Default Anybody wearing the Sparco Assetto Gara wheels?

I saw these Sparco Assetto Gara im 18" on TireRack and was wondering if anybody has actually gotten these and if you have pics? im kinda curious to see what they actually look like on a WRX. I love the look of these and the price is pretty cheap. The side picture thing doesn't do much justice lol

These

It was wishful thinking I saw a thread on it but it turned into a Rota bashing argument thread and not much was actually said about the wheel itself lol

I think i might just be the guinea pig and try these first once my tax return comes back lol. They are about the same weight as my current wheels so i don't think ill actually mind.

18.8lbs is not heavy if we are talking about 18x8. Not light like a forged, but no heavier than any rim in that size from others and just 1lb more than the Enkie RPF01.

I have been searching everywhere for the weight of the new Sparco, where did you find this info?

....18.8lb are the 17x8 ones.

Not sure what the 18x8s are but the Tire Rack rep told me 24lb so I passed... Now seeing that the 17x8 are 19lb, I'd sy the 18x8 are 21-22lb...

tirerack says they that the 18x8 is 20.4 lbs. I just came across these on tirerack actually and really like the look of them. Its just always kinda scary buying something when you don't know how it will look on your car.

the only thing i dont like about these wheels is the hub area. IMO they should have made it more round.

interested in seeing the pics though.

got any larger/closer pics of the wheels? the hub area looks more round as compared to the pentagon shape of the tr stock photos. thats really the thing i didnt like about these wheels but might reconsider.

They look really good. If you had a suspension set up like coil overs or springs the car would be set. Keep working on her, she's almost there. Nice job!

^ why did you choose that tire?
I'm looking at these wheels as well.....but do you have pics of your wheels in a "brighter" environment?
I have a white Impreza sedan, debating on getting the black version....but your wheels have me thinkin....

I chose the tire because it's priced pretty well and the 225/40 s are the least expensive while remaining functional IMO I'll prolly get some pics tonight hopefully but the bronze on white will look real good based on seeing them in person no picture fully represents the awesomeness. The tires are really sticky and r really quiet I'd recommend them.
