3g 08 WRB WRX - What color wheels?

I'm going to be investing in some wheels shortly but can't figure out what color looks good on my car. The new body style is throwing me off. I have a 35% tint, everything else on the exterior is bone stock.

You asking about color or style? Like a multi spoke, or just like a 5 spoke? Or also color?

More of color. I've decided in my own mind that it looks best multi-spoked.

I'd say it's a three way tie between gold, bronze, and silver. I don't imagine any variation of black or gun metal would look especially good on a 3G WRB WRX Sedan, but who knows... I'm sure somebody out there could pull it off though.

People always go with the gold color. I honestly think white would be a good option for the car, but thats just me being different. Nothing like a clean blue R34 with white TE's on it. I know you arent in a skyline, but I have seen a couple WRB with white rims and it doesnt look bad to me.

Hmm, yeah.. I didn't think of that. Blue and white is always a good combo. Only problem with white rims is they get covered in brake dust and road grime very quickly, so you pretty much have to carry around a container of moist wipes and rub them every other day to keep them looking fresh.

WRX Wheel color

I had an 08 Blue WRX, then and 09, and picked up my new 2010 Blue WRX yesterday. I have a set of Tenzo black with a red outer lip wheel and you can't believe how many times I get asked by fellow Rexie owners where I got them. I just joined today and will post a pic soon of my Rexie soon. I keep them stock except for the wheels and tint the windows. Waiting for the new very cool 2011 to be out soon. If I could find some green or orange wheels I would get them. My friend put my car on his computer and did different colored wheels and those two colors were way to much but can't find any.

I have an 09 which I'm trying to decide on rims too. For me its between dark gold or black with a blue lip on the rim. I do have to agree on the multi spokes thow.

you can find the orange, green and a sharp blue rim ( to mach the wrx blue ) on Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels

Good Luck.
