Default opinions on rims

Im thinking about purchasing a set of sport edition fox 2 rims from the tire rack and Imjust wondering If anyone has any opinions on these.

Im not looking to autocross or anything just want some cheap 17" rims for my gc8.

I think for 17" Rota's are reasonably priced. (http://www.subydude.com/parts/index.php#wheel)

Good luck in finding some Bling for your ride.

Post rotas

i like rotas but it seems like everyone has a set. I want something that nobody else has and I have yet to see sport editions on a gc8 or any suby . im not going to get a big break kit so i dont have to worry about clearance and like i said im not going autox or anything like that just normal street use I still havent decided yet so all opinions are welcome.

I like them. They look very similar to the 00/01 RS 16" stock wheels, so won't get huge attention, but will look clean and a bit more agressive.

That wheel lineup seems great. I'm in the process of buying an S4 and looked over wheels. I can get Fox 5's for $129 on Tire Rack.

Personally, I'd stay away from Rota's if you plan to ever race or track the car. I've heard of too many local people cracking them.
