Default Dealer Option BBS RK's, are they 17x7 or 17.7.5?

I cracked a rim and the car is in the shop. I don't have the wheels in fron of me to get the size. I need to know the size so I can order a new one. I bought these wheels as an option from the dealership. My car is a 2002 WRX.

How bad is the crack? Have you looked into a wheel repair shop? Considering Luke's response, that might be alot cheaper.

There are 2 BBS optional wheels... the forged ones, and the RK's. There's nothing different about the SOA RK's than the regular RK's is there?

I have the "non-fancy" non-forged BBS RK rim. So, the wheel that is advertised on the Tirerack website is not the same? I thought for sure they were. It's not a good assumption on my part, but looking at the picture they look like mine. I don't want to pay SOA's price for this wheel.

Email Luke@tirerack.com for the info on whether the wheels are the same, I have a feeling they aren't.

Your wheels are almost certainly 17 X 7. (95% sure)

It looks pretty bad. There was like a 3-4 inch section of the lip that was hanging off by a thread.
