Got new rims, 18x8 Rota Tarmac III's

Well I really hated my old rims and I ended up finding a really good deal on these Tarmac III's so I bought them. The wheels and tires have 1.5k miles on them so they are basically brand new. One very small rock mark on one of the wheels. The last pic is the wheels I used to have.

I like it a lot better! Wheels flow with the car now.

Still love my 4 rings, but now all I see is stars.

I love rota's , I had them my escort zx2 , I lost 8lbs a wheel with them . I wish your car was lowered , and I notice your rear end is dipping low,,,,you must have a sub box in that trunk .

Agreed, the Rotas look much better. I like your front lip a lot too. Also, don't forget to update your vehicle info in your profile!

Are those Hyper Black? If so I'm running the same wheels. Your car looks very nice, congrats on the new wheels.

Thanks. Yes I have a really big/heavy sub box in the trunk. I would lower my car, but for where I live, its just asking for headaches. And yes wrxman, they are hyper black.

Looks great with the whole setup. The uneven wheel gap kills me too though =(

Big improvement. You could get a saggy butt spacer from paranoid fabrication to even the rake out.

What do you think about these?

I am looking at the drag wheels. Tell me what you guys think. The gold rims on a blue wrx.
