Question Specs on optional BBS Forged Wheel for WRX?

I have a set of the BBS option wheels and will be posting the sale later this week, anyone have the specifications on this wheel, or know where I can get them?

All I know is that they are 17" x 7.5"

thanks,
-J

Nope, those things are rare as hell. I've seen a BUTT-ton of Subarus and have only seen one set of those. It's a local guy who works at Sears with a bone stock WRX and has NO IDEA what those wheels are about.

I'm an idiot, and was of course thinking of the OEM STi wheel, I should have known you'd know Jon, oops.

17x7 53mm offset 16lbs 5x100 of course

I know I have a set e-bay baby

And I know what I paid for them, you should get as least as much for them as the sti bbs' They don't clear ome of the brake kits but they're awesome wheels.

SOA doesn't have any specs for these wheels, and I'm looking for proof of what size they are. I've heard lots of conflicting information, and I need solid proof to give to SCCA.

17 x7 +53 sounds right. I have the specs at home, but not here at work.

Check the backside of the rims when you get a chance. It'll be there.

Yeah, I dont see too many WRX's with these rims on them. I see one everyday though...


And yes they clear my Big Brakes...


I was thinking of selling my set, but the tires are so new still. Im pretty happy with the look on my wagon, but its a little too narrow for me.

I'm looking for the wheel with the subaru part number 28111AE060

I don't have these wheels so I can't check.

Memory is vague, but weren't these port/dealer installed options? So illegal for any stock class, IIRC...

These wheels were dealer installed for '02-'05 WRXs - making them illegal for stock SCCA classes. However, for '06/'07 WRXs, these are a port installed option and WILL appear on the window sticker.

The port is deemed by the SCCA as an extension of the factory - making these wheels stock class eligible for the first time.
