Yeah I was actually just about to edit my post about the center caps. That clean, flat style is what I'm looking for as well. Those wheels are a bit out of my price range, me thinks, unfortunately.

yeah, i prefer them over the 57extremes maybe due to the thicker and straight spokes, here is an OBP with them, not a fan of the corny tire stickers though

Yeah. they definitely look good. They will be on my list for now. Hopefully a vendor will get me a good deal and I can jump on them. Anyone interested in my oem's

Don't hate me for bringing up Avids haha. But Avid av20's are pretty close to the 57xtremes, actually bought a set for my lapis. So if budget is in mind, these are a steal #brokecollegestudent

Unforunately, it looks like the GTC01RR's won't clear the brembo's, so I would to run a spacer. Which is something I do not want to do. Looks like the 57DR's are back at the top of the list.

I actually ran a set of Gramlight 57xtreme's on my 13 wrx. Great set of wheels. I am not too fond of wheel companies that take other brands designs, but the avid price's are definitely appealing. For me, I tend to want to go with something a bit more quality when it comes to wheels since I know they will take everyday abuse and the car will be carting my family around. I don't feel comfortable putting parts on the car that make me feel uneasy and could possibly endanger myself or my family. Granted, I've seen a few Volk TE37SL's bend right in half before, so it can happen to anyone! Either way, the Avid av20's look like a solid option for sure!

Interesting. I tried to pause the video to see if there was a spacer and it is hard to tell. It may be the hub though. Either way, it looks great!

I mean...you could always go back to classic NT03s, just saying! I actually just picked up a black set.

Or...the new NT03RRs?

The nt03's come in et40 and doesn't clear brembos. Next offset is et27 and that is very aggressive. Would have to dial in some serious negative camber and really work the fenders to ge them to fit properly. More work than I am willing to do on this car. If the et40's fit with no brake issues, than I would for sure throw a set on the car, no question. Still one of my favorites.

The new RR's I am not a fan of. My favorite far about the nt03's was the small lip it had. The flat faced RR's look strange to me. Very similar to the different sizes in the RPF1's. I can't stand the smaller sized/lower offset rpf1's. However, I love the 18x9.5 et38 look.

One other option is Enkei GTC01 or if you can Source a set of Enkei RCT4 both clear Brembo with no spacers 18x9.5 . I totally understand your dilemma and understand how annoying it can be to source and decent set of wheels that clear Brembo.
Good Luck I hope you find something you enjoy. In my opinion skip the 57DR, just wait and find a set you enjoy.

Pic of GTC01 18x8 just for reference. I'm sure 18x9.5 will be more aggressive

I like the 57dr's. They were one of my top choices all along. Most likely will go with them since they price is reasonable and I enjoy the design.

I am not a fan of flat faced wheels. The GTC01 and RCT4 are too flat for me, IMHO. Just not my style.

There are plenty of wheels that I like that fit brembos with no issues. It's just a matter of biting the bullet and forking over the beans for them. I am trying to line up my suspension decision as well, so I can knock it all out at once. Enkei caught my eye with a few of their newer designs and thought I would see if I could find a fitment that would work with the STI.

SSR GTX01 18x9.5 +40 is another good option. One I'm considering. I love the silver color they offer.

I follow him on instagram. Looks great, but his are 19's. The 18's in our ideal offset are pretty flat faced. Still look good and actually on my list as well. I prefer them in black though, but that is just me. I always prefer darker wheels. The silver does look great though!

Oh wow didn't realize those were 19's. Looks like an eBayer stole his photo lol. What's his insta? I think anything in between black/hyperblack and silver would looks great with your car.

@JOELGRUENBERG

It will be hard to get a wrong color on Lapis (unless it's obnoxious). I just prefer a gunmetal or stain black wheel. I really enjoy the gunmetal color of the tc105n's. It looked awesome on Satin White Pearl.

Thanks! Yes those look perfect with that color. I'm looking at the same color for my pearl white Fiesta ST.

great looking wheel. Same mindset as well. not a fan of the cutout with the white in it. Cutout is fine, but would prefer it being all one color. But 18x10 et36 would be the size I'd go for. Would look super beefy!

I follow him as well. Great looking setup, but not what I am after. Besides, I already ran these on my WRX. Looking for something different.

But, I like my volks even more, haha.

Volks always win! I too prefer the OEM base wheels over the limited. Once of the reasons why I didn't go with the limited in the first place. But I knew either way I would be letting the OEM's go shortly after I bought the car to get something new.
