    Newbie looking for new wheels / advice

    Hey guys,

    Im looking to get a new aggressive look to my 2011 wrx. I want a kind of spokey type wheel set with a wider stance that can make my car a little more aggressive. I was looking at the BBS RS's. Problem is, the fitting / bolt patterns are all messed up so it wouldn't match. But I'm looking for advice on what I would need to do to get rims like this to fit and also what it would take for them to fit without messing up the performance of my black beauty. Let me know guys. Appreciate the help.

    Gabe

    Can you give us an example of the type of wheel you are looking for, "spokey type" is pretty vague. Also, what do you do with your car? auto cross? just a DD? May i suggest looking into Rota, they have many variations of wheels in the 5x100 lug pattern that will fit your wrx. WHEELDUDE.COM has all the rota wheels. Also, depending on if you are going to stay at stock ride height, or if you plan on lowering your car or already lowered it, you need to be careful on how wide you go. Check into local shops that can roll/pull your fenders if needed. Another thing to look into is the offset of the wheel.

    17x9 Rota Grid - Gold (5x100/e42/73) Wheeldude.com - Professional wheel dealer.

    These are the wheels im getting for my car. Just an idea for you. The Grids are a very popular wheel and look great on our cars.

    Im looking to get rims with a machined lip. I'm not sure if this is going to mess up breaks or anything like that. Its a daily driver too. I like the bbs RMs and LMs.
