Hey guys joined a while ago and fell out of the scene for a bit, but I'm back.

Overall really happy with the look and fit of these wheels, not a common suby wheel but I've always liked the fat fives.

I'm sure you're gotta piss off all the audi fan boys (good), but I think it looks amazing!

didn't relize that Audi wheels were a good Subaru fitment. Any issues with rubbing or weird handling? this opens up all sorts of possibilities for cool wheels. audi specs some damn tough OEM wheels. wonder if they fit over WRX brakes? chime in, boys.

Just needed ball seat lugs and 57.1 to 56.1 mm hub rings. Offset is obviously lower so I had to roll fenders, but other than that pretty spot on.

There's been a few people to run these on subarus. And if they fit over lgt brakes, then they fit over WRX brakes.

I always think it's best when a wheel doesn't stand out as obviously not original.   Those hit the mark and do look pretty good.

this. Fat 5's look good to begin with, and go real well with that stance

Fat fives on my profile pic. Lowered 99 OB. They're pretty phat. Regular lugs worked fine on mine. Need a thin wall socket though. No hub ring either. Little rubbing with 225/45-17 tires. Had to really be cornering hard to get the 205/50-17 to rub. Bear Peak at 60mph hard.
