    The unofficial STX wheel thread

    I'm starting to look at 17x8 wheels and figured I'd pass on what I've gleamed thus far- approx weights/prices/offsets

    I've kind of cut things off at ~ 17 lbs

    In no particular order

    5Zigen FN 01RC ~ price $200, et 48, 17 lbs



    Motegi Traklite ~ price $275, et 45, 14.5 lbs



    Weds TC105N ~ price $375, et 42, 14.8 lbs



    Kosei K1 TS ~ price $240, et 45, 15.5 lbs



    Enkei RS+M ~ price $280, et 45, 16.0 lbs



    Enkei RPF1 ~ price $240, et 45, 15.5 lbs



    OZ Racing Ultraleggera ~ price $265, et 48, 17.4 lbs



    SSR CS ~ price $400, et 49, 15.0 lbs



    will be adding a some of Volk's offerings soon

    if anyone knows of any other wheels- 17x8 in the 17ish under range LMK

    Motegi Traklite or Volk's (expensive ) Can't overlook the weight difference from the others. I am surprised the OZ's were in the ~17ish range; thought they would be lighter.

    If you're not shifting, you're just riding.

    I totalled my WRX

    Will that fit the wagon with the rear fenders rolled?

    I think so- most of the offsets are in the mid to upper 40's so that puts the wheel a little outboard (offsets some worry on inboard rubbing) over stock. With fenders rolled, combined w/ a shorter tire (the 235/40/17 is roughly .5" shorter than stock), firmer rear springs and "decent" neg camber (-1.5ish) - it should work

    With some light fender rolling, my Enkei Tarmacs 17x8 +45 and Flaken RT-615 235/40/17 fit just fine even with -1.0 neg camber in the rear.

    Sadly the 17x8 Tarmacs are no longer made (some 15/16" sizes still)

    They were replaced w/ another wheel (RC-T4), but about 2 lbs heavier

    If you get sick of the wheels let me know

    I just took the plunge and dropped a $1k deposit down on these in 17x8, 5x100 +42. Should have them in January or February.

    Not sure as I have plenty of time to think it over. Likely the RT615.
