    New SYMS Wheels, Kind of

    I believe Crimson Inc (makers of Sparco and Limix Linea) now has a stake or strategic relationship with SYMS. Hence the use of the Sparco and Limix Linea forging equipment....

    SRWC03: Bronze, Silver Metallic, White 15.9lbs
    156.5/5H-100/+35 MSRP $205/each





    SRWC01: Bronze, Silver Metallic 15.8lbs
    177.5/5H-100/+52 MSRP $250/each




    SRWCO2: Bronze, Neo Silver 16.6lbs
    187.5/5H-100/+56 MSRP $309/each

    I like the SRWC02's. I've become way more partial to the "deep dish" look. I just like that effect it gives. Makes the tire/wheel look bigger (read, wider) to me. Not too heavy for 18"s either. Thanks for passing the info along.

    No Prob....

    The SRWC02's are actually the Limix Linea BE4 RSK's. However, the paint code has changed and the bronze has turned more to a gold color. Also, the Limix Lineas are 13mm deeper than the SRWCO2's and has the lip painted to match the spokes. Oh yeah, the Limix Lineas came in a +52 offset, but these come in a +56...

    Oh if you want deep dish, check out the Kyoho Circular RS. These the deepest wheels that will fit the WRX. They are similar to the Work wheels, except that these are 2 piece and forged for 14lbs on the 17's.
    They come in a 17x8 5x100 +48 for $450 a piece or a couple of 18" config's for about $500 a piece.

    whoa, look y'all more info! Thanks.... You know I think (for my personal tastes) that those latest ones (the Kyoho's) are too deep for me. I like the others better I think. When I get ready to get some wheels (I long time from now ), I check into these. Thanks again.

    This is the deep dish look...see how there's a lip to it and the spoke are kind of in the rim...giving it that "deep dish" look...

    yep, what WRXin' said. The easiest way to picture it, is to think about the good 'ole American muscle cars at the drag strip. The back tires are HUGE, to say the least, and the lugs are located somewhere around the middle to back of the rim, thus the tire "sticks out" from the mounting plain of the lugs. Hope that made sense. I probably just confused you more.

    Re: Re: Prices

    Oh yes...

    I can source anything very easily. It's only shipping prices that are prohibitive on the larger items. Which ones do you want? I can at least get a quote for you. FYI, wheels aren't items that need the ridiculous $800 minimum customs fee. I'm guessing about $80 for shipping on a set. For reference, I was quoted for under $1700 shipped for my Limix Lineas.
