Post Motegi MR7 Wheel opinions?

My dealership just put some of these wheels on a Blaze yellow WRX and they are some really sharp looking wheels. I was thinking of possibly getting the P7 but these are less money weigh about the same and I like the looks of them better. Any opinions? Anyone running these or have dealt with this manufactures products?

Looks like yet another Advan ripoff to me.

I don't know about what the site say but I was told that the ones put on the WRX are a 52 offset.

Look on the inside lip of the wheel, the offset it probably stamped somewhere on it.

Are these 17X7 +52? If so I'm interested. How much do they cost?

I just talked to Motegi and they said that they only come +40 m(in 17")...so if someone is telling you it's a +52, I would check the rim. I think you are being misled.

I concur with the +40mm crowd. I saw this wheel about a week ago at a local wheel shop and they told me +40mm only.
