    wheel suggestions...??

    I have a 2004 San remo red WRX, and i was planning on purchasing wheels and tires for the spring, Can anyone just leave their opinion on the color of rims i should get, or even any pictures of wheels on a san remo red wrx?? I was thinking like a gunmetal, or steel gray, but also people have led me in the direction of gold or bronze. Any suggestions welcome thanks.

    Black with a polished lip is by far the SEXIEST on red.

    I don't know what bronze/gold would look like on red. Gunmetal would look real nice though

    here is a pic of my ride with gunmetal wheels. I definitely gotta do something about the gap, but I like the color a lot on red. Sorry for the bad pics, but you get the idea. Good luck with your decision.

    are you happy with that color you chose for your wheels, or would u now prefer something else? Such as gold or silver, im going to be getting them in a month or so and i still cant decide. Im getting alot of mixed opinions, mostly with gold and gunmetal with or w/o polished lip and they are 2 totally different colors so im stuch

    I'm definitely happy with the color. I got a killer deal on these so it made my choice easier, but from the get go I had wanted either gunmetal or flat black. I think Bronze looks tight too.

    i havn't even seen a san remo or sedona red wrx in person, just online. I bet they look better in person. Good luck with your purchase. Did Tire Rack have san remo for your car. You can test different rims and sizes on different color rex's to give you a good idea of what to expect.

    yeah i havent either, i looked on tire rack but i guess it always helps to see it in person, im sure u know what i mean. I dont have my side skirts painted on my car so when i saw the gunmetal i noticed it looked pretty good even though his side skirts were painted, but then i thought if i were to get gold, if it would look better with side skirts painted and bad without them.
