Yummy... always liked those wheels, never thought we'd be able to get them... Will you offer all the current colors they have for them?

I'm seeing more exotic OZ wheels being offered... so when will we see the OZ SuperTursimo Evolutions???

I'll be calling you around noon... (in regards to your e-mail).

Also, since you only listed 17 x 7, I'd assume that no other sizes will be available - can you just confirm that.

Good price and good looks. It's too bad they're not +53.

Those are beautiful!!! If they were 7.5" wide I would get them, no questions asked.

53 would be an improper offset with a 7" width.

How so? I thought that was the offset Subaru uses on all the 7" wide rims on the Impreza?

Aren't those the same style wheels they have stock for the Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally Edition right? Pretty lite wheels.

Exactly as I understand it too, cwhalgren. 6.5 = 55, 7 = 53, 7.5 = 48. These are 7", so 53.

48 offset should be fine. If you think that's odd go to www.prodrive-japan.com and look at the GC-07 and GC-06 where they use an offset of 43 for the Subaru versions of those wheels.

In both cases, it's a 8" wide rim.

Actually, you're right, +48 "should be fine". I'm basing my decision off of the following (very pointedly "Subaru" wheels so to speak), in addition to the hope that I'd be able to slide 4-pots under whatever I sink my money into:

Stock WRX 16x6.5 +55
xx-01 RS 16x7 +53
Prodrive P1 17x7 +52
Prodrive P7 17x7 +52
Subaru 17x7 (champagne colored ones) +53
BBS (the WRX addon ones) 17x7 +53

Although I see that the 18x7.5 P1s are +53 ... pretty odd.

But Conduit, "+53 would be an improper offset for a 7 inch wheel"... is an incorrect statement.

And well, if you want to base your $1200 purchase off of 8 inch wide Prodrive Japan model wheels (which I've never seen on a Subaru or heard about on a Subaru), that's cool by me. It's your money, not mine.

Although, offset is an issue that is often talked about here, the facts are a 17x7 wheel with a 48mm offset does work on a Subaru. The OZ Superleggera is exactly that 17x7 ET48. Many I-Clubbers have them and there have not been any problems with fitment of those wheels so, why would these be any different? They do also offer plenty of brake clearance for most upgrades.

Understood, Luke, but we're talking about a new rim here. Didn't you guys just go through an ordeal with a Forester and P7s that definitely "should have" fit fine, but didn't? I haven't suggested that other people not buy them or that they "absolutely will not work". I said I'd be much more interested as a possible buyer if they were more inline with "standard Subaru spec" and especially interested if they were checked to clear the Subaru 4-pots. I'm merely saying you won't see me lining up to be the guinea pig with that offset. It's just a personal opinion/stance.

I think they're gorgeous rims. They're clearly light, and the price is nice.

EDIT: Also, on OZ's site, the Crono Evolution 2002 Subaru applications they list are for Foresters and Legacys. Why would a company trying to sell products only list those two and not the Impreza line as well (if it worked "properly" with the Imprezas)?

Thanks for the effort dude.

However, the photochop doesn't show off the nice curves in the spokes. These are pretty beefy looking wheels!

Luke,

the OZ website shows 16.9 lbs for the 17x7 inch. Is your figure from an actual sample?

I guess the big OZ logo on the spoke is just a sticker? I'd leave it off if I had the choice.

Does it come in a standard WRX 56.1mm bore size like the Superleggera does? No messing with hub rings is such a nice bonus (No hub rings for the service shop to lose and guaranteed proper fit/centering!)

(it's too bad they went with a "universal bolt pattern look". It would have been cleaner looking with just 5 lug holes, but I guess the extra holes saves a bit of weight)

Otherwise, I like these wheels...a lot!

Check it again jblaine. They list WRX as an application and their blurb is titled:
The CRONO EVOLUTION O.Z Wheel for the 2002, Subaru, WRX.

Where are you seeing this?

I went to http://www.ozracing.com/home1.html?lang=en (Products, Wheels, Monobloc, 3rd one in top row = Crono Evolution, Application List, Subaru 2002) and it lists:

FORESTER
LEGACY
LEGACY SEDAN
LEGACY TOURING WAGON

The WRX was clearly one of the choices when you go to the fitment guide on ozwheels.com
