Price-no-object, you want looks:

Prodrive GC-06d
Volk LE37T
Limix Linea BE5 RSK

You want something at a better price:
Rota Attacks
OZ Crono Evolution
5Zigen Fireball (sometimes tough to find; named after their popular catback exhausts)

You want good looks, but lighter and cheaper wheels/tires: get your wheels in 17" instead of 18" (though not all of the above are available in both sizes.

I'd be happy to put any of the above on my car; they're all high-quality wheels that will fit right and perform well, though obviously with some variances. The top two would be my first two choices.

I was actually looking into the gold sti one (the 1st pic). But when I checked for pricing, it was like almost $2000 just for the wheels. But they do look pretty sick though

I agree that any of these wheels/rims would look good on my car...just so many choices man. I'm also on a budget because I spent most of my money on the "go fast" parts. So Iguess I'm limited to what I can buy. OZ, Rota's, prodrive...

Ok I tried to post this question before but it got taken off.

I 've seen rota attacks out there for $550. Is that for a set or each wheel? How good are the rotas if they are that cheap for a set?

you should check out Suby Dude he has some of the best prices on Rota wheels. they look good are light weight and won't cost an arm and a leg. I bought a set of 17x7.5" Rota tarmacks in steel grey and Kumho ECSTA Supra 712's in 225/45/WR17 tires and they look great with the WR Blue and really improve the handling.

Damn Joe, you don't see enough cars at your local UCKK meet to form an opinion?

If it was my car, I'd go with either gold Prodrive P7's, GC06 or GC07's. They look bad as hell!!!!

For your car... definitely 18's. Slam that baby!!!!! That's if your wife lets you.

a lot of people put gold wheels on WR Blue. I've got white 17" subzero's on mine, mostly because i got a deal on the wheels, tires, and lugnuts and i was only looking to upgrade my tires. a dark color wheel with a polished lip looks really good as well.

The best way to search this IMO is to look up the "calling all blue cars" thread in the member's rides forum. I dig white, but it's awful to keep clean. Current car: black w/ white wheels - worst paint color and worst wheel finish for keeping clean.

I guess it kinda depends on what else you are doing to the car. I went with the blue/black theme, so some darker whels work out ok. If you wanted to keep the headlights silver and add the clear side makers and suck, then the silver or white wheels wil be ok. Her is a pic of my car.

Thanks for all the replies fellas. I guess it all comes down to how much I want to invest. All the wheels you guys posted and/or suggested all look good. Thanks...
