Got a price range? Any particular style or design? You've got a broad wide open field out there.

Mynxi has silver with gold. 1000 per rim or for all 4? I say stick with Rotas if it's 1000 for 4. If it's 1000 each then you can have Volk, Advan, BBS, OZ, Prodrive, etc

FYI:

Subiegal (ie. www.allsubaru.com, down in Seattle, WA I believe) is having a one-time special on a set of 4 17" anthracite prodrive P1's for 750.00 USD pick-up (killer price IMHO). Given current exchange rates, it's a pretty good deal. They're used takeoffs, but no scratches/curbage whatsoever. They're probably used just enough that you wouldn't look that obvious crossing the border with bling-bling shiny new rims.


here's the thread:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=713622

As to ROTA -- I think bronze would look good on silver, especially the ROTA Torque's and Downshifts (haven't seen many subies with the downshifts before). If you're going for lightweight and 16" -- I think a set of bronze ROTA slipstreams would also look great.

It's too bad the ROTA formula mesh is only available in 18 x 8" otherwise I'd suggest that one -- since not many people have these rims yet, and they are a very good replica of the BBS wheels that come on the Impreza STi S203


anyways -- lots of choices out there!
good luck!

most ROTA's for subaru (non-STi fitment) are 17" x 7.5" ET48
Prodrive P1's are 17" x 7" ET52
factory is 16 x 6.5" ET53-55 (some subaru OEM wheels were stamped ET55, some ET53)
