Anybdoy running these yet? I stumbled across them on Tire Rack, and think they would make a pretty cool OE replacement 16" wheels for winter.
Since they're new I can't find any pictures, so figured I would try it here.

I don't think those are being released till the end of the month, so no pics or weight specs out there.

My thoughts exactly. Or a custom gold with WRB Sparco text.

Yeah the gold would be better for a blue car. For silver I like bronze.

I like the price, I just don't think I'm going to like the weight. I had read somewhere they'd be ~25lbs for 17".


I'm currently running 17lb 16x6.5 stockers. I'll probably end up with some 16x7 RS wheels instead. Want more rubber without excessive weight...

Right... corrected.

The TD wheels are definitely superior... and at a superior price.

Yep, that wasn't there yesterday.

Not too bad on weight compared to my SF alloys (~16lb). I need to get my head gasket sorted out and then some new shoes for the Foz...

The weight isn't listed for the 5x100 fitments still. But I typed in Mazda 3 and those had weights listed. Strange

I saw that too... although most likely they are the same wheel drilled to different holes and offset. So the weight will be about the same.

Three of mine arrived last night; sweet! Weighed wheel and tire together (bought them mounted/balanced from Tirerack) using the not so precise bathroom scale method and came up with about 40lbs. Not sure if that helps anyone, but the tire is a General Altimax Artic 215 55R16. I plan to weigh stock wheel and tire when they come off this evening just to have an idea of the difference.

Wheel has a great look and one very nice thing is that the Sparco decals come with the kit but are not applied. Undecided on whether or not I'll leave the Sparco center caps on or off... Will plan to update thread with pic(s).

Offset restriction? They still don't have the offset or weights listed for the '06 Impreza 2.5i wagon or the '00 Forester. I would contact Luke@Tirerack.
