Lol really? I think they are just a bad looking wheel in general but on the RS and forester and lgt, i didnt think they look that good, i would rather keep the stock wheels on those respective cars. On the BRZ. they are still ugly but passable.

Dont get me wrong though, any other wheels on the brz make it look so much better. even the stock legacy 5 spokes made the brz look so much better.

I guess its just different taste

i think if all the spokes were the same color, it would look alright, it would look similar to the new wrx wheels

If I could drive with a brown paper bag covering the wheels at all times, I would.

If I buy a brz, I already decided I'd buy new wheels immediately and save the stock wheels for winter

I love how that guy painted them gold! I wish he'd update with better quality pics on his thread. My car has too much chrome to deal with gold wheels, which is fine. So many people are steering away from chrome that I feel it my duty (hehe) as a Blaxican to embrace it!

Cue Jive.

I had mine blue for a while, but when I had my new tires mounted, the dip was scraped off. Going to dip them black again since Home Depot had a sale on black plasti dip. Only use them for racing now anyway.

I love that someone put LGT 5-spokes on! I painted a set of those bronze for my WRX and felt they were the perfect OEM replacement.

The BRZ wheels are just awful in stock form. Painted all one color looks a bazillion times better, but I think they would do well to get rid of the 5 inbetween spokes and just leave the split-5. Less hassle to clean that way, too!

The OEM wheels look good all black! I'm not a fan of them with machined front, however.
