Rim Question...

I'm looking for a set of Black Rims that look good and perform good too.

Any recommendations? (size, style) - they will go on Silver 05WRX Wagon

I've got Enkei RS6 on my wagon for the street tires...when I track it I use Volk TE-37's and both look awesome

Im even more jealous of you now Matt, rocking TE-37s. I will probably forever run some type of Rota rim. But its tough to beat their price.

If you want to add some tire width too and you have a wagon, the key is maximizing offset. +48 is great for a sedan but borderline for a wagon if you want 225 wide (225/45/17 or 225/40/18). Ideally, find some high offset (48-55) choices.

yea i'm jealous...but i guess not everyone can afford rims that are $600-$700 a piece ...even though they are worth it. finding a set of Volks at a scrap yard is like winning the lottery.

man let me tell you...I didn't believe they were actually mine for a few weeks I kept thinking I was gonna wake up and it was a dream...but +1 to mosc I think +50 is the best fit for a wagon
