I think they are black - the pic with the blue one might still have the plastic cover/film on it from shipping?

I won't have cash for wheels for a few months, let alone tires. Lol sorry guys. $900 isn't alot in the world of wheels, but it's a fairly big chunk of change for a student to spend on a non performance part.

I can understand that,I'm also a student right now the only reason I'm looking for a set of wheels is because i just sold my j-lines from my old car so using that money to get some wheels on the wrx..Tire rack has a set 17's for $560.00

I've got KYB struts on the way, and the Epic Engineering springs are from rallysportdirect.com are already here - those guys have fast shipping too!

I got mine about a month ago but yesterday is the first day it wasn't raining or dark when I was off work. For those that don't know, they're 'Engineered by OZ' so they may be inexpensive, but they have solid backing. They're to replace my stock wheels for spring and fall (summers are on 17x8.5 Advan RS)

Gold 17x7.5 et48
Ordered from Tire Rack, arrived two days after ordering, and like Bulls_fan they came with the blue centers (but I emailed Tire Rack and they sent black center stickers no cost since the image had black like I thought I was ordering)

This to show more of the true gold color


On the car. The gold does wash out a little in bright sun but this photo is overexposed so it still looks good in person. In darker light, it seems to have a touch of bronze to me (which I like)

Initial pic of my '02 Wagon with the 17" anthracites. Very, very pleased with the results . Naturally they look even better in person.



Will try to post some more with different angles after she's cleaned properly.
