    I think I've scored this set of 17" Rays forged monoblock wheels and tires. :cool:
    Were they ever factory fitted to a WRX?
    Are the centre caps legit, or has someone had 'em made?
    I missed out on a set of these suckers a year ago,I really like 'em.
    They're in really nice condition,too.
    Found a cheap set of Prodrive rims,too,nice condition,just needing a lick of paint,really cheap as well.
    My cars previous owner had a set of them on my car.
    Wheels like these are just going to get harder and harder to find and go up in price,I'd rather snatch some now,instead of kicking myself for passing on them,later.

    Those are Rays RS Zero & were a dealer option for the later GC8s
    The decals are correct

    Hey, don't want to burst your bubble but those aren't RS Zero's. RS Zero's have the 3 dimples at the end of each spoke.

    The picture you've found on the web, those are correct as they have the dimples.

    I know they're not RS Zeros, but thanks anyway.
    I actually found a decal kit for RS Zeros...
    Spent some time cleaning the wheels and they went from really clean to really REALLY clean.
    Finally got a break in the weather and bolted them on.
    Anyone think the car is sitting too high?

    I'm tempted to pull the rear struts out,grind off the welds on the lower spring saddle,lower it by 1/4" and re-weld it.
    A nice,stealthy way to lose some ride height with zero detection,that..:mask:

    Wheels look nice on car and suits quite well, always just thought they are to bare (a sixth spoke missing).

    You can get a set of lowering springs for the car, even new I think. Of course 6 mm is not that much, but you will be changing the permanent compression of the damper compared to the spring.

    Right on.
    I can get some pink STI springs that drop the car -30mm..
    Only NZ$60 per spring,too.
    This is the only info given:
    K=34 (3.5kgf / mm), For Sedan WRX-RA & Coupe WRX-R, Use with genuine Struts, Color: Painted in Cherry Red, 30mm Drop. Price for one.
