Got mine mounted this weekend: 17x7.5" with 225/45ZR-17 BFG g-Force Super Sport A/S. Loving it. I'll have to post better pictures when I get a chance to borrow a real camera.

A lot of great looking shoes in this thread! I just ordered some snow tires to put on my stock wheels this winter and I will be treating myself to the Sparco bronze set this spring.

Has anyone mounted the Matte Graphite Silver? I'm curious to know how closely they match the '12 OEMers. My hatch is black and I would like to stay with an OEM-like look.

I just ordered a set of 18x8 for my specB.

ON SALE NOW at tirerack or $129/ea (silver only) - $581 shipped to my door

It was between the bronze and silver for me, so the sale clinched the deal. They really look a LOT like my stock specB wheels, except they are 8" wide vs the stock 7" which will fit my 235/40/18's much better (I'll buy new summer tires over winter - waiting for a sale on some Star Specs... something <$250 a pop would be nice)

I've been watching TireRack and waiting for summer, which is when I planned to pick up a pair of 18'ers for next season. The silvers are on sale (as mentioned by farfrumwork) and I took the plunge. At $129, the time was now, while supplies allowed. They sell lots and lots of wheels and there is a good chance they'll move fast.

Arrived a last week.



....and the test fitment.

Got a couple of PM's re: wheel/tire specs and any other suspension mods/lowering.

No suspension adjustment/mods, just wheels and tires. Wheels come with lugs and center caps at $129 ea. Specs right off TheTireRack site:

Just got my Sparco wheels today. I opted for the matte black 18x8 +48. I'll have pics in a week or so on my 12 swp. Can't wait!



Fyi the emblems are blue because of the plastic covering. didn't take off yet

Cool

matte black 18x8 +48 Sparco Assetto Gara wheels with Nitto Motivo 235/40/18. Love the ride on these tires. With them filled 2-3 psi over stock I can't personally tell any difference in handling. The ride comfort is definitely better than the stock Dunlops. A little more wheel gap then the lowered guys would probably like, but I actually like the look of the "monster truck " look of my rexy

Here's a dirty shot. Haven't had a chance to clean them since the install. Monroe tire just reprogrammed my tpms sensors and the light is off! Couldn't be happier!

really leaning towards these shoes either in black or gold. everyone with them on look really clean! The price is really good at around 700, I guess my main question is quality and weight? Weight compared to oem? Compared to lets say a rota? around the 700ish range.

700 is about right, but if you aren't going to use your stock tpms sensors like i did, they'll run you an extra 160 for all four. Plus tirerack charges 42$ for shipping
