Got the new wheels on, and there is some serious wobble :-/ gotta go back tomorrow and get me balanced and whatever.
Update: ended up getting the xxr 522's but two of them were completely f*^ked. Ordered from NLMotoring.com and they have explained they won't return them, but I can get replacements. I want nothing to do with these wheels anymore.
Took car into discount tire 5 times for balancing, and rotations, and finally to a Subaru dealership who figured the wheels were casted wrong.
Really sucks cause I liked the look.
I miss my speed6....until I get into the WRX! Though I knew that engine up and down but mostly cause I had to do something to it ever other weekend. The best thing for that car was a new turbo and HPFP and your engine blowing worries would be over. I never made it that far, it decided to set it self on fire!! Oh well it helped me get into the WRX so it worked out in the end.
Sucks about the rims, I just ordered some from discount tire hopefully I have better luck with them.
That sucks, they do look good.

I totally hear you on the speed 6. I loved that car, but it was getting high on miles, and I had to make a choice. :-/
Welcome, good to see some familiar hills in the background. There are plenty of meetups from folks on ClubWRX, pay attention to the regional forums for drives and get togethers.
I decided to dispute the charge on my credit card, and have decided to return them anyways. Very disappointed with NLMotoring. Very happy with discount tire and GO Subaru in Denver though. Mad props to both companies.
Whats going on,
New to Boulder/ Denver area and have had the STI for about 4 months previously had an 04 WRX. Like to mountain bike and snowboard and just kick it...
So far the credit card company has issued a temporary credit and its under review. They want to just refund me for the two rims that are out of round. Which in any other industry might be acceptable, but what am I gonna do with 2 wheels other than try to sell them myself? I won't get the money I paid for them back, so that's unacceptable. Here's hoping they come to their senses.
Still waiting on the final credit to come through. Any idea what I should do with the rims that aren't straight? Would they still sell to a drifter or something?
