Default 17inch Subaru Wheels

Anyone know if there is a independant that imports the 17" wheels that are spec'd on the STI? I know that they are an option in the UK, and am looking at getting take-offs. My dealer quoted me $800 a piece!! Anyone know any cheaper routes. The take-off are kind risky and expensive to ship. I think these are probably the cleanest wheels you can get for the WRX, but for $800, I can get P1's for half the price.

Are you talking about the 17" BBS rims?

If so, I saw them on a WRX at the dealer today (Centaur). They really aren't that nice. They actually look a bit cheesy and cheap. Not worth the $3000+ price tag.

Id honestly consider the P1's over those.

No not the BBS's (I agree, they are certainly a mediocre (sp?)wheel)

I'm talking about the ones on the STI. They are shown on the silver sedan in the Canadian brochure. 5 split spokes simliar to the stock 16" wheel. I'm looking for gold of course.

Check scoobynet

The UK versions get 17" of the "WRX" rims stock. You may be able to find a used set there. (though I believe they're silver)

Challengerdeep or TeaguesAuto may be able to get them in as well. I doubt they will be cheap.

Check the vendor section..... Vivid Racing is selling them for $1300US (or around there) plus shipping and it comes with tires....

Gold or Silver in 17's......
