Default 17" STi BBS rims for '04...

Anyone know of some replicas that are out there? I mean, I can't seem to find these rims besides looking for them at the dealer. I've seen two ads on ebay but both are for 05 WRX only.

Anyone know of rims that look very similar? That would help too. Thanks

Why not look for used ones? They sell for under $1000 without tires, a little more with tires.
By the time you buy new replicas with new tires, you would pay the same as that.

04' and 05' WRX are exactly the same as far as wheel fitment goes, in case you don't know.

The only difference I know about is that the '05s are 1/2" wider at 17x8"...

The Rota Tarmac II is fairly similar to the BBS wheel.

If anybody has a pic with some Sti wheels on a silver wrx that would be sick. also do the Sti wheels only come in the bright silver finish and gold? I think i have seen a darker gun metal out there somewhere 2, maybe they were painted or something.
