Heavy, but not a bad looking rim. What price?

Can you get them in 16"? I really need a smaller set of rims, and all the new wheels keep coming in 17 or 18".

I like them, but I agree with Jeff...

I want a nice set of 16" wheels too and all I can find are 17" and 18"

Default fair...

They resemble the 2000 - 2001 stock rim. Which isn't necessarily bad or good. What are the color choices. These might look nice in white or gold.

I like them. Esp. if they come in anthracite!

I must say that I also feel tirerack needs to carry more 16" wheels for subies. 17's are fine if you live in a frost free town, but anywhere with winter and your screwed on 17's. It's not like the frost heaves and potholes go away for the summer! Also, many of us like to play rally every now and again. I would seriously hesitate to do that on 17's!

These are decent basic looking wheels that would probably sell half decent if they priovide good fitment and cost less than $200 for 17 or 18" models.

Default nice looking

I dig six-spokes. They'd look good in white.

I GUESS if you need to give away a set for test-fitting I'll do it. Go ahead and ship them out to me Michelin Pilot Sport 215/45. Thanks...

The sport edition Fox 2 in 17x7 for the Scoobi's cost is $129.00 per wheel.

The 16x6.5 ET50 Fox 2 weighs in at approx. 19 lbs. and the cost is $105.00 per wheel

They are only available in silver at this time

Cheap!

Are both wheels 50 offset?

Any chance of these ever being offered in gold through you guys? I'd do it myself but NOBODY does powder-coating near me...

Boring... very average looking. Of couse that's my opinion of a majority of Tire Racks wheels.
