Default Enkei or BBS

I`m a big fan of oem wheels... It`s a perfect fit!!

As anybody tried both, are the Enkei (STI limited 2007) a lot weeker than the BBS and a lot heavier?

Thanks

OEM on my 2006 WRX are manufactured by Enkei for Subaru.

I like both Enkei and BBS. I have the Enkei NT03+M wheels. They are nice and light. Take a look at a picture of my car with them on it: http://www.ctsubie.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13759

Have you seen the new Enkei PF01's? http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...All&sort=Brand

They are both quality. I spent 8 years of my life selling the points of castings vs forgings. Casting won.

they're both good, high-quality wheels. Can't go wrong either way. As far as weakness and weight, these aren't concerns unless you track your car.
