Question Motegi MR8 wheels...?

I'm looking for a 17" WRX wheel/tire package. I have hunted around this board and elsewhere for wheels that I like the looks of and which aren't too expensive. These will be for general street use and I'm not very concerned with having the "ultimate" from a weight or build perspective.

So far, the wheels that I find most visually appealing (to me!) are silver Motegi MR8 8-spokes that I actually saw on a blue WRX wagon at a dealer (horribly marked up, I might add!).

I liked the looks, and for $150 each I am not expecting the moon, but does anybody have any real-life experience with Motegis??

Thanks,

AT

Two things:

1 - They only seem to come in 42 offset. For a 7" wide wheel, thats about 10mm too low. Rubbing on the outer fender might be a problem.

2 - A little searching on the net can find them for $140. $10 a wheel is not worth a bigger hassle in getting the wheels though.
