Default Just bought new Prodrive Wheels for STi!

Well, I didn't buy the volk Te-37's afterall. I really wanted to go with 18" wheels for the first time ever on a car, so I bought some Prodrive GC-06D British Black 18X8.0 +43 offset. Supposedly they fit perfectly according to Prodrive, and the dealer I bought them off of. I got a decent deal because I bought them in USA and they ship next week. These wheels look really nice.

Thanks. It won't be for a while since we'll have snow around here for good three months yet. I bought them now to take advantage of the crummy US dollar, right now.

Good choice. I just ordered 18x8" GC-010s (British Black) for my car last week, but they won't be available for ~60 days. I should have them when my car arrives back in CA at the beginning of March.

No, I don't have a picture of them on a wrx. I paid a little over $2100 for them. Huge deal considering the same wheels would have cost me 3500 US if I bought them in Canada!

I purchased my GC-010s along with STi lateral links, STi trailing arms, GroupN strut tops, Subaru front lip, and a Cusco rear strut bar as a packaged price... So I don't know the exact price breakdown.

Benson, Prodrive-USA (located in Southern California) has had/sold a few sets of the GC wheels in the country. So, sometimes they (or vendors) actually have the wheels in stock. But, in my experience, it's pretty rare.

There's a picture of GC-06s on a WRX in this thread;

Woo Hoo essogas finally got some new shoes.......

I persoanlly like the look of Prodrive's better than both the Gram Lights and Volks you wanted, plus the British Black looks so sexy. Post pics once you get them on your ride.
