Potential noob dumb question. I'm looking to get a new set of rims for my 2012 STI to save hassle changing the tires in summer and winter. I'm having trouble deciding what to get, don't really want to do any extra modifications and I just want something that looks good, is safe of course and will last. I became frustrated with the complexity of decisions regarding sizes, offsets, etc. so called Subaru to see what a new stock set would cost. They're around $900 each - can anyone explain why they are so expensive? Are they that much better than aftermarket rims that seem to go for anything between $150 and $350 each?
If they are, should I look to get a cheaper set of rims and use those in winter, and keep the stocks for summer?
