Default centerline forged wheels?

http://www.centerlinewheels.com/w_catalog/fwd.html

check out these new wheels from centerline, I still have to find out if they come in the correct offset but they look nice.
The excel:
17x7=13 lbs
18x7.5=15 lbs
19x7.5=17 lbs

not to bad. Ill post more when I find out more.

Good luck I don't think they make them to fit Subarus with money in hand I could get anything on them. This was about a month ago, not one of the Centerline distributers I talked to knew about them or could get them. One guy told me that if I found out the part number he could order me anything from centerline but I couldn't return them(special order) and he had no idea if they would fit!!!

I saw these in an ad for UltraPerformance: 1-8066-818-5872. Try asking them. BTW, $1899 for 18's with tires, $1639 for 17's...

I am interested in the RPM's. I have found out that the 18 x 7.5 is 40mm offset. The price I got with nitto tires was $1897 from WHEELWAREHOUSE.COM I mentioned to him him that I didn't think that I should go with any offset under 45mm for 18'' wheels. He then told me that they would fit fine and that he has sold 35mm to a WRX owner. I don't know if this is true or not so don't hold it against me. Please let me know if this is true, I don't want to have rubbing issues.

Later.

Not to disagree, because I think an offset of +35 is silly, but the yellow Axis WRX had 19" +35mm Axis Hagens on it. And it was very lowered and didn't rub. No idea on the width or if any body work was done, but none was mentioned.

I have been talking to centerline about these wheels via email...after their responses, I wouldn't give them a penny. Not nice people at all. On that note, 40mm offset may be ok on a 8" wide rim but would look funny IMO on a 7.5" rim...they would look sucked inside the fenders.

I agree with you completely...I emailed them as well and mentioned increased stress on suspension components, bearings, etc from incorrect offset...their reply was this: "Apparently, everyones opinion varies greatly. Being that 8mm is only a little more than 1/4", I really can't imagine any premature wear on any part of the vehicle. We have dealers currently installing these wheels on WRX's."

obviously they could care less = they won't get my money
