Default Work vs. Volk...Which to choose???

I have an 04 wrb and I am about to choose very soon between the work meister S2R(forged 2 piece) in burning black on 17x7.5 and the Volk LE37t 17x7.5 in gunmetal. I am lookin for that clean dark look
the meister i can get a sweet deal for $1900 shipped only for a limited time
and the volks costs $2020 shipped..

What do you want advice on? Which wheels look better? It's all personal opinion.

Both are very attractive, lightweight, strong wheels.

Ooooooh that is a tough choice...... I love Volk but I never see Work wheels around here (seattle area) so the Works would be more rare. Being that you get a good deal on the work wheels I would get those.

Everyone and their mother has TE37s, go for the Works.

Have you taken a look at either the Work Meister S1 or the SSR Professor SP1s? I think both are available in black with a polished look, and very few people have them on Imprezas.

Get a wheel that you like. Keep in mind though, if you dent, bend, scrape, etc, your wheels, it might take just as long to replace them as it did to get them in the first place. Another issue might be, how easy is it to clean the wheel? I had se37a's, and they were a major pain in the butt to clean. A lot of spokes or grooves in the spokes tended to kill the tips of my fingers. Whatever you decide on, get a good set of wheel locks.

Thats why I'm seliing my Enkei RPM II's, I am a clean freak, and these are a pain to clean, I am going with an easy 5 spoke style!!

I have LE37Ts and because everyone and their mom is starting to get them for their WRXs, not to mention Rota's making a replica of them now, I want to get something different. I vote for the Works.
