Question New Wheels/Tire combo

Hey all, I own a 05 WRX Wagon and and thinking of getting some new wheels. Found a local add for a set of 18" OZ Prodrive wheels for Subaru WRX, includes Nitto Neo Gen tires, spline drive lugs for $375.00. Doesn't list the offset and Don't know much about wheel and tire combos so any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated. Was also looking to powder coat them to a flat black for about $65-$70 a wheel at a local shop.


Thanks Sickboy

Do you have stock brakes on your car ? <-- Offset killer

The Prodrives are nice wheels. $375 seems REALLY low. Find out the width of the wheels and the size of the tires.

Is this close: FS Florida: WRX OZ ProDrive P1 18" - NASIOC

Be wary for the price.

Ok guys, went to see the wheels today. Tires are in decent shape, about 75% tread remaining, one tire has a slight bulge. The wheels themselves are in good shape w/sum minor curb rash. Also found out they came off an 04 WRX Wagon. The Tires are 225 ZR40 18 Nitto Neo Gens. I took a look at the numbers on the inside of the wheels and this is what I pulled off of em. Can some please explain what the numbers are and what they mean, and last but not least think these are a good fit for my stock wagon?

offset is +53, the size is 18x7.5". The rest is model information.

Those tires are horrible btw, in case you cared. He bought them because they're just about the cheapest things you can find in that size.
