Just purchased a 2018 Limited WRB WRX and would like to get some golds rims. Currently looking at the O.Z. Ultraleggra but would like to see a picture of them on the current WRB. Open to other suggestions too! I am surprised, I couldn't find a gold rim thread. Maybe we should start one? :)

These look great, but 9.5" wide? What size tire would fit on these?

I have checked out the Tire Rack and Discount Tire sites and there are a couple rims that are ok, but that Subispeed site looks promising! Thanks 4EverMetal!

Now let's see some pictures!

OZ makes great wheels. I'm personally a fan of the Alleggerita model, but there's some bias there.

i ordered my 18 wrx in WRB with the dream of gold wheels as well. i saw those on tirerack too, is 19 lbs too light for daily driving? ive heard lighter wheels are more prone to damage from pot holes, and there is no shortage of them around me. id also assume that keeping with 17" wheels would mean the tire is taller and so would provide more cushion for the wheel against damage?

Light weight wheels can be more prone to damage than an equivalent wheel of heavier weight. However they will be more durable than a crappy wheel that is heavier.

"Good news everyone!" I called Tire Rack out of curiosity and found out that even though the OZ website says the gold Leggera HLT only comes in a 5 x 100 bolt pattern, they actually come in 5 x 114.3 as well! I guess they are a special order. I double checked because Tire Rack's website listed the 5 x 144.3 for the gold. I am glad I did! I am getting these!!!

i think i found my brand. im absolutely willing to pay a premium for a great product, and it seems OZ is just that. i cant find anyone saying anything negative about them. i just hope that price tag is more to do with their metallurgy and less to do with it being "italian".
