I forget the exact numbers but they are weight rated the same as the factory drilled ones used to be (~165 lbs if I remember correctly). I've had the clamp on roof rack and my extended cargo carrier up top for 10 hour road trips with absolutely no problems. So, while I prefer drilled for the sense of security, they do work very well.

Sooo, I had a chance to acquire my dream wheels and was able to make it happen. Volk CE28N in Formula Silver. 18x9.5 +40.



They won't be going on til I'm done snowboarding for the year so prob about a month or so. Can't wait!

Just dropped my Limited BBS off at powder coating. Went with Kinsport Grey for the color. Here's a sample of what it will look like:



Also going to get brake calipers powder coated to match the red/cherry center caps and lug nuts. Should be pretty sick once it's done.

There is no other car on the planet that I'd want as my daily driver. Maybe I'll have a GTR for Sunday drives w the family and occasional use but for everyday life, my STI is the perfect car for me.

Busy weekend. Just installed hella horns with GrimmSpeed bracket and wiring harness.

Also, sold my stock BBS wheels and my Perrin 20mm spacers.

I think I'm going to sell my Michelin Pilot Super Sports and my Continental DWS' and get some Michelin Pilot AS3+ instead of switching back and forth between summer and winter setups.

Then I can use the money I got from selling my BBS and tires to justify going to Cobb Stage 3 with Flex Fuel.

Love the CE28's I would like to put a polished set on my car, but Volk doesn't offer it. Nice numbers too!

Thanks, man. They're my favorite wheels but I still get bored from time to time. You could always get them powder coated or painted whatever color you want. I also like the TE37SL's and the ZE40's. It's like anything else in life, the grass is always greener. ADD is a bitch.

Congrats on the new car. Go to Stage 2 w a tune when you can and you'll be happy as hell.

Update, some d-bag didn't see a piece of tire in the road, switched lanes right in front of me and kicked it up at me and it busted my driver's side fog light. I'll take it apart and fix it in a few days, at least it won't have to go into the shop.

Got my "winter" wheels on but about to throw my TE37SL's on and decide whether to keep them or the ZE40's...

Oh man I'm sorry to hear that but I think you should keep the ze40! Also what's the color your chose for powder coating your calipers?

I had them painted by customcalipers.com. Guy's name is Ron and he's awesome. He tapes off your whole car and paints them without even taking them off. One day job.
