Default Anyone Running These wheels from Tire Rack?

http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...ll&sort=Weight

I am thinking of buying these for my Race wheels. They only weight 14.6lbs and they are a very good price.

Only problem is they don't have any reviews on Tire Rack. I am looking to see if anyone has run these on a Subaru.

I ran the 17x9 +45 on my STI for a few years. LOVED them! They're now on my friends Mazda 3 lol. I wouldn't hesitate to get them

Do they have any other sizes that are 5x100? Tire rack doesn't let you search by size >

My brother has had K1-TSs on his 2000 Eclipse for years, including some track and auto-x use. No issues at all. Koseis are also quite popular in the Bimmer and Miata crowds for track use.

I ran 15x7" Kosei K1 Racings for some track duty years ago. Again, no issues, and nice and light.

Looking at their website it appears they have a few different 17" and 18" options in either 5x100 or dual drill (5x100/112).

Kosei K1 TS are pretty common autocross rim for DS WRx's and some other classes. They light and strong enough for AX, at least.

Cool, I wonder if the tire rack can get some of those 17x8 +45, that would be a pretty awesome lightweight setup!
