it looks like it needs lowering a bit, and with 2 inches of height gone the top pic IMHO would look good.

WHY does everyone keep saying that ! it is lowered I'm just messin with ya but it is lowered I have KYB Gr2 with whiteline springs the wheel gaps are even and she sits lower.


It depends on the picture I gues and were the car is
the top pic is without springs and struts the lower picture has the springs and struts.

Massachusett's road sucks EVERYWHERE doesn't matter what town it has pot holes and with all the snow we got this winter if my car was lower I wouldn't have gotten home on a few occasions.

The WRX wheels look a LOT cleaner and more fitting for the car.

i think the WRX wheels look better.
i'd sell the others and get some 6 spoke RS wheels (IMHO).
then you can have winter wheels too.

You know whats missing on your car. You need a 97+ front bumper cover, its and inch lower, but its way more agressive looking. I did it to my 95 and it looks way better.
Peace,

Rex rims are the only way to go.

I have them on my red Legacy as well. Those wheels seem to look better on a Legacy instead of a WRX.

Well I guess its rex rims everyone thinks thats the way to go.
As for some of the comments The Rex rims were or are my winter rims I bought the RS5 years ago they were cheap came with tires had free shipping and got rid of the 14" steelies. I might be interested in some new rims I have to get rid of the old ones first. Thought about the RS rims might be interested in some down the line.

or these rims... or car

Well see you there!

IMHO 97 GTB legacy rims polished would be better again.

think you are just bragging cause you have TWO sets of custom wheels... You know how many I have for MY car?!? Zero. Luckily the outback limited has decent looking stock wheels, but they aren't all that fast looking. I want the 17" subaru wheels or some of the wheels being sold on hotsubaru.com...
