Impreza WRX New silver O.Z. Ultraleggera's on WRX (pics)

For all of you who were considering these rims, here are a few pics of them on my car. (I know Tire rack's pics sometimes do not do the rims justice) At 8" in width, they do a very nice job of filling out the wheel wells and offer up a ton of brake clearance. Enjoy!

I am currently running Subaru 4pots and they have tons of room to spare. You could probably fit any big brake kit under these. Lots of room.

I have a set of those Kosei's for the track. Nice and light, but I would not want them around any potholes.

I was a big fan of the Superleggeras, but these Ultras just don't seem right to me

I think the spokes are a tad bit thin and the spacing between each set of spokes seems too far apart maybe?

The Superleggeras are nice too. I had a set of those in silver on my old RS and liked them very much. However, the angular lines of the WRX match the Ultraleggera's a little bit nicer and since they are an inch wider you can fit wider tires and bigger brakes.

I kinda like them... Some pics of the matte graphite silver on a WRB sedan would be great, though. They look good silver-on-silver. I wasn't a huge fan of the Superlegerras, strangely enough, but I like the Ultra. Its made it to my shortlist for not-winter wheels. The Gramlights 57S, Weds Sports SA-90, Ultraleggeras and Prodrive P1s are battling it out for which gets purchased around march or april.

^^^^ Good choices! I was torn between the Gramlights and the Ultraleggera's myself.

word. But its a choice between function and form. SL don't clear Brembos, these do, are lighter, and are an inch wider

I love gold wheels with >10 spokes. Silver ones, there are nicer designs elsewhere.

i dont really like these that much compared to the superlegs. i think they are too "thin" and they make me think of a spider.

In his defense, I did post that pic after the fact so that he could see them with the 4pots.

They kinda look like Torques from a distance. I think I like the Superleggras more.
