice silver colors. A lot of gold and black/gunmetal but has anyone done a brilliant silver or anything?

I have a set of 07 WRX enkei wheels I want to do in bright silver so I will have pics by spring.
