Default Which Wheels for '03 WRX

I'm trying to decide which wheels to go with for my '03 WRX Sedan (WRB). Here are my options at the moment.

1) Rota DPT - 17x8 - Hyper Black - $700/set ($175/wheel) - WheelDude - 18.0lbs
2) Enkei RPF1 - 17x8 - Black Painted - $239/wheel - Tire Rack - 15.6lbs
3) OZ Crono HT - 17x8 - Black Painted - $263/wheel - Tire Rack - 18.0lbs
4) TR Motorsport MT1 - 17x8.5 - Matte Grey - $269/wheel - Tire Rack - 17.5lbs

Or if someone knows of any of these sets that are being sold for cheaper (be it new or used) let me know.


For tires I am thinking of running 235/40/17 - Dunlop Direzza Star Specs.

I'm not a fan of the way Enkei RPF1 look, and i do like Hyper black. I guess it really depends on how you use your car
