Default Help choosing new rims

Hey so i have a blue 04 wrx. I want black rims and have been looking at a few different ones but also i have seen the black rims with a blue lip like so> https://www.iagperformance.com/shopp...56.1YMHBCTBLUE Does anyone know of a website on the internet where you can put rims on a wrx to see how they look? Or can share a link of a picture with a blue wrx with the blue lipped rims. Thanks

My .02 would say drop the blue lip. WRB is a interesting shade of blue to match. So if your rim lip doesn't match the car good it will look out of place.

Check out the Enkei RPF1. Great wheel and light. Not much more than the ROTA's. They come in black too.

wheels

WHEELS

cars have steering wheels and road wheels

wheels have rims

hence

WHEELS for the car...rims for the wheel


and....after many years of doing this....buying the best inexpensive wheels you can get is the best money spent

rpf1's can be had brand new for under $1k shipped for a 17x8 5x100 +45
