Yeah, I think they're the same. Mach V sell's the D-Force wheels in BMW fitment, and a visually identical wheel they call the "Mach V Awesome" in the Subaru fitment.

They're actually dual drilled for 5x100 and 5x114, so they'll fit an STI or WRX. They only offer 17x9" at the moment, but are supposedly going to start selling 18x9.5" soon. Here are some of the 17x9" silver ones on a white 08 STI:









Here's a couple shots of them on my WRX:







I think they're a pretty nice wheel. The look is kind of plain and somewhat Honda-ish look (5Zigen, anyone?), but the price vs. weight vs. width is just about as good as anything out there. I'm very happy with the ones I have. Mine are on 255/40R17 Star Specs. Those 18's look nice.

It is a nice wheel, I liked what they looked like on my car. But I think the 17's are too small for GR, but that might be just me. What do you think?

I agree. 18x9.5" or 18x10" look better. But I'm drawn to the weight of the 17's. Even when the 18's come out I will probably stick to 17's to save a couple pounds per corner. I think 255's are probably wide enough for me. I could even go to 265's if I wanted.

Lets bump this thread.

About -3.5 deg of camber and a little toe out for autox.

Might need a slight pull to fit under the stock Subaru fenders.

Looks good. But that is a lot of extra weight and rolling resistance. Hope you are making more then 300whp.

not my car, came across it. but i am a huge fan of it.

i'm not big on the stanced, stretched, hellaflush. I think they look good, but it seems like form>function. and i like the meaty tire function, but its harder to have a mean stance with them. this kinda combines the two!
