be careful not to buy wheels that weigh more than your stockers. Unsprung weight is the enemy.

My wheels range from 16-17lbs based on offset. And the 04 wheels where lighter than the 05 wheels I believe? For an sti that is.

Wish I could find the grassroots article easily about increasing rim size and still running faster just based on grip even though the wheel was heavier. I agree tho inspiring weight by the hubs is the best place to lighten your load. Just funny how you can spend 2000 bucks on rims like mine and still be heavier and not as good of quaility as the stock bbs. Ssr semi forged. Bbs forged. Bbs lighter but not as wide. Ssr hot titty fucking donkey ball licking Asian lesbian beast of a wheel yet stock gets lookEd over all the time.

Love the PF01 and depending on which size they are actually lighter.

If you want them new, best place for rims around here is top secret in Chicago.
