    Rota Torque

    That's what I'd go with if I went with real aftermarket wheels.

    As opposed to fake aftermarket wheels?

    $349.00 for the hood and scoop. I want the CF trunk but it's 649.00 retail, so expensive but that's because install is harder and the fabrication takes longer. Someday i'll get it tho. Time for wheels and engine management. Does black rims look better than gold rims, or black with chrome lip look better on a silver car, I need opinions!

    Thanks

    I like the Rota G-Force in gunmetal... IMO that is...

    **EDIT**

    Oh... I also like the Rota REV, they come in black with a polished lip... If that's what you're looking for, also gunmetal w/ polished lip.

    so rotas are real wheels now?

    i second whoever voted on enkeis...

    if you want REAL wheels you need some gram lights, volks, ssrs, etc.

    but if you're just going for cosmetic, why not just go with the ebay special. i'm sure you could find some to go with that mad tyte hood.

    I'd go with 17" x 7" wheels. Normally I like 18" wheels, but I really think 17" wheels look better on a WRX. They're also lighter. I also wouldn't go to 7.5" unless you're planning on adding a decent amount of power to the car. You can get plenty of grip with the AWD with the tires that will fit on 7" wheels. Unsprung weight is your biggest enemy!

    If that hood weighs 7 lbs then my name is Shirley. Maybe 17 lbs, but not 7!

    lets not get started on the neverending battle of "rota: real wheels or ****ty wheels"

    everyone has their own opinion. there are tons and tons and TONS of subie owners who can fully vouch for rota. some people like volk. some people like OZ. some people like enkeis. they're all good wheels.
