i was so close to buying those wheels for my wrx as well. but becaue of my car being wrb, i didn't. i've seen the wheels on white and gray wrx's and looks awesome, but i'm not a fan of them on wrb. if you were to get them i'd pick the gunmetal color. and they look 100x better if your car is lowered.

+1 for "work" wheels
+1 for being originals, not rotas
-1 for being cast and semi-heavy

its your choice...but if your concerned with weight, you could do much better than the works

what type of driving are you planning on doing? Is the extra couple pounds REALLY going to be a problem?

I went with the Rota Torques which are replicas of the Emotions and I love them. 17x8 Hyper Black on my CGM WRX.

If you go with the Works, bronze or gunmetal will both look great on your black car

Bronze look good on black
Gunmetal is more of stealth look

Black + bronze looks nice, and I doubt you will notice the weight difference... they are not TONS heavier... but they are the same as, or heavier than, the Torques that impersonate them. So getting Rotas is actually fairly functional in this case.

(I like Rotas and would not think twice about buying them)
