Enkei wheels
« on: September 29, 2010, 03:56:02 PM »
So, I was reworking my winter wheels today and discovered that my Saabaru wheels are Enkei's.  Are all USDM Subaru wheels made by aftermarket companys?  Or just the BBS STI's and Saab wheels?

One reason aftermarket Enkeis usually look so damn good on a Sube :)

Yes Yes I agree!  I am refinishing mine for winter.  Hopefully they will look clean.  I did my summers and they look gooder.

You can come over and be friends one of these days.  I still need to do some suspension business, put my cluster back in, wheels on car, hood on car, and Im sure that I can think of more stuff :P

I think they have made a lot of OEM wheels for various makes/models.  I love mine.  I think they look cool and I'm still amazed at how light they are.

+1

The OEM wheels on my EVO were Enkei.  I would love a set of RPF1s on my 2.5RS.

They make me smile each time I see my GC, like so: ;D

Dropped about 20 lbs. of unsprung weight when switching to them, as well.
