I am about to purchase some 04 STI Goldies. Its been hard for me to find any 07-08 foresters rocking these wheels. Id like to see some pictures and like to know what size tires you are running.

The seller wants $1081 that includes Potenzas with 50% tread and one of the wheels has some rash. This price also includes shipping. What do you guys think?

I'm in the process of acquiring a set of these wheels as well.

I'm having trouble deciding on a tire size though.

1. 225x45x17 - ultra performance all-seasons (Bridgestone RE06AS)

2. 225x50x17 - ultra performance all-seasons (Bridgestone RE06AS)

Brad- Since your on Swifts, go with a 225/50/17. 225/45 looks great if your STi height, but it leaves way too much gap on Swifts. Tre36 had really nice 225/45/17s when he was on WRX wagon Swifts, but when he raised up to Forester Swifts the tires looked way too small. He switched to 225/50s and it looks great!

Yep, stock tires are fine on the BBS's.

For good deals on tires, check ebay and craigslist. Don't buy anything with less than 7/32's as it isn't worth the cost of mounting/dismounting (IMO).

I've had several sets of BBS's over the years, usually trade them away or sell them for something else. Great wheels, strong, light, good looking.
