Default The flat faced wheels on 15+ STi/WRX pics thread

The more I see pics of various wheels on 2015+ STi and WRX, the more I like the flat faced wheels with spokes that reach to the edge of the wheel, with not much step. I think they flow good with the boxier sides of the 2015+ especially when they sit relatively flush to the fenders, so if you have some please post the pics!

I will start with a few examples of what I mean, starting with the factory base 18" wheel which I love, but still find them to not fill the fenders quite enough, so I would like to see wider wheels with flat sides:

Btw if those are pics of your car then props for a nice looking car and wheels







And a pic of mine how it sits as of now

Thanks, at 255 I am guessing this did not require any fender work, right?

Obviously not 15+ but I came across this picture, anyone know what model it is? Supposed to be Enkei but not sure. It reminds me of the RC-T4 a bit, which I love but is a bit harder to find than some other wheels.. I think it would look good on the VA. I think it flows well when the spokes goes all the way up to the lip like that and like the RC-T4.

Thanks, for some reason from this angle I did not think of the Gravel, but might just be. Either way they are only available in width up to 8.5 I believe. If it is the Enkei I guess there is some spacer since it sits so flush. Thanks for your input!
