Post I have noticed that...

most of you who changed rims, put on Subaru ones. Why? Is there any advantage? I just put some TSWs (15x7) on my Leg and they look great and my car handles alot better too. If you want to see a bad pic of my car go to my site: http://pages.bolt.com/other/subedude/index.html

Well for starters JC, very few aftermarket wheels have the correct offset for our car( correct bolt pattern, yes, correct offset, no). Second is that a few of the Subaru OEM wheels out there are both light weight and strong compared to alot of aftermarket wheels that are out there. The Turbo Legacy wheels from 91-93 and early Outbacks and late Impreza 15" wheels, the 94 Turbo Legacy and 95-97 Impreza 15" 5 spoke wheels, and the RS and 97 and up GT wheels are all pretty light and durable and IMHO, they look as good if not better then alot of aftermarket wheels( OK,maybe not Speedlines ) Plus alot of times, you can get them super cheap from salvage yards or discount places like Tire Rack and you know they are going to fit perfect. I don't plan on changing my wheels anytime soon just because they don't hamper the performance of the car too much, if at all, and the money could go to something that does hamper the performance( like OEM struts with 115k miles on them ) That's just me though.

(Edited for my usual spelling errors)
