I have no idea where you heard that, but that's not true according to Tire Rack and Enkei. You can't get the wheel perfectly centered based on the lug nuts alone.

It was off the lift for about 25 minutes. I don't think the suspension will 'settle' any more. The close-up pictures of the wheels definitely exaggerate the amount of wheel gap. In person, it's less noticeable, but I still want to lower the car by about an inch.

you have to post your pic to an online host first, and link from there. Linking to your desktop doesn't work.

Have you guys seen any pics of a 2015 WRX w/ the R205 wheels from Japanparts.com?

These are the ones I mean, 18x8.5. I don't know the weight. I'm thinking of getting a base WRX so I can afford $2000 for wheels.

Dude! The nurburgrings! Excellent choice! They look sooo good. They were my original choice for my cwp but I've changed my mind so many and made over 20 photoshops haha...

The nurburgrings look great on a silver car. i like them alot but i dont think the color is right for the dark gray.

i had originally considered the Enkei TSP6 and may still go that route for cost reasons but i believe i've settled on the OZ Leggera HLTs. Damn good looking wheel; the bright racing gray should look good on a DGM car.

http://www.tirerack.com/upgrade_gara...ight+Race+Grey

i had a heck of time gathering the info but they are available in 18x8 et45 5x114.3 so they'll work on the WRX

EDIT: i dont know why i thought the color was graphite; changed to gray/DGM

if i actually bring myself to drop 350/wheel i absolutely will! they are around 18 lbs; thats as good as it's gonna get for that kind of money. any less weight and you're looking at 600+ for a set of forged japanese wheels...silly for a DD i think

Yes very happy with the look of them. they fill the wheel wells nicely. pics dont do them justice. I just need to lower the car an inch and it will be perfect I think.

Tint is all 20% with 5% on the rear window.

Where did you get the tint done and where did you order the wheels from? I'm also in Ottawa

Keep looking, I ordered Konig Oversteer for $150 each and they weigh only 19.6 pounds. IMO, they also look really good also. $200 more per wheel for 1.6 pounds does not sound too good of a deal.

$350 per wheel is pretty rich for my blood lol

Hey! General Auto Glass on Clyde did my tint. They have tinted a few Subarus for me now. They do phenomenal work and they have one of the best prices around. Car was done for under $200 including the front windshield brow. Sure beats the "Accessory" type shops that want upwards of $500 to do the same job with mediocre quality. I ordered the wheels off Amazon that linked to BuyWheelsToday.com.
