    See Im not concerned with the snow as much as I am with the crap they use to get rid of it off the road, the salt mixture we use up here in NY is absolutely murder on the wheels and body of a car as well as almost anything else on the car ie brake lines and such, thats my reason for the steelies, as far as passing on the savings the guy I deal with is from a local company so I dont know how much help he will be for you anub

    I am interested in getting a set of these as well, but I would like to see what they look like. TireRack doesn't show any photo of them. Will you be kind enough to post a photo of the steel wheels, and if possible when they are mounted on your car?

    Also, what did you do about TPMS sensors for the wheels?

    Thanks,

    You can purchase them from Tirerack as well. I've heard that if you do, you have to have the system recalibrated so that it recognizes the new sensors. If you don't (like I did), the TPMS warning light will stay on in your instrument cluster, but the system will recognize your original sensors once you put your old wheels back on.

    I ended up putting 16" Legacy wheels on mine, with 235/55R16 Blizaak WS70s:

    Forgot to mention. This thread (post no. 4) has pictures of the steelies mounted on the car: Winter tires/wheels for a 2011 WRX hatch - Subaru WRX Forum: WRX Forums

    Not bad, IMO

    As far as the TPMS, I just dealt with the light. It wasn't worth the money IMO to have the light off.

    Let me see if I can dig up some pics for you.....


    here ya go:
    note: these were all taken the week I got my car

    Sorry I missed that post, I did look for photos before I asked for a set. Must have just skipped by them.
    They do look good!
