i'm probably going to use my work's as my winter wheels.

anyway, i want something 18 x 8 or 18 x 8.5 and under 20 lbs

so i'm asking for ANY suggestions for any kind of wheel...what do you think will look good on my car? price does not matter, but nothing extreme

i'm going to mate them to a 235/40/28 falken rt615

please post a picture of what you suggest!

i'm thinking volk ce28's black with polished lip right now, problem is if they even have 05 sti fitment.

The LE28N is no longer in production

the RPF1 doesn't come in an acceptable offset yet for the MY05 and it doesn't come in Gold yet.

I like these in 18x8 +44mm


size is perfect, offset is perfect, and the 8" is ideal for your 235s

Plus you'd be the first Subaru with them in the states :D

EDIT: if you wanted 8.5" they have that as well. same offset. which would work as well.

EDIT2: retail is ~$640 a copy BTW.

what are these called? Never seen these before but I agree completely, they would look great AND you would be original.

and that is the same "Face" as the subaru fitment so it is a pretty good representation of how the wheel would look.

there are 2 faces available for this wheel the first one (the one I posted) is the one that clears Brembos (with the correct offset of course).

all of which are discontinued.

any other colors on that?

the pff7 look awesome.
the only "standard" color on the ME is Mercury silver.

As with all Volks you can get custom colors but they are either 50 or 75 extra per wheel.

Pff7s are great, and inexpensive. the Gold looks awesome. and the offset is nice, all though a little high IMHO if you have coilovers.

Rays doesn't make them anymore.

they are still on the shelves or on boats somewhere.

every rays wheel has a build date on it, check the build date, it'll be at least 2 months earlier.

unless of course your friend works for Rays :lol:

Wheel whore, question for you sir. What is the most durable and reasonably priced wheels out there for our cars? Do not include BBS and Volk.
What are you going to use these wheels for?
