After careful consideration, I've nailed down my two choices for 17" wheels. I'm going to go with either the UK 17" Gold OEM wheels or SSR Integrals. As you can tell, I like the five points on the WRX.
I think the 17" UK rims weigh 17.7lbs. Anyone know how much the SSR Integral weigh?
I don't think 2 more pounds is too bad to increase to 17" Subaru wheels, but I was considered SSR Competitions at a mere 13.5 lbs for drag racing, but I realized that, to me, they just don't look right on the WRX.
Vivid Racing carries them in both silver and gold for $1199 for the set. If you want gold they have a special going on now, $1399 gets you the rims and tires (215/45/17 Bridgestone RE 011's) and includes 5 day delivery. I've come across a few other sights that had them as low as $250 each. As you can tell I'm looking at these real hard myself. I like the fact they are OEM, and are pretty light (around 18lbs), and look great on the WRX. The link above will take you to the home page. Click on products, wheels, then UK OEM.
go for the integrals or something else. those suby rims are real heavy, and there is a lot better stuff out there for A LOT less money. over $300 for tims, you better be getting something much better (or larger or lighter) than that.
I got the information from this sight which only gives a link to a picture of the wheel. I've been looking myself to find the rims at this price. This sight has a information on many of the different rims available for the Impreza.
Dark Rex. The Euro rims as far as I know really aren’t that heavy. The US spec 17's (different from the UK 17's) are around 18-19lbs, I cant see the Uk rims being much heavier. The P1's if I'm not mistaken are 21lbs. I was considering these until I saw the weight, 18-19lbs is as high as I will go.
I hate to break it to you but all 3 of those wheels you posted are pretty much crap if you are concerned with weight. With the ALT 7s being the worst. The 17" OEM UK rims are lighter than any of them. I have no idea about those other Subaru 17" rims, I haven't seen any wheel weights for them. I wouldn't pay 318/apiece for them though, that's nuts. If you are concerned with wheel weight then the SSR wheels are the way to go. I like the 17" OEM rims. I myself own 17" P1s, but I plan on going with something 16x7 and lighter when I autox/track the car.
