Default CGM with other than Stock rims?

Does anyone have pictures of Crystal Gray Metallic WRX or STI with rims other than the stock. I saw one wagon with bronze rotas. Also what opinions does everyone have on color choices for this car. I cant decide silver, black, gunmetal, bronze, gold. No idea whats gona look good, so looking for comments and pics.

I got an extra set of stock rims and had them powdercoated a medium grey. they didn't come out as metallic as I expected. Rota SDRs are supposed to be out soon for the '05; hoping to get them in steel grey for winter.

nope - subzero's don't fit over the brembos either. Rota is coming out with a few new designs that fit the 05STI - specifically, 17x8 and 5x114.3 with clearance for brembos. Check out this thread for more info:


I'm eyeballing the first set of Bronze Boosts that come out.

Wondering the same... I'm stuck between Gold Subzeros, Gold Boosts, Gold Torques, or Hyper Black Torques.
