Default Rota D2 (Gold w/ polished lip) - Looking for a new look

I've had gold STi BBS wheels for awhile now and the whole looking like an STi look is getting old (I've got foglight covers, STi hood scoop, and STi splitters - but WRX spoiler). I want to make my car its own car and maybe get rid of the BBS wheels and go with the Rota D2 in gold w/ polished lip.

I can't seem to find any pictures of these out there. Does anyone have them in gold? If so, can I get some pics?

I may be the first...

That's how I found out about these wheels. They only have two pictures of them on there and it's with the black wheels. I seriously could be the first

My taste might be a little different but I really like the looks of the D2. I think it may be the 2-piece aspect to it....whether or not they are actually 2-piece doesn't really matter to me. I'll get in touch with subydude

We haven't sold too many sets of the Royal Gold D2's however there are WRX's out there with them on. We havent recieved any pictures yet, so be sure to post up pictures once you get them on. We are pretty much giving those wheels away at that price.

it's posted on their site that they'll only fit on 03-04 wrx's. i didn't think the brakes on the 05 were any different than the 04's.

Here are some pics of mine. I didn't get very good feedback mainly because the spokes make the wheels look very small and the tires look huge. The tires look huge also because they are 235/45/17. However, I've had them on for 2 weeks now and I'm starting to like them Later on when the 18" Rota D2's come out, I may go with the black and polished lip look
