Default Can anyone recommend a nice 16x7 or 16x7.5 wheel

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a 16x7 wheel that is light and more on the inexpensive side. This student can't afford expensive ones. I really like the Rota Attack style of wheel.

thanks

What about the stock RS wheels from 98-01? Cheap and fairly light. For aftermarket I would recommend the Rota Slipstreams.

I concure I ended up getting the Slipstreams. Hard to find though, took me awhile and ALOT of emails to find some.

I have a set of silver Slipstreams on order from Suby Dude.
Only 5 sets of silver are being made, custom order for me.
That leaves 4 sets if anyone needs them.

I agree with Tora. Get the stock wheels powdercoated, and keep your money.

Black to reality.

Default Fox 5's

You can get the Fox 5's from tirerack for a pretty good price in 16x7's and they will fit the subaru 4pot brake calipers if you ever want to go there...

They kinda look like stock but wider.
