    '13 wheels on a '05?

    Just recently picked up a 2005 WRX, been looking at wheels and thinking about keeping it OEM over a replica brand. Scowling Craigslist for long periods of time. I've stumbled upon 2013 Subaru wrx wheels 17" 5x100 Anybody done this already and have suggestions if it'll look good or not. Possibility of painting too if I were to buy them.

    Let me know, thanks!

    Thanks for the link!
    It doesn't look bad I've gotta say that much. I'm been dreaming of 18s on the side of looking at this option.

    My car is the Rally blue
    If I were to go this route I'd consider painting them a gold color because you can't go wrong with the blue car gold wheel combo on the Imprezas.

    The 18s that I'm looking at are STR 514s. Thinking about the 18.8.5 on stock suspension (as of now) Anyone know if I'll have issues with that size and suggestions on tire size to use?
