Default 2005 Impreza wheel on my Corolla

I hate to be the guy to join a forum just to ask a question but here it goes...

I put 05-06 Oem Impreza wheels on my Corolla S. Love the color, it matches my car color so well.

Bought them on craigslist, long story short, one of the rims was cracked and I didn't realize it. So I'm looking for a replacement rim. Just wanted to ask, does this rim come in any other finish? While researching I noticed in pictures this rim sometimes looks bronze/gunmetal sometimes silver. I just want to make sure I order a rim with the right finish. Thank you for any help you can provide.





Yes I know my car has 4x4 suspension lol, I plan on dropping it at least 1.5-2 inches in the coming weeks. Any help is appreciated.

As far as I know that's the only color they came in. It's like a gun metal finish.

Thank you, that's what I thought, although I thought someone here would know for sure. I'm finding oem replacements and there are a few finishes to choose from but maybe those are aftermarket finishes...hope someone can 100% confirm that these rims only come in one finish. Thanks again bikelok.

They did come that color. It is very typical to see them repainted various other colors as rattle-can-painting your factory wheels is a rite of passage for budding Subaru owners.

Hey, thanks for the reply. I know the rims I have are oem finish I just wanted you all to confirm that they only came in one finish so when I go to order the rim I get the right one. In many pictures like I said these rims look silver and then sometimes bronze and sometime gunmetal that's why I was curious.

Found a used replacement rim for $125, gonna pick up today and have it mounted. Good thing that guy that sold me these rims gave me $100 back. And I learned a lesson to inspect things better before purchasing. The guy claimed he had no idea it was cracked.

Thanks for everyones help.
