2004 STi sold :(

Default Why not MB Motorpsort Boost?

First of all, will they fit a 2004 STi?

I'm assuming they are heavy.
Are they any less quality than Rotas.

I really like wheels that are simple to clean, have as few spokes as possible, and have spokes that extend all the way to the perimeter of the wheel. I like Rota SDRs, just wish there were less spokes and that everyone didn't have them. I don't want to spend more than $700.

I was looking into these for my 04 Forester XT, they come in a 17X7" with 5/100 and a +48 offset, so basically identical to my stock wheels in offset, just wider and bigger. I love the look of them, they're exclusive to tires.com.

Definately heavier. 22lb for a 17x8 vs ~18lb for the same size Rotas IIRC.

Most racers would strangle their mothers to get 4lbs of rotating weight off per corner.

Do they only come in 17x7? I bet it won't clear your brakes.
