This. Sure there may be horror stories and pictures of wheels breaking. But you can break anything at some point. Still think it looks good though shadowmd

thanks, and i've even seen god's wheels aka volks etc break like the "fake" wheels do. if you drive normally (not hit a curb lol), you should have zero problems. also not a fan of "hella stance". this is the wrong car for that. why buy a car with so much perfomance and ruin it by slamming it and putting the wrong size tires on it. it makes what the car is capable of useless. i'd rather spend my money on performance etc. and yeah, if i sound salty, i am kind of am. tired of people bashing me or others for "rota's". i clearly have enough money in my car that i could of purchased "baller" wheels, but i'd rather spend that money on having fun with the car and not just looking good parked.

You talk about performance then complain about expensive wheels?

Sure some companies are just crap and sell a crappy high priced gold and diamond "Baller" wheel.

But take off your 20lb Rotas and put on a set of 14lb OZ Alleggerita hlt ... lets see 6 x 4 = 24 lbs of rotating mass... so around 200lb equivalent off your car.. itll brake faster... accelerate faster..

There is a reason good wheels like Volks, Oz, etc are expensive...

Hell even the stock BBS are 16lbs .. I love it when people downgrade to their "upgraded" wheels.

I'm not complaining about expensive wheels, just commenting on people bashing Rota's. And the wheels on my car were a gift. Besides the stock 05wrx wheels are crap anyway, that's why they are gone. And yes, I'm tired of people making comments about Rota's. Sure it wasn't a "serious" comment, but it's a f*^king, old played out comment.

Who the f@&* cares, its your car do what you want. Haters gonna keep on hating. I like getting heavier wheels so I can be that much closer to achieving bat tank status.

Your stock 05 wheels are much lighter than the rotas too...

Don't downgrade, say your into performance, then defend your choice as logical.

Rotas are for folks who want a different look and don't care about performance...for that they are fine, thumbs up, they make sense for folks on a budget, but call a pig a pig.

Moving on... show me more pictures.
