Rim ideas.. need opions please

Hey guys i have a blue 2008 5 door WRX and im thinking about putting rims on but im undecided on which ones would look nice, and which band is good and what not. Here are some of my ideas

GIANELLE® VALENCIA Wheels - Gold Rims

KONIG® FEATHER Wheels - Gold Rims

XXR® 006 Wheels - Black with Blue Anodized Lip Rims

I would also like to know if i could fit 18's if i keep it at stock height..thanks

XXR's are junk among other things. Konig makes some legit wheels. And sad to say but you can fit much bigger than 18" wheels at stock height.

I like the Konig's personally. They are a good brand and have been around for a while. Also don't cost an arm and a leg.

In my opinion, you could put any gold wheel on a "World Rally Blue" Subaru and it would look good.
