    I've always disliked the hella flush fad (many long time Subaru owners do). Do people not realize that these wheels are entirely too wide for practicality and that running a low offset is actually detrimental to handling and the life of your suspension components?

    I like the grids don't get me wrong, but the way they look on your car its almost like a big clash. I dunno I thought about getting the grids....kinda talked myself out of it though. Never the less homie if you like them, and you think they are the best than more power to ya.

    Other than that I think the wheels are nice.

    I like the way it looks, what is your suspension setup? Coilovers? Springs?

    Looks decent. What are the specs on the wheels and tires? They sure look like they would rub.

    +1. I think they look terrible. Being flush with the fender is one thing, but sticking out past the fenders and having to run a stretched tire is something else entirely.
