Not ALL of them, but some of them are. Some designs have 5x100 +45 in bronze, but not gun metal, while others have them in silver, also.

I thought the same thing, but you have to check out each wheel individually.

Example:

R5:F is 19x8.5 5x100 +45 in all three available color choices



Whereas R6:F only comes in Bronze 19x8 +40 for 5x100



S6:F can be had in Silver or Bronze in 19x8 +40 for 5x100



X5:F I'm not as thrilled about design-wise, but there are more 5x100 offset, color and size options for it:

I dunno. That's pretty flush right there, man. A 1" drop would be nice especially if you threw on your body kit. I say keep the rims and go for it.

Honestly, I'm kind of not enjoying the extra weight and extended wheel base compared to 16" RS wheels or even 17" Enkei. haha I've been spoiled! I do love the stance, but the acceleration is not to my liking, although the car feels so much more planted.

I dunno. I'm thinking I might enjoy the R5:F or S6:F wheels since they're 19". The R5:F would be easier to clean and look cleaner without the extra holes (compared to S6:F).

I'd like to get Forester XT Sports wheels at 17x7 with extra rubber as my new winter wheels.



I'll probably get them new since Subarugenuineparts sells them for less than $1,400, although at that price I'd rather just get the JDM STI/Legacy tS wheels.



Someone else has first dibs on the 2011 STI Enkei wheels, but I'll let you know if that falls through, Jake.

Another chapter closed.




I learned a LOT in the past 2 years. I can't put a price on knowledge. I'm appreciative for every moment, good and bad.

Thanks.

I thought about it, but there's a difference:

I made this thread because it was the first widebody sedan WRX anyone had really seen. At this point everyone's seen the BRZ for almost a year now (only since May, locally) and I've already opened up a thread in the BRZ forum and on FT86Club, where it's more likely to be appreciated.

A lot of members elsewhere have seen me post about the BRZ for months, so they're happy to see me actually have one (not that people here aren't, but a lot have been surprised).
