    Looking for new rims, suggestions?

    Ive decided to stop having my tires swapped every season, and just go for a set of summer rims this spring. Im looking for stock measurements for a 2006 TR, just with more style. Any suggestions or advise would be great. Thanks people.

    i dont know what your price range is but i like enkei nt03 / rpf1 's, rota DPT's, oz ultraleggeras

    there are many many many different wheels. we could be here all day naming different ones. i suggest maybe going to tirerack so you can see a variety. (they also have a tool where you can see what they will look like on your specific car)

    Price is a huge factor.

    Try and find a used set of 04 STi BBS's for that price.

    Other than that you're probably going to have to go used for a decent set of wheels to be honest.

    Here is a link to TireRack with some options:

    Would rims in this price range not be very durable? Just wondering why you recommend used stock over something like these.

    These look alright. Not a bad price either. Are rims in this price range something that till begin to corrode quickly or anything?

    The main reason to not buy low cost wheels is construction e.g: "Construction: Low Pressure Casting". Personally I wouldn't put anything but forged wheels on my car.

    Why? Is it dangerous? Do they break or something?

    A quality wheel (think OEM) will last the life if the car. You don't need forged but you do need safe. Look for a TUV or at the very least an OEM supplier.

    Example: three, if not four, of my cars came with Enkei wheels from the factory. Never had a problem. I'd buy Enkei as a result. Also BBS, Speedline, Team Dynamics, OZ, MSW, etc.

    Your wheels are already nice. I'd consider a used set for winter or even steels for winter. Just IMO.

    Rota aren't quite the deal they used to be so I'd go Enkei.
