TSW Snetterton look alike?

I'm more than sad TSW doesn't make the Snetterton wheel in black with a 5x100 pattern, and I'm on the prowl for a look alike. Any help would be appreciated as I'm upgrading in the spring for sure! I've found a few close but nothing with a nice lip on it like the Snetterton has. Any ideas?

Have you seen Rota's 18x9.5 Linea Corse Lemans? (5x100/e30/73)

The lip is probably too small for your tastes, but it has a similar split 10 spoke pattern. They also have several 19" offerings.

Yeah I've seen those John. Def like them but Rota wheels are just VERY played out in the Subi world IMO. I def like the split 10 set up though and that's the look I'm trying to stay with for my Rex.

The wheels manshow posted are way too aggressive for a Subaru. Unfortunately the only way to get a big lip on a wheels is excessive width and running too low of an offset. You CAN get some lip in proper sizes, but nothing remotely like in your 1st pic.

Oh I know that lip on the pic isn't possible for me lol... it's just a reference of the wheel itself. But I'm about doing things once, the right way, and with the right products balancing form/function. You'll never see 10" 32mm wheels on my car lol! I'll be going with an 18x8/8.5/9 but DEF no wider! Depending on width it'll be around a 40mm offset. Width and offset can be better determined once I know what wheel I wanna go with and options are available.

I like concave/convex spokes as well. I had Stern ST1 wheels on my 350z and absolutely loved them! Not the right wheel for the Rex though

Stern ST1
18x8.5 25mm & 18x9.5 25mm
3" rear lip & 2" front lip
Here they share the same offset on a staggered setup but due to the wide rear stance on the Z it looked bada$$

I used to be a fan of the chrome rings.... Just not anymore... not sure why. I had those Tenzo's up there. They were just heavy. I've learned from the past.

Look at Enkei's.... Even Motegi.

Yeah at 23lbs they're a little chubby. Even the TSW is 22lbs. Bunch o fatties lol! And I just don't like ALL black wheels. There's gotta be something else going on. Doesn't have to be the whole lip.

Have you checked out the OZ's they used to make something like what you are looking for. I haven't checked in awhile as i not looking for wheels but the set of superleggera's i had on my 02' looked awesome.

Your link is dead but I did look at their site. Is it the ST8 your mentioning? I actually like that one. I've found something identical to that in black.
