2007 STI BBS Wheels Silver

Selling a very nice set of STi BBS wheels in silver. I love these wheels and really don't want to sell them but I need to raise some money for repairs. They have Summer tires on them but they are pretty low and should be replaced.

Looking for $550.

I am assuming these are the forged Enkei mfg. wheels.
I know that most after market wheels are selected for their appearance.
But... From a purely "numbers" standpoint-These are the best non-stock wheels available for the SVX, for the following reasons:
Lightest weight (Forged wheel)
Correct offset
No hub adapter required
17"
The list price for these wheels is several times your asking price.

No, they are not the ones manufactured by Enkei, those are 07 STi Limited Wheels. They look similar but are a little different. These are the same as the 05 and 06 STi wheels, but they changed the center caps on the '07 from "BBS" to "STi".

Re: 2007 STI BBS Wheels Silver

Actually, they also changed the manufacturer in 07 to Enkei from BBS, hence the switch away from the BBS center caps.

Those absolutely are manufactured by BBS. The 2007 Limited Edition STi has wheels made by Enkei. The center caps on the BBS wheels are just a trim change for 2007.

Here are the Enkei Limited wheels:

I'm not gonna argue with you, I'm quoting a forum post I remember reading when I started looking for mine, so I could very well be wrong.

Don't want to argue either! I've driven an STi for 5 years and a WRX before that for 5 years, and a member of NASIOC since 2001. I'm certifiably an Impreza lunatic, obsessed, disturbed, a freak, I've researched these cars to death... I need help.

Back on topic... the BBS or even the Limited STi Enkei wheels are absolutely the best wheel choice for the SVX. They are even the best wheels for the STi.

I used to laugh when new STi owners would dump these wheels and get an inferior 18" POS and mount them on their STi, because they were 1" larger! The stock wheels are freakin' forged, tough, perfect dimentions, and did I say forged!

Re: 2007 STI BBS Wheels Silver

I actually don't see BBS written on them anywhere. Near the lugs it says "Forged" and the back says "made in Japan". It also does not say Enkei anywhere.

I found this posted on wheel forum;
All of the forged BBS wheels (RSGT, LM, RGR, RE, RVF and RGF) are produced in Japan by Washi Beam, a long time partner company to BBS Germany. Washi Beam produces die-forged wheels for Subaru, Mitsubishi, Aston Martin, Bentley, Lexus, Mazda and a few others as original equipment.
