Exclamation Volante and Muteki?

Hey all.
I'm looking at a set of rims by Volante for my grey '07 rex.

VOLANTE Wheels - Buy VOLANTE Wheels Online at Victoria Tire & Wheel

Does anyone have any experience with this brand or has anyone heard anything about them? I just want to make sure they're a good buy.

Also, with those I'm planning on using red Muteki lugs. Any experience or thoughts? Right now Duranuts are too expensive for me. Also, what size lugs do I use for the Subaru?

Thank you!

I haven't heard anything about that particular brand, but they look pretty cool. You might want to find out the weight and offset of each wheel before you purchase them. The only other thing I might be concerned about is all those tiny little silver/chrome rivet-looking things around the outsides of each wheel... they're gonna be a pain to keep clean (if you obsess about that kind of stuff like some people do).

About the lug nuts - no clue.

LOL..... I've never heard of those before. Although I'm not going to say they are good, I dunno if they are "bad".

There is a guy on post with an 05 running pretty much those same rims on his blue WRX. Dont know if they are the same brand, but look exactly like that.
