The stock rim are "ok" but i guess everybody will sooner or later end up changing them..

So which size/model are you craving for ?

I love the looks of the Konig Hurry/Tuner2/Feather

Think I might go with the 17" Hurry Black, debating if I want to keep with the stock tires or go with the 225/45/17 Falken Azenis

I'm actually in talks with my local dealer for toe following rims in order of preference.

1. Enkei FS01
2. Prodrive GC07
3. Prodrive GC05

Looking at gold/bronze, sizes 17"x8" and offset less that +43 for future brakes plan!

The problem with the FS01 and GC07 is that they don't really come with the offset i need, so i'll probably need to use a spacer. I'll see how it goes.

Well, to mine WRX (which has Spark silver metalic colour) I have ordered 18" Prodrive wheels. I think will look kinda fancy but it not remind much about rallying.
At least It will have much more aggresive "look".
So its gonna be this

with that


Of course those wheels im going to use in summer. Now the winter is comming I'll stay with stock 17".

Reguards.

PS

The colour of the car on the picture is "steal something something..." so with mine Spark silver I'll have more contrast with the car and the wheels.

Last winter i was having fun doing donut with my wife Cressida (Dead 7MGE... maybe 1JZGTTE some day)

This year will be even more fun to troll around the parking lots on snowy night !

I plan to utilize the stock 17" for winter duty and picking up a set or 18/19" for summer fun. Not sure what I'll do yet, to far away to think about. :)

Agreed: I actually stuck with a 17" diameter, albeit in an 8" width. I felt that it offered the best combination of ride comfort, performance and reduced weight. IMO the stock wheels are really heavy: I wasn't expecting to notice such a dramatic difference with the Enkei NT03s but the in-gear acceleration and pick-up is noticeable. I think that for those of you who are going to go up to 18s, pay close attention to the weight (although, in an 18" size, lightweight wheels are kind of pricey)

If you're going 18", i recommend going for volksracing. their rims are one of the lightest around. I had better performance and better fuel consumption after changing to my volksracing CE28NF on my previous ride.

I'm going to mess with everyone around here next summer and put on some '99 rs rims! It will probably look funny, but they have pretty good summer rubber on them and ought to autocross pretty well. 7 1/2 X 16 inch rims with 225/45 Kuhmos ;D

I think the OZ Ultraleggera are pretty sweet. These wheels have pronounced lines just like the sides of our cars. They are also not all show as they are 18.6lbs at 18" X 8". These rims are constructed by low pressure casting and shot peened for added strength. Anyone interested in wheel options should check out tirerack.com to view them on his/her vehicle. Here's a link to the wheels: http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Whee...=Ultraleggera&wheelFinish=Bright+Silver+Paint

I also really like the Motegi Traklite 2.0, owned them for my Integra, but unfortunately they aren't made in an 18" 5X100. The traklites are forged which is even better than low pressure casting and I know that their 17" X 8" weigh in at 14lbs.

Are you going with a specific color on the wheels?
