    08' subie noobie.

    Proud new owner of an 08 Dark Gray WRX Sedan. Luv it already.

    Looking for the best price/performance compromise on a new set of rims, in anthracite (Dark Gray) What do most put on Subarus when they are watchin the $$$?

    I'm a gadget guy, so eventually I think I'll be playing around with the engine management, so what is a good way to ease into that?

    If looking for cost saving/ quality wheels look into Rota wheels.
    www.oakos.com, im sorry but i am unsure of the bolt pattern you will need.

    Nice dude, I wanted a dark grey car but there weren't any very near that had the options that I wanted. Hey just a question, do you hear a rattle in the back deck in the interior when the motor is lugging? It almost sounds like that plastic deck is vibrating on something.

    No rattles, but my car was a demo with 2k on the odometer, so It may have been fixed if it was present.

    I found some pretty tight Wedsport rims, but it looks like they are discontinued. TC002 or TC005 or something like that.

    those prices on oakos arent' anywhere near what I can spend on wheels. I'm looking to get a set of 4 for $1k ish.

    Here it be:




    Will it take 225/40 by 18s?

    Actually, I really like my rims. I wonder if I could get them powdercoated the body color?

    Ahh, I'm heading to the stealership today so get it looked at.

    I assume the new cars are the same bolt pattern as earlier years???? Can I fit 16's? I need to put some winter rims on my baby, won't be this year but hopefully next.

    Im a big fan of that color.

    Also im pretty sure most Rota wheels on that site will run you less than 1k for a set.



    www.subydude.com also seems to have every set of rota wheels you can imagine

    I really have to say, that is a great looking 08.....love that color. I am a bit bothered by how much I am starting to like the 08's.......my wife will kill me if I trade in my 07 for a new one....
