Default Wagon wheels advice!!

Hey
I am looking to get a dif set of rims for my 05 wagon I don't know what to get just upgrade a little. Someone locally has 2010 wrx 17's and I wondered what u guys thought about that as a cheap step up from my 16's now. Only a few hundred bucks with tires that will need replacing in near future

They're an upgrade, 17x7 rather than 16x6.5... Without knowing what you want I guess it's a step up.

My advice is to save your money - buy nice rims and tires for a summer set-up. Save your current stock setup for winter - 16X6.5 is fine for winter and autox if you do that.

Buying a cheap 17 in will be an improvement, but soon you will want nicer non-stock rims.
