You should consider TWS T-66F 18x9.5 40+. Pricey forged wheels at $845 each, but looks mean on the the new WRX design.

At first I thought you meant TSW. I was about to say, I don't think they are forged and that pricey haha.

Good looking wheel, but too rich for my blood. While I do love quality wheels, I don't like knowing I am cruising around on wheels that are nearly a 1/3 price of the car. Most i'll spend on a wheel is around 2500. Anything more, I would feel too guilty haha.

haha yep that's what I thought of too when I first saw these wheels TSW?? Yea I know what you mean, I would feel guilty too spending money that can go paying down or off a car.

I don't mean to flood up your thread on wheel suggestion, but maybe bite off Overland style and consider these:
SSR GTVO2 18x9.5 +45



Right in your ally in price, $441 at evasivemotorsports.com, maybe cheaper somewhere else.

I'm sure he's already considering those. I'd go +40 though.

No worries! I welcome to pictures and discussion. That's what this journal is for! I enjoy the conversations and suggestions.

Yes, the GTV02's are on my list. I would go with the ET35 offset though. I do like these wheels a lot, but I think I am still swaying towards the 57dr's. I need to make a decision soon because someone is buying my OEM's!

Hmm I guess the source (SSR) could be wrong or out of date. Interesting.

Either way, it's a good option that I am considering.

Definitely. My friend has the +45 on his STi and they look great. The flat, off colored center cap looks insanely good and "special" imo.

Sorry maybe I didn't skim through the pages thoroughly. I was going to say the next offset down is +35.

57dr's are a nice set too. Pretty sure whatever you choose, they will go well with your STI. Good luck with you purchase!

Check out ravspec or evasivemotorsports, if you haven't already.

Nice! Yeah the caps looks super nice. The one thing about the gramlites is they don't come with any and the ones they offer are cheesy.

Thanks for the help brotha! I have checked all my sources for a set so it's just a matter of picking which ones now! Ahh! Too many choices.

OR

I'd kill for a set of te's. Although, with a second kid coming in a few weeks, spending 3k on just wheels would probably put me in the doghouse

There is always that, but as I said earlier. I tend to shy away from wheels that would give me anxiety driving on. While I don't like to sacrifice on wheels that are poorly design/engineered, I also am not baller enough to rock 4k wheels on the daily. Keep in mind, I am in NJ and this set of wheels will be my one and all. They will see rain, snow, salt, etc. I'd cringe seeing the TE's get destroyed throughout the winter months. Maybe down the line when I can swing 2 sets of wheels, but for now I will be more than pleased with whatever I choose in the 1500-2k zone.

Not to mention our second kid a few weeks away and home renovations/improvements going on. Adulting at it's finest. As irresponsible as I am buying things for a diminishing asset, I tend to think I am rational with my spending habits elsewhere. There is a line for all of us and for wheels, spending 3k+ is that line for me. At least for now

sorry if I missed it, but why wouldn't you keep the OEM wheels for a winter/ all season set up?

Ideally that would be the route most would go. However, after being in the car world for many years I've realized I don't get the full benefit of having separate summer and winter wheels. I drive like a grandma for the most part, but once in a while do some sprinted drives. I ran all seasons on a few sets of wheels on my previous WRX and had a hard time differentiating the differences between a dedicated summer tire and proper all season tire. Yes, I know there are differences. However, the car is driven on the street 100% of the time. It doesn't see any track time and there isn't any place on the street where I would be getting the full benefit of summer tires.

Having 1 set that can do it all is extremely appealing to me. No swapping of wheels each season or worrying when the temp is going to dip below 40 degrees for good. I just have a hard time justifying the price of having 2 sets of wheels when an STI on stock power isn't anything to write home about. It's quick for the most part, but it isn't anything that you needed dedicated summers for. A really good all season is more capable than you think.

I remember I took a buddy out in my WRX that was stage 1+ on michelin A/S 3's. Took him on a spirited drive to show him what the car was capable of. We both drove/drive m3's and have had our experience in some serious cars before. He was floored by the grip and overall handling of the car. I had other supporting mods (coils, sways, etc.), but the all seasons performed higher than any of our expectations. At that moment I said I wouldn't buy a summer tire again unless I was doing autox or tracking.

Just my own personal opinion and years and years of experience. Would I enjoy having 2 sets? Of course I would. But I just don't find the need for it in my use of the car.

I had a set of Mag Blue 57Dr's on my hatch. I love that wheel. Wish they would make them in 5x120 - would love a set for my F30.
