New wheels.

The world of wheel is vast but I think I've narrowed down my choices to these two, what to people think? Has anyone seen a scoob with them on?

Re: New wheels.

I do like the top ones, but as fiveskin said the bottom ones do look nice just a shame they have the red lip to them. They also do that finish with a yellow lip to I believe.

Not going overboard with the car, full de-cat, sti spoiler and inter scoop, wheels, lowering springs, better anchors and a re-map. That does look a lot actually!?! What I mean is I don't want to spoil the look of the car but would like a bit more power out of the wrx block until the insurance goes down enough for purchasing an sti.

haha this is the reason for my black wheel fetish... laziness!


surely you can get those ultralite ones without the red lip?
i always just think the red lip looks a bit too 'american'.

Re: New wheels.

yeah you would have thought so huh! I'm gonna drop them a mail and see if they do, if so I think i'm sold! If not then the gun metal finish ones. To be honest with the amount of brake dust my pads chuck out the gun metal finish will end up black!

Will get some pics up when I have them, not such a cheap month after all!
