they're round, made of metal, you mount tires to them, and they're held on the car with bolts.

beyond that, ftl.

Oh hell no. But it is your decision. Konig's for some reason look hideous on subies. Get something else.

they are heavy, and i dont think they'd be a good choice. You can find better rims that'll flow more than those for about the same price if thats a problem wit you.

in a word, gross..


Konigs are definitely not something you wanna rock on a subaru. If you're on a budget, look for a used set there are good deals or check out subydude and find a decent set of rotas.

Again, thanks for the response guys...very helpful. Im kinda liking these also from 5Zigen. i think it has more of the "racing" look for our cars.

it would be in hyper black.

Personally, I think black wheels on WRB is awful. Bronze is sweet, and a bit different.....

i like the black because i will be putting on a CF hood so it would match pretty nicely.

I agree with Cole that black wheels on Rally Blue look kind of weird... but maybe if you're going with a CF hood it could work. Gold usually looks great on WRB, I say go with that. I heard Konig's aren't the best quality (soft) and have heard they look ricey, but its all personal preference. Just watch out for potholes so you don't bend them quickly. For the money, I also went a bit cheaper since I'm not a millionaire, and I picked up a set of Motegi's which have been great so far. I even took em off road a little and they've stayed strong so far in rutty Philadelphia. I don't think they're the best quality either, so out of curiosity does anyone know how Motegi compares to Konig or Kuma? I'm sure about the same...

No offense, but I don't really like those wheels either. Check out subydude's website. There are two 5 spoke rims, the slipstream andddd this other one that I can't think of that looks like an advan 5 spoke.

Also, why the carbon hood? our hoods are ridiculously light as it is. What mods do you have done to your car now? Maybe we could help you spend your money a little more wisely, and get a lot more out of it performance/result wise.
