Rims Opinion

Just wondering what your guys' opinions were between these three sets of wheels. Which you think would look better on an 05' WRX (SILVER WITH TINTED WINDOWS) and if anyone had any pics with either of them on their car, doesn't matter what year. Looking to buy a set for the summer and kinda stuck between these three. Thanks.

I would have just posted the pictures if I knew how, oops..

MOD: Made them images and moved to the image forum. Also, you misused the "beating a dead horse" emotion which drives me bonkers so I changed it.

The first and third one don't have enough offset and the second one is 19"... all three would be bad choices IMHO. Looks are not as important as a) fitting b) getting a good tire for c) weight d) price

You did catch that the shipping on one of em was $200, right?

i didn't know about the fitting or anything, but I honestly didn't realy like any of these choices, even though i said earlier that they are sweet, maybe for a different car they wuld be nice

If any I would go for the style of the first one, but like stated, not a good offset.

if i were you i would look into rota wheels. they seem to offer nice budget wheels for the suby community other then that go with something known. those first ones look like gram lights.

the other two seem to be so blingy.

1st set, powder coated black, and no ghey chrome lip. Nothing like a silver car with all black rims and dark tint.

Still love my 4 rings, but now all I see is stars.
