If you like the style you have, which to me arent that bad looking at all, you could just paint the ones you have. What style/size do you like or looking at?

metroscub is more helpful than not
can you add a " ] " to the end of that? either that or I cannot see another pictures posted. But as far as black rims go, i like a lot of the rota wheel choices out there. I am currently using 5zigen FNO1r-C wheels on mine with 235/45/r17 Falken Azenis tires and love them, my only complaint is that the way the spokes go back towards the hub before touching the lip, so it makes them appear smaller than they are, but they are well served as race rims.

How bout some Volk TE37's????? they are only 740 bucks per rim w/o tires

Wow, it can turn well too?

Im running Rota Boost on mine. In gun metal, 17 x 8 cant beat the price and I do like the look. TE's are awesome, but like mentioned retarded expensive.

chickenwingo, I'm usually a big fan of gold wheels on a black WRX/STi, but the wheels in that pic look like they belong on a Mustang. I vote switch em up

Thanks for your help guys those volk rims are so sexyy but so freaking expensive, I'm only 17 so im looking for some in the 500-1000$ range which I know isn't that much. What do you guys think about the agency power strideseven rims? Only $200 a peice.

Here they are

I used duplicolor wheel paint and they turned out way better than expected, I know they have black, white, silver, bronze, and like a gunmetal but im not sure if they have a gold paint, although im sure you can find it somewhere

I used Rustoleum when I did my rims... It would have turned out better if i actually took my time. The rustoleum has a bronze/gold that looks just like the STi BBS wheels
