So I ended up picking up that set of 05 STi BBS wheels...Today I just went ahead and threw some new 225/50/17 allseason on them cuz 2 of the old 225/45 on there were pretty beat up.....I've prepping them to paint white.

Here's what they look like from previous owner...dont ask, cuz I dont know what the heck he was thinking on that 4th wheel. :lol:

You should have taped off the lug nut holes, or you could scrape the paint there before you mount them. Paint there can crack and chip when the nuts are torqued down.

Look good though.

Yea I removed the paint off the lug seats already..it was just on that one rim..the other 3 got taped off.

Finally got them on....WRB w/ white 05 STi BBS wheels....as you can see from pics, there is alil overspray on tires, I had them taped off and covered with newspaper but seems like some slipped thru, will scrubbed the tire walls to remove.

Weather was nice down in Wichita yesterday so had the STi washed! Wheels are stilll looking great. Brake dust comes right off. Noticed on 1 of the wheels, I got 2 very minor chips from road debri but stil very pleased. Now Im debating whether to sell them after the golds go back on. Have my eyes on some black wheels for next winter available locally :? .

May take u up on that offer..what's size/offset? Also I may pull the tires off the BBS to swap over cuz the 225/50s will put me at same diameter as stock 18s. As 45 series, that most 05-07 STi's run, will throw speedo off by 3mph..hit me up and we can make something happen.

17 x 8, et 45. We'd definitely have to swap tires regardless, I'd be painting them, plus I run 245/40's. I'll hit you up as I get closer to being home...about 3.5 weeks out right now.
