    I think these look the best:



    On a serious note, MY03 B4 rims aren't gold. They are an almost identical colour to "Titanium" WRX rims

    Ronal Bears. Awesome rim.

    I found a set for my old E30 BMW going at an awesome $75. I really wanted to rock up to a track day/drag strip with them on

    Everything else go aftermarket

    how about no you crazy dreadlocked ba$tard.

    what hendo said. MY03 B4 and MY03-05 WRX rim colours are almost identical. the B4 rimsa sure as she-ite aren't gold. if you're at the cruise i'm sure you'll see what i mean.

    i've said it before - silver rims on a dark blue car would look hot.
    MY04 lib rims ftw.

    failing that, teddy bears are hot. by hot i mean they should be burnt along with carby turbo sigma's.
    I AM BE-PEE!

    Nope they were straight off a members white B4 that was pictured on either here or OzLiberty (I can't remember which).

    All rims were taken from pics posted up eithere hee or OzLiberty. I'm seriously leaning towards the MY 02 WRX in silver, although B4 rims powdercoated would look awesome if I didn't have all the silvers bits on my car.

    I just detailed the car the day of hte photo and the stock rim colour looks a lot better in real life, so I'm going the WRX rims (as that's what the GenIII GTB also happened to have when it left the factory in JapLand).

    BTW, Hendo, who's the clown you photochopped into my car, as it sure as hell isn't me and doesn't look like any of the SA crew (or at least recognise).

    Cheers

    I think you should chose one of the these: MY02 WRX Titanium, MY03 B5 Golds, MY04 GT Silvers.
    How you will chose is the rims that come the cheapest. But, those rims look good better than my gx rims.
    What's the difference between a lamborgini and a pile of dead babies?..... I don't have a lambo, in my garage.

    My pick would be the B4 rims....but I'm biased. I have a similar coloured Lib with the B4 rims and love 'em! I think the colours contrast well, it all depends on if you like the style.

    B4 rims aren't gold. I tend to call them bronze or champaign in colour/shade.

    Alternatively - you could consider gen2 Legacy rims. 5-spoke in that bronzey colour with a slightly different style/cut to them.

    Nob Jockey,
    how about not digging up 3 year old threads, and callling other's gits when you haven't been here long enough know which way is up!!

    I posted up another thread after i got the rims with a few mods done, and also my conversion thread (which is now way old) had heaps of pics of the rims in that.

    Mods,
    please close thread.

    Cheers
