If you like it, I love it. Are you going to leave that wheel gap like it is? Just wondering!

The new wheels he posted are the AME wheels I believe.

-sorry 45, but i can fit 50 with the setup i have now. it would look nice and all but i like the gearing with this size.
-they are the AME FS-01; similair spoke character to the bbs you see on the sti but with a split 5 spoke arrangement.

there isnt much wheel gap as it is, its not low but the wheel/tire setup fills the fenders.

do you know of any better looking wheels in a split 5 spoke arrangement? id like to stick with that style but im not dead set on these particular ones

hyper silver is what it is called, the bbs's i photoshopped to look like the AME but they turned out dull. hyper silver is actually pretty bright

ame's look terrible, i think those are for baller wannabe types. it doesnt go at all with your sportier looking car. if i were you i would get some healthy looking 17's with good tires. enkei rpf1's or rota boosts in gold would look amazing on your car, unless you can shell out for speedlines or volks
