Default Falken Wheels

Anyone out there have any experience with Falken Wheels? I'm looking for rims and tires on a budget, I was already leaning towards Falken tires anyway, but I started seeing these wheels. Does anyone know if they are decent? Previously I was planning to go with Rota Sub Zeroes

Here a link: http://www.wheeldiscount.com/product.phtml?p=551

The are listed as fitting Subarus... maybe the site got it wrong? I kind of dig them, but I can't find any info like weight or anything about them.

A couple of them arent bad looking but they arent in particularly Subaru friendly offsets as Uncle Scotty said. +45mm in a 18"+ wheel is as good as it gets it seems.

I can tell you that they're heavy. No numbers yet, but really heavy.

That's the 15" Hanabi. It's the only 15" wheel and the lightest that they make. They weigh in at 11.5lbs each.
