Default Opinions on wheels.

I'm just looking for opinions and thoughts on what color wheel I should get for a matte white Impreza. Leave links in private message or as a reply. I'm just indecisive and would appreciate others thoughts! SUBIE NATION!

Where can I find these? Thanks for the input sir! I'm looking for a real nice set of wheels for a good price. I'm looking to spend up to like 1150 on wheels alone, and whatever else I need on tires.

if $1150 is your budget I believe flares and 10.5's is pretty far out of your budget

Buy some 18x10.5 +0 or 12 varrstoens. Some decent tires.
And flares.
Should be around 2300-2600 for everything.

Then you need to have the flares install or DIY yourself.

How much did you pay for the rims and tires? That looks so nice dude!!! Did you have to roll the fenders? I want that exact setup but maybe a different colored rim if possible? And maybe a little more camber.

yes, he had to roll fenders, and they are out of your budget.

and anyone who calls their car a "whip" should be whipped themselves.

I feel like forums are hateful. I come here for advice and I'm new to it and keep getting verbally assaulted (not saying you did) by random people that get pissed at me for putting it in the wrong forum not knowing there are ones for the specific topic.

Before you purchase anything, hit the wheel and tire section and do lots of research.

I really have to. I know what I want it's just hard to find. I want the wheels to be noticeably wider but not like insanely wide and the way they are spoked doesn't really bother me I like an assortment of different kinds. What finish would look the best do you think? Gold? White? Or silver?
