Were the V7 gold wheels offered on that body style STI in other markets? If so I'd say go with them, for an EDM/Australian/JDM period correct look.

The V7 wheels were offered on the JDM bugeye STis. I am not sure if they were offered on any other cars but I know they were offered on them which is one of the draws.

I like the JDMs because it seems like even though the BBS are nice, all STis do have them.... even if they are different bolt patterns...

I figured out why I like the bbs goldies. The lines are crisper. Goes with the rest of the cars lines better.

Neither wheels, both styles are played out. Be different and look through 100s of rims. You can find something better

The BBS gold looks so much cleaner. The V7 gold looks kinda greenish but that could be due to the pic you took them from. Still, BBS wins.

Haha I was wondering why both the wheels had the weights in the exact same spot, etc.

The V7's look too much like spray bombed stock WRX wheels anyway.

They'd probably look better in a different color. They look like they're sick in that shot. Not like "siiiick yo!" but like about to puke...
