Hey.

Well, what kind of design are you thinking about? If you're looking for something similar to stock, the SSR Integral is a nice 5-spoke design that comes in a few different diameters. www.tirerack.com has them.


I personally like the OZ Superturismo, too.
It's very popular on the Subarus, and if I decide to go gung-ho with my car, I may get a set. (Ignore this pic's white color--unless you like it!!--as I'd rather opt for silver or "anthracite.")

Okay, for reference's sake... I've found a picture of the OZ wheels I like. This is actually a Prodrive design, built specifically for a Subaru offset. Picture courtesy of Rallispec, a Scooby tuner in New Jersey.

I like the looks of the Oz Prodrive. Any idea as to how much they would cost. Any other ideas. I have seen several on our sponsor sites but they seem to be quite expensive.

Hmm well those particular Prodrives are the Subaru-only offset, so they wouldn't fit. I know that OZ has put out a new variant of the Superturismo, looks almost exactly the same... and you can get it in at least a couple colors. I'd check with TireRack!

If you can wait 'til you need tires It's my understanding you can buy both tires and wheels from Tire rack and they will be delivered mounted and balanced.

click on my link in my signature.. i have 17" volk TE 37's that are dark grey... these would look awesome on your car.

They are lighter than stock, and look pretty.

goodluck

I liked those OZ wheels that Pepe showed on the other board.
They looked good and were super light.
They are suppose to be out in December and have an offset that is S2k friendly.
But I don't have a pic.

I cannot go past these:


But at $US2400, that's like $AUD4000 before tyres. Owww.

An Australian company do a copy which were on special for $AUD350 each, but, guess what, not in our offset.

So I'm saving the sheckles. Maybe I should start a charity: Wayne's Wheel Fund (is WWF taken? ).

Ohh, forgot to mention, they're from our benevolent sponsor below. "If you have the means I seriously suggest you pick some up" -Ferris (sort of)

I agree. I love those wheels but at 2400 it is a bit too steep at the moment. Any other ideas?
