I've got a grey 07 sedan...
I recently bought Volante's, only to find they won't clear my calipers on the front wheels. grrr.
So, take two i guess..
Considering Tenzo's. Anyone have any experience with them?

try to stick with near-stock offset. That will help your handling as well as your fitment. The stock offset is +55. I suspect that the rims you are looking at were not designed for a Subaru or other high offset car. In other words, I'd recommend you care more about the specs than the looks/logos.

Can't really tell how good a job you did but from the picture I think it looks much better than the gold.

Thanks! I tried to get some better pictures, the rims a little dirty. I definitely like them a lot better than the golds, I wanted to get a red lip but that would have been difficult on these rims.

+1 looks good ! I was thinking of painting my stock ones black. Do you have any pics of the old stock ones on the car before you decided you didnt like them.

no sorry :/ I only had them on for a day, they didn't look bad at all I just decided I liked the 5 spoke look a little better. I think this is a picture of shoefan's car with the stocks painted a flat black



hopefully this will give you a little idea

Car looks great!

If you want to see what it will look like you can use wheel tape. At $8 you cant go wrong!
Moving Graphics Ltd, Vinyl car graphics, Motorcycle decals and rim tape, Printed mug specialists - Universal Wheel Rim Tape Stripes

(THIS WEBSITE IS FOR MOTORCYCLES, i know they have it for cars but im in a hurry and cant look up the website right now)

##Im getting a White WRX sedan 2009 and im thinking about painting the stock rims black and using white or blue rim tape. What do you think?##

#The engine work will be blue also#
