Default Any info about Weds Sport rims?

Hey. I was wondering if anyone had any info on Weds Sports rims. In particular, the SA-90's





From what i found out: 17x7.5, 45 offset, weigh 8.83kg.

Does anyone have any more info or pictures of these rims on subarus??

i'm thinking of buying these rims soon.

Thanks alot.

one word of advice...

the rims shown on the second picture (just the wheel) are low offset and probably in the 30's

if you look on the Impreza the spoke profile is vastly different because the offset is so high. This in my mind has a huge effect on how the rims look. For example, TE37 look a TON better in lower offset because the spokes are tilted in... I dunno just looks better IMO.

So what I'm getting at is make sure you're going to be happy with the rims at the higher offset because sometimes they don't look as good.

Thumbs up

These rims really caught my eye too. However rubbing is more of a prob on Legacys than the WRX/Imprezas. I dont know if these will work well on my car, I am waiting to comple my suspension mods and see how much drop I get.

The car on the right in the first pic is an Impreza obviously. Thats the look the spokes will have. Quite a bit different from the car on the left as ellisnc pointed out.


Heres another closer pic on a WRX:





The stats you have are right on, what else do you need to know?

Subysouth...I had a friend who had ET45 rims (17x7) with 215/45 tires and they rubbed like crazy. His suspension mods were (I think..) either KG/MM or H&R springs with AGX's. The fronts were ok but were pretty tight. The rears rubbed all the time, just over bumps in the road without even turning or anything. He ended up rolling the fenders and shaving down the part of the tire where it was rubbing.

p.s. he had a '98 GT wagon

8.83 Kilograms equals 19.4668lbs

17x7.5 45mm offset 5x100 Y23,000 = should be around $200.00/ea or even cheaper (depending on the exhange rate)

I'm sure gruppe-s or the likes can special order this but then again, you will have to pay more. (SPECIAL PRICING)

Thanks for the info tora, thats unfortunately what I am concerned about. I do really like the wheels tho. Gotta see where the suspension ends up. The first box of the STi suspension parts got to my house yesterday.

No problem. If you know ahead of time you will have rims/ tires that will rub, you just have to add in the cost of preparing the car for them. Get the fenders pulled out slightly and rolled, re-paint, or maybe a cut with some flares if you wanna go huge. All my friends in Japan build their cars around the rims. They figure out what they want then they prepare the car for that.
