Thumbs up uncle ben's my *ss!

those wheels look tight! i've seen something similar on a dodge intrepid/300M. ROH wheels aren't that bad. dolphin, show me an example of non-r*ce wheels! beside american equipment racing, crager, or centerline...and the obligatory bling bling 20" dubs...show me what you consider non-r*ce...wellllll?

you used the word "tight" to describe them and said you saw similar wheels on a chrysler product. who said the word rice anyway?

not rice:

Thanks for the opinions guys.

I went by my dealer to get my oil changed. They had some OZ SLs on display. I picked one up and HOLY ****! They are so light! Has anyone heard of them bending easily?

actualy I do know of the oz's gettin bent on simple pot holes! so be carful when you get em...they are nice wheels though but for the $ i think they should be stronger..not to mention the name they carry.. be amazed the rota subzeros are actualy very strong...Ive went over God only knows how many pot holes and not bent em....but i think youd be safe with the oz's if you use a thicker tire.....

back to the subject...the wheels are tight just for subarus imo


oh yeah the rotas are like 17lb's only .5 more than stock!

Have a Nice Day?

they are too funky. I like the OZ's, SSR's, P-1's, or even my inexpensive Sub-zeros. Of course there are others too
but those in the picture are a tad bit Art Deco for my tastes.
Your car though bro and I dont mean to offend

Those wheels would look nice on a Honda. And I'm not being a smart ass. I've seen some rims that look nice but wouldn't buy them for myself. I think if you like them, buy them. That's all that matters. Personally... I would buy them but I'm not sure they would look their greatest on a WRX. Nice rims anyway.

i like that wheel (first one posted)

yah, 22lbs isn't going to be too much on the car, i have 1000x miglias and those are 22.3 17x7's. it's MUCH heavier compared to stock setup but the car accelerates just as fast. i think only at drag races at the strip will you be able to really tell the difference on unsprung weight. for the street, just get something that's good looking and within budget.

They belong on a Civic. At 22lbs, they don't belong on a performance vehicle. (Hence the Civic reference )

I kind of like them. No, wait a minute... that's just my Photoshop skills .

Actually, they don't look too bad. Of course, I had to lower it and tint the windows.

Then dont look at anything prodrive. Some people dont want to break their rims hitting potholes.

22 pounds is too much, IMHO...
That would put the wheel/tire combo over 50 pounds.....
It would handle like a brick!

JMHO....

EDIT: Dual drilled wheels belong on a Honda.
