Weight and strength are more important than the looks to me. Do you have those specs?

Cool

Hmm.. the width and offset are great, but the rim seems a bit too "sharp" IMHO. Like someone mentioned, a darker color may take away some of that sharpness just enough. And what's with the centercap? haha.

It may look pretty dope with a low ride height, but you'll have to try it out.

Honestly, I think I did see a wheel like that in a VIP magazine.. apparently, this one is a copy of that other one... this other one I am referring to is a *bit* more refined.

Try it out! And post pics! hah!

GOod luck. :thumbup:

Looks a bit too OEM to me.

Bringing this thread from the grave. I like the look of those, but I'm searching for a pic of a STi or WRX with them. I may be interested in the 40mm offset to get the tires further out. I don't like how my tires sit so deep in the wheel well with the 17" Rota SDRs I have now.
