Default Wheels & Caps (ebay store) Replicas - Anyone familiar? Opinions?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/17-Subaru-Impreza-Forester-WRX-Wheels-Rims-Brand-New_W0QQitemZ190274802413QQihZ009QQcategoryZ43956Q QssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem


I've been shopping classifieds and online for some inexpensive 17" wheel possibilities since Uncle Scotty told me I need at least 17" 225 tires to handle HPDEs or I should give up .

What do you think of these wheels on an ’02 wagon? I see that the offset is 3-5mm more than “nirvana.” But a lot of the less expensive wheels have the multiple mounting holes, and I don’t like that. It looks weak and bad. I’m not looking for bling wheels, just 17x7 or 7.5 that will fit well with absolutely no rubbing with 225/45-17 tires (and aren’t ugly to me). I plan to do at least -1.5 deg. camber in the front and as much as stock allows in the rear. Thanks

If someone told you to jump over the bridge, would you do that?

I'm not sure how heavy those wheels are, but they LOOK pretty heavy. Plus, you wouldn't know WHO makes those replica wheels. I'd just get some Rotas or go to TireRack.com or DiscountTireDirect.com. Btw, DTD has $50 instant saving when you purchase 4 wheels, plus shipping is included. Couple of their MB wheels (Gear & Weapon) are actually JDM wheels.

Only if it was Uncle Scotty.
