    The '04 STi wheels go really fast so you would have to watch nasioc regularly if you want some nice ones. Another option is BBS RK028 that came on some bugeyes and saabarus. They are a lot rarer but no one is looking for them so the ads stick around (try craigslist). Also they are cheaper ($100-$150 ea) because they are not forged and don't clear big brake kits (Subaru 4/2-pots or brembos etc., they do clear the H6 rear mod though). IMO they are nicer looking, but that is just my preference speaking.

    Here are some pics on my car if your interested: http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/everyd...my-mods-2.html

    You know, I never figured that out exactly. The Saab wheels were discussed as RK028 in a few threads but it looks like an error. The technical sheet lists RK029 and others for Saab, but the are all listed as 5x110+... not 5x100 or 5x114?? See pg.44

    Anyways, I am 99% RK028 were only made 17x7 et48 5x100 as specified below. Searching the PDF only give RK028 under the one Subaru heading (see page 46).
