Nice set of wheels. Hard to come by. I just wish they were wider.

Exactly why I never went after them. I love the regular version 7 wheels though. These look used? If they were 18x8.5 those would be owned by me already. LOL

I imagined these on your car man....they are perfect for you.lol
Funny you should say that.... I almost bought a set during the fall time frame but got cold feet and never went through with the buy. Any wheels I get need to fit my car now the joys of being slightly widebodied.

No bashing or anything but I never think I will understand wanted a wheel that's more then 8" wide on a DD car. Now if it was tracked I can understand. I'm biased though since I rock 17x7 wheels haha.

7.5 actually looks pretty nice with semi meaty tires on it.
With the right offset lots of cars can pull it off.

This is exactly why I'm still rocking stock wheels! lol

I can't decide on a damn wheel. These cars are fairly light and well balanced. So I think 1" in each direction, 17x7.5, would be about perfect. Not to leave out the fact that these cars don't appreciate a heavy wheel. I just can't seem to pull the trigger on anything. Eventually I'll find something that's just right. :-)

Just find a nice set of gold bbs from a 04sti or some bbs optional wheels. I have bbs rk's and just love the look and clean style of them.

Simplicity is my choice!

17x9 +44 but have 12mm spacers on order to poke them out a little bit. Of course, after editing these pictures, I almost don't see the point. Hah. We'll see.
