Default Enkei RP-02J pics on a WRX?

I've always liked the RP-02s, but I never really considered them since they're so old school...they go way back like the SSR Integrals! Heck, after seeing the price and weight, I'm buying 'em!

First off, does anybody have pics of them on a WRX? Also, has anybody had any problems with them or heard of anything. The spokes are pretty thin and I was just wondering if the wheels are susceptible to bending.

I was set on RPF1s but wasn't 100% sold on the styling, and the RP03s look hot but they're more than I'd like to spend. I think the RP-02s would be just about perfect for me and my tight budget.

Thanks!

**Update**
Well, it's almost a year later and I finally got 'em! I'm very happy with the wheels. A nice bonus is the wheel/tire combo is lighter than stock. I took a few pics which I'll add to the bottom.

I"ve got RP02s on my WRB rex. I'll try to get a pic to you... email address? Just email me and I'll send one back - hwy79ky@alltel.net

BTW, love the wheels. No problems with cracking, or damage. No track use, but very hard driving on back roads (we have many in KY) - killed as set of Yoko AVS - ~17k on em so far, tires shot. RP02s are the best bang for the buck in my opinion. 15.7# ea. I bought a package from Nino to get mine.

Here's a couple for you. I use the wheels for autocross, but this is a non-autocross picture.





I hope this helps in your decision.

B-Kerr and omahasubaru,

Thanks a lot guys, I really appreciate the pics! I'm now sold on these wheels...they look awesome on a rex. Those are both 17s right? If so, they actually look bigger, like 18s because of the design. Very nice, my search is finally over!

I figure I have a few more months of life left in the RE92s which should give me plenty of time to save up for and find a good deal on the RP-02s. I didn't think I'd be able to find wheels I really like at this price, I'm happy to not feel like I'm settling for something. Thanks again.
