One reason I don't like the sub zeros is that everybody and their mama had them or attacks when rotas first came out.

Sub zeros cause they have a spoke like the stock WRX wheels but more open easier to clean and they just have a nice clean look to them.

You don't like the formula mesh? I'm thinking about picking up that wheel in a week or two.

Yup, 17x7.5's...riding on STI pink springs...looks kinda tall in that picture...must be the angle...

By the way - WRX_02_227 - nice looking Suby...

Default sub zeros

More people have sub zeros I think, but I too like both the formels and the subzeros. What made me get the sub zeros was I wanted a dark rim with a polished lip...I dont think formels had a gunmetal with polished lip...and I dont even know how that would look on formels...

but sub zeros have simple lines and are easy to clean.

Here are mine in 18, on stock suspension (before I went to SPT springs).

Im a sucker for mesh wheels. But I dont really like the Rotas, I like Enkei's or BBS's mesh wheel better. Each has like 1 less spoke, making them simpler and less busy as someone put it.

Formels are very nice, but after cleaning the BBS wheels... I know the Formels are 5X more a pain in the neck to clean...

I like the Zero's with polished lips Mm.... Do you think black zero's & polished lip would look good on WRB Sti?
