Default SSR GT2 Wheels

I have a 2004 WRX Sedan, and I'm considering buying some gold 18x8 SSR GT2 wheels from tire rack. Anyone have any experience with these?

I don't have any personal experience, but SSR's are quality wheels. I know quite a few guys w/ them and Tire Rack has some killer prices on them. The company went belly up but some other Japanese wheel manufacturer took over.

I just picked up a set of 18 x 8.5s for my STi. Nice and light and they look good. I am taking them to the track this weekend, we'll see how they do .

One of my all time favorites. I periodically search for a 17" set in the for sale forums. Good wheels.

I agree - just a great looking wheel, a little heavier than the SSR Comps and therefore probably stronger - very clean design.

I noticed that their prices have gone down recently - being discontinued or dropped by TireRack because of low sales???

In any case, 18x8.5 ET48 5x100 now down to $309 each in silver:

if the 17x8.5 size drops to the same price, I may have to roll the fenders and break out the credit card...

.
And I thought I got a good deal at $329 each...

Wonder if they have a 30 day low price guarantee with themselves.
