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?

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.

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.
