Oh man, those are pretty sweet. I'd love to see a set of those on a Foz.

"UPDATE"

A few new 2008 wheels where added.

I kinda like those new 10-spokers on the '08 Rex. Best looking thing about the car, perhaps...

Saab 9-2x BBS RX 17x7 are only 16.5 lbs?
As I recall, closer to 20lbs?

Yes, an RX is over 20 lbs. But those are RK's and weigh 16.2 lbs, at least according to this site.

The 17" BBS RKs in the pic are mine- to be honest, I'm not sure about the weight any more, but when I dry weighed one before having the tires mounted, it didn't come to 17 lbs. (using the highly scientific "hold-it-cradled-in-your-arms on the bathroom scale" method) that I could see, so 16 pounds and change might be true...

You can add these to the list if you'd like.


17x8
et40
5x100
16lbs I believe.

Made by Rays, specifically for Subaru, and were an "OEM" wheel.

I miss my turbo, and my 6-speeds of fun.

Nope, wrong bolt pattern, and tires are a little small.

You never know, there are actually 3 sets of the RSZero's in the US, one less than the FSTi wheels, but you may see a set of those up for sale in the near future.

04-06 Forester XT
16x6.5 +48 offset (Clears some 4 pots)
17 lbs

FYI - I would recommend revising the weight on these. I just dismounted my R comps from mine and today using a digital scale that's consistently accurate they came out at 19lbs four times in a row. 02-05 WRX wheel came out at 16.2 lbs which is what they should weigh.

Also, I test fit them on an 06 WRX with 4 pots and it was a no-go over the fronts. Are there different 4 pots in the US market ?

Fixed! Some people have used the 4 pots that have the "subaru" printed on them and they clear. I believe they are black. The ones with the RAISED subaru don't clear.
