There's not much to go off there.

What do the caps say? Any pictures other than a tiny thumbnail? Any markings on the inner barrel/hub face of the wheel? Wheel specs?

Nothing. I found the image when searching for 17x8 5x100 subaru jdm. I wish I knew more but that's all I got.

I spent a couple hours all over google. I found a few other posts for the same type of wheels. I found a higher res picture of another set where the caps say Subaru. The problem with all of the ads that I found are that they blast keywords to get views so you can't track them down that way.

The only potential clue I found was a random part number on eBay starting with GD. I have no idea if there is any significance to that or if it is even legit. Also being a 17 inch wheel I have to believe they're post 2000.

Closest I could find were Volk Daytonas.


Time to fire up Forza 7 and look at the wheel options...

I'm a big fan of five spoke wheels, and these do it. So highly adequate in terms of proportions and clean looks.

So I know these aren't it. But very similar design and probably easier to find

http://rotiform.com/products_cast_1piece_nue.htm


Based off of the center cap style in the original pic, they look like maybe a sport edition or konig (especially the lug holes and the smaller drilled holes between them, konig does that a lot.) The center caps look like the bulky type that sticks out, not the typical flush mount subaru center caps.

I could be way off, that's just the feeling I get from squinting at them. They definitely have an early 2000s era look though

They are kind of similar to Prodrive GC-05F wheels, with thicker spokes and a different rim.

I have no idea who makes those wheels but something similar are the OEM Jdm legacy bg5 gt-b wheels 17x7 +53

Here's an eBay ad where you can look at closeups.

Those wheels are unfortunately too low offset. I wouldn't go less than +45. Also I am after the width of spoke that lets me easily reach in and clean.

Yep I know about those. Would like something wider than 7.5 though.

Those are cool looking, but 7 width with a 53 offset would be a little too sunken.

I'll give you that, they're more a mk4 VW fitment than a Subaru fitment.
