Default Which wheels should I get?

Ok, so I'm at kind of a dilemma here because I can't decide which wheels to get. First off, I have a red 95' Impreza L coupe with pos steelies right now. A friend of mine at work is offering some Motegi 16" rims with 205/50/16 Nitto tires that are barely used for about $400 all 4 (good deal). Those are a 5 spoke design, and they are silver. Another buddy of mine just bought new rims for his 07' WRX, and said he would give me his stock 17" wheels with tires that are at about 50% for $100 (pretty good deal too). Those are the stock 07' wrx rims, I think 8 spoke or something. Anyway, they both look like awesome rims for my car, but I can't decide which to go with.

I think the wrx wheels would look really good on your car. The bigger wheel will look better. That's just my opinion though.

The stock WRX wheels for $100 in a heartbeat! And if you don't want 'em, send your friend to me!

+1 for the WRX wheels - thats a steal for those & they will look better than any 16in wheel on your car!!

Ok, so I just talked to my friend tonight and he told me that he backed out of buying new rims. He told me that it was more important for him to get his trunk repainted right now (he debadged and things got messy), so he couldn't give me those rims for another month. I guess I could wait that long, but I also like those Motegi RT5's. Obviously $100 for the wrx rims is a good deal, but I have to wait a month or possibly longer, and each rim has some curb damage. Let me show you guys pics of them both.
