I got silver because I have a silver car and gold looks good on blue, white and black. I bought them used from the classified section. With tires that had about 30% useable tread, I paid $1100. No curbage, no scratches.

225 are fine with STi wheels on a wagon. The 070 are wider than most 225 and they still clear fine.

depending on suspension you can probably run 235's(for sure with stock suspension), i have 225's on my rotas, and bbs have a better offset.
