Question rim suggestions

im having a real hard time finding some rims for my car, basically looking for 18" fairly dark rims (black wrx) , its a show car so something kind of nice but i want them to be sort of rare, i was looking at the black subzeros with chrome lip and think they are nice but way too popular, anyone have any suggestions on another similiar looking rim or a different one completely that isnt too popular and will look nice on a black car keeping the sleek all dark/black look. pics or suggestions would be great

Some Momo EVO Racer's would look good. Wide polished lip Black or Anthracite center (cant recall). Available in an 18x7.5, 18x8 and 18x8.5. Another option might be a Konig Imagine in an 18x8.5 with 53mm offset. OR look at some of the off the wall ADR/Golden Apple offerings, cheap and effective.

nice wheels here:

www.edgeracing.com

Volk wheels are always nice, or you could get some bbs and powder them.

Check out the Volk CE28N's - they can be found in "titanium" which differs from their "silver" color. Not too common and a nice show wheel

Default Bronze Limix Linea BE5 RSK



I'd sell mine, but I dunno what other wheels I would get. I like the lip, the weight, color, exclusivity (subaru specific), and price (at least the price I paid). The only other wheels I would have gotten would be these:



I guess I'm biased toward deep dish, and bronze...

Yup! Here are all the colors (below). But the wheels are damn hard to get, but it's not impossible. They are 2 piece, forged, and the 17's are 14lbs, and have Subaru specific offsets for 17's and 18's. They come in a 17x8 5x100 +48 for $450 a piece or a couple of 18" config's for about $500 a piece.

I don't know if anyone sells them in the US. Maybe Gruppe-S or Wheeloptions can get them if you don't have a contact in Japan. I still don't understand why people still buy wheels from American vendors...the markups are ridiculous. I got my Lineas shipped + price of tires (both new) directly from Japan for the same price of a set (wheels only) without tax and shipping ! I'd still try Gruppe-S or Wheeloptions since they seem to have the lowest markup...good luck...

Titanium Chrome Battles or Tarmacs.....not enough of them on black cars. They look really good on black though.

Or something with a polished lip is always nice on black.
