Good question. If I remember right they weight about 17lbs or so and are 16x6.5, so I'm gonna go with cast.

Christ, what was I thinking on the width. And I had a set!!! Fixed.

I still believe they are cast, but I have no way of actually telling...

Pretty certain those are cast or else they would weigh less than 16.5 lbs.

For comparison sake - '04 STI Wheels - 17 x 7.5" weigh 15.6 lbs ( IIRC ) and those are Forged wheels.

Hello Ty:

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. The only forged wheels that we offer are the BBS wheels. The other wheels, such as on the 2005 Impreza 2.5RS Wagon are cast.

If you need any future assistance, please let us know.

Best wishes,
