What's good subbie drivers. Im having a hard time making a choice on a wheel. I have narrowed it down to 4. The wife told me is her only mod she will buy for the car. I jumped on it. (I assume she knew I couldn't make a choice and will forget about it) www.adventusforged.com

Take a look and give me feed back.

What color is the car? Looks black by your avatar just double checking.

Wheel #1 gets my vote though regardless.

I like #1 & #4 But aren't you worried what a curb would do to those spokes? I mean they look like they would rip right off being right on the edge of the lip like that. And 19" rims? I just don't think that's right for this kind of car. But what do I know? I'm old.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

im going with #1. I did a car builder on their website and it says 18 inches are availiable. I didn't want chrome but I did want some red. Just some summer wheels because im putting winter studded on my oem 17's. Gotta love these Alaska Winters.

I like the spoke pattern of Number 1.

Honestly though they look overly dressed up. If you were driving some performance exotic then id say go for it, Rims on a Subaru have a pedigree to fill, they need to look clean but rugged enough to do what the car was bred to do. For my money I like konig backbones, they look right at home on a rally car and driving around on the streets.

If I could find a set of OZ wheels that I had on my 89 RX7 turbo 2, that will be great. They are discontinued unfortunately and the people who has them want too much.

I like the spoke pattern in #1,

But they seem a little too Fast and Furious for my liking.

Mosc, that's just because they're not ugly silver and 17"

And brfatal, three years and I still can't figure you out completely. I'll typically agree with you. Except here

It's a style thing, so it's really a... To each their own kinda thing.
