I like em. Looking into wheels myself and came across them too. I'm not into an ALL black though. They come with a great width/offset combo though!

I like the way they look. 45 is a borderline low offset, but it should probably work depending what size tires you want. The weight is a little on the high side, but not terrible (21.3 lbs for 17" or 22.7 lbs for 18"). Were you thinking 17x7.5 or 18x7.5?

Will be using the stock 235/45/17 setup.

They will be all black and we will paint one spoke red.

They're narrower than your stock wheels. Very narrow for 235/45R17 tires. Try to find a wider that stock wheel, no narrower than stock.

Please don't. This is a stupid ricer trend started by Ken Block.

I didn't look it up, I was going by Man Show's quoted 17x7.5" and 18x7.5" figures.

Gotcha. After you said that though I went on their website. It's not made in an 8"+ just 7.5" what a shame...

Hmm, and I didn't even realize 3rd generation WRXs came with 8" wide wheels from the factory. I really need to read up on the specs of those cars.
