Styling is MEH at best IMHO. You'll have to give us some weights. 90% of the subaru guys want to know that first.

Were an odd bunch for sure.

i'd rather see 18x8.5 and wider with the offset being +/-5 from the +40 depending on width and spoke clearance.

18x8 +40 isn't that attractive a spec imo. too narrow for a 255/35/18, 245/35/18 is an odd size with limited tires available, and the offset will force people to modify fenders and/or add negative camber.

also, the weight is going to dissuade many from considering them.

Good info Thank you, I will pass this along.

what is a weight you would like to see?

Keep in mind this wheel comes in around 185.00 per wheel as is both in 18-8 and 18-9.5

27!!!!! well if you get wider specs the WFC will maybe nibble but the rest of us don't want anything close to 27 lbs. That's pretty sad coming from foose.
I would like to see 18x8.5 44ish In the 17-22lbs range.

We see so many guys in with there D.D using super light weight wheels, one thing in common they are almost all bent. Chicago land is tough on L.w wheels.its a fineline to walk weight-strength-cost.

Too narrow, too heavy, too low off an offset for me to be interested in them.
