Default What USDM wheels do you prefer?

I just wanted to see what the subaru crowd liked best, as far stock Subaru wheels.

Option 1: 1998 RS wheels



Option 2: 1999 RS wheels



Option 3: 2000-2001 RS wheels



Option 4: 2002-2004 RS/WRX wheels



I'm just including the 16" USDM wheels. I think pretty much everyone likes the 17" BBS's. I know they look badass on the classic impreza.

don't forget to vote

i hate WRX stock wheels. I want to find a 98-01 RS to trade rims with, because I like them all....especially gold 98's!

if not, i may just paint my stockers white or gold. This is my last few months using them ever....wont be using them next winter because it will be put away all winter, and i usually have OZ's that i ride on.

Lots of people love the 6-spokers...which is why it's nearly impossible to find a used set in good condition (i.e., no curb rash).

I like rims that you can see the brake calipers and rotors easily. That's why P1's and '01 RS rims are my favourites

I like the 00-01 6-spokes.. though the 98 golds are like, totally a collector's item.

Right now I have Option 3 on my RS, and Option 2 sitting at the foot of my bed. 2 weeks ago, I had Option 1 sitting at the foot of my bed, until I traded them for Option 2. I think I'm going to get Option 4 for my Impreza L and use Option 2 as summer wheels, w/ Option 3 as my winter wheels.

Confused yet?

I still haven't realized I traded away my goldies though. My RS is silver and this kid that wanted to trade has a white RS, so it was the right thing to do.

ok heres my warped sense of these wheels

the goldies look best on the rally blue 98 99's

the silver 5 spoke look good on 98 to 01

the sixers look good on any color 98 to 01

the wrx/rs 02 03 04 to me only look good on the 02 or newer model

Definately the 98s or 99s. I've got the 99s on my car, personally I'm not a huge fan of the gold, only on certain cars. The 99s are by far my favorite wheel ever on any car, stock or not, I love them!!!
