Default 99RS with WRX and GC8 RS rims (pics)

On the first time, I posted a comparison pic of both rims side by side.....

http://www.i-club.com/forums/showthr...hreadid=150521

Now, I decided to install both and do a sample pic of my car with both types of rims.....

Any comments?? Obviously, I won't be running with mismatched rims..... the WRX rims will be my daily rims and my RS rims will be my track/solo2 rims....

Wow, never noticed how much nicer those RS's rims are compared to the WRX rims.

I wonder if they look better on WRX's too.

Robin,

Nice.. I still prefer our stock RS rims over the WRX. Now all I need is skidoo treads and I'm set!

I prefer the pre-2002 rims personally. maybe its just because I see them every day on my RS. The WRX rims just look funny on the GC8 RS, danged if I can figure out why though. Just don't like them I guess

Dunno Robin, I still think the pre-02 rims look better as well.

I have to admit though, the WRX rims look better on the GC8 then they do on the WRX... The Rex wheel arches demand 17" minimum!!!

True.....

I still like my RS rims better but the WRX rims will probably end up as track rims...... and latter on winter rims on the new car..... (if I buy a WRX) in a couple of years....

I really like the RS Rims over the WRX Rims as well.
I wish they kept the 5 spoke design for MY00, I like the 5 spoke better than my 6 spoke MY00 RS rims
