Did some research on these today, and found that they're actually manufactured by OZ. Placed my order for a set of 17x7.5" +48 in Gold for my 2006 WRX Limited Wagon. Gonna get em wrapped in Federal 595s or 595 EVOs and then mounted on/around the 21st/22nd. Pics to come.

What size tires you running on them? Also curious to know your suspension specs. Fenders rolled?

How has the paint held up on these guys? Any substantial chipping? I'm really considering blue 17s for my 2010 SWP wagon.

Got mine last week, but just got em mounted and balanced today.

This doesn't 100% address your question, BUT, the paint seems to be of decent quality. I can't see them chipping though I will point out that they seemed to have left out the rear of the spokes and the inner lug area. Not that either spots matter since they won't be seen, but one would expect those areas to be painted.

First picture of a few more to come (as soon as the battery on my REAL camera finished charging.)

Moar pictures.







Sun messed the last one's colors up a bit, but whatever. Now I just need to fix my stance with the STi Wagon Pink springs and I should be set.

For you wagon folk, these with the +48 offset in 17x7.5" + 225/45/17s Federal 595s is about perfect if you don't want to roll the fenders. Checked clearance today by backing up onto a sloped curb... tucked the rear tire inside the fender and there seems to be no potential for rubbage, but DAMN it's close!

Bronze Sparco's on my white 2011 WRX. Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position mounted on them. Really good tires, so far.




As someone mentioned earlier, they do look brighter in person. They turn out dark in pictures, not sure why that is.

Yes - you got it!

I'll take more pics when I get around to it very soon. I like the rims because they don't stand out much - it gives it a nice sleeper look. If you want them to stand out more, then I'd go with gold or blue, for example. Depends what you're into.

thanks! looking forward to them! yep i prefer the sleeper look as well. im still undecided though. black would be nice, silver may not look too good on SWP, but the bronze and matte graphite silver look great too...

Hey awdX, you missed taking the blue plastic covering off your wheels. It's on the center cap and on the little "SPARCO" letters around the edge of the wheel

Actually, he's right. The S should still be silver, meaning he still has the little light blue protective film over them, but he DOES have the blue center caps. I special requested black ones and TireRack shipped them out to me at now extra charge, along with the black center decals. I actually just wanted the decals, but whatever works.

Rocking the 17s on my gc. These things are sweet. Get nothing but compliments on em. Couple very minor chips on one, but that was my fault.

Asharus - here you go. Just took these today.

And for all those that previously commented - yes, the first pics were taken BEFORE taking off the clear blue plastic film. I had just mounted the wheels and took the pics before taking the film off. Now it's off in these photos.





I personally love the mild yellow tint they have. Again - it doesn't turn out in pictures much, but it's there in person.

Just for the sake of doing.... the +48 17x7.5" with 225/45/17 Federal 595s is literally perfect for an unrolled GD Wagon. I couldn't be happier with the way they sit on my 2006 Limited.
