'Tis true. They run about $1200/set plus shipping. Here is a link to the gold version:

Try HERE. They are shown in gold but I'm pretty sure that they can get silver as well.

I like those fogs too. Are they the Aussie fogs? We have to modify our support bars behind the bumpers for those right? I don't know what happened to that group buy, seemed like a lot of complaining. They are good looking rims. Silver would have been real NICE.

careful with 48 offset if you are getting 225 wide tires. the ones in the original pic are the uk/euro WRX wheels that are the same as our stockers, only those are 17s, but still have a 55 or 53 offset so you could run 225's without rubbing. the sparcos are not subaru oem rims just in case you wanted exactly those rims in the picture. i always say go oem.

i would go with a 225-45-17 for the 17 inch wheel
as for 18 you can go with a 225-40-18 the 04 wagons come with a 225-45-17as option yes it is a 53 offset but a 48 will fit those fine without rubbing

a true sign of a n00b. if you did your research, you'd know that with certain tire manufacturers, 225 WILL rub with a 48 offset on a wagon. for example, Falkens run really wide, e.g. a 225 falken is a lot wider than a 225 toyo. trust me ive had both side by side, where i compared a 205 falken and a 225 toyo, they are virtually identical, off by MAYBE 2-3mm, but the specs call for a 20mm difference in tire width. and any wagon owner with aftermarket rims can confirm that some 225's will indeed rub if you have a wagon with 48 offset rims. just look for the "225s that fit a wagon" thread. you'll see what i am talking about. thats why i always suggest 215-45-17 with 48 offset rims on a wagon, its not worth the gamble of 'maybe' rubbing.

also remember that KOZZ is just trying to sell you rims. they arent going to tell you the that it doesnt fit some of the time.
