I am seriously considering changing the alloys on the Type R. It currently has these Alloys

Inovite ST16 - 18 x 7.5 ET42



I am considering changing to these alloys:

Revolution Millenium - 18 x 8 ET48

I like them both. How much are you wanting for the others if you change?

Somebody already has first refusal on them mate - but I am not sure I am going to change them. I think they are abut £500 for a set of 4 new so I wouldn't ask very much for them if I was selling them

TBH i have never thought them wheels look right on your car, the wheels are nice and the car is lovely but i just don't think they go together, (my personal taste) I think it looks 100% better with the millenniums, they just suit the impreza.  Cool

PostSubject: Re: Alloy Change - Please Vote   Wed 20 Aug - 10:12

IMO the wheels you have on are nice and different due to having the polished lip, by changing them the the millenniums you would just be blending into the crowd as there's loads of classic imprezas with them on, so your car wouldn't be standing out from the crowd

I'd keep the Inovits if they were mine but make the gold bit on them a gunmetal colour.

Are you keeping the car now then Mario?
If you arekeeping it, Millenniums, not a fan of polished lip wheels at all, if you're selling, keep them ones on, no point wasting more money

^ agreed....not that I would expect Marios checkbook to listen!   Ninja 

Revolution Millenniums are the best wheels for the classics imo.

Milleniums are a far nicer looking wheel in my opinion, especially on a classic

Thanks for everybody's feedback. It really is appreciated. Yes the Revolutions are a lovely alloy and look good on a classic and that's why they are common. I've never been one to follow the crowd and like to have something different. So I think I am going to keep the ST16s for now and as Iddy say's save the money for more power!  lol!

I like that kind of colour, dark but not too dark either. I also like that dirty bronze colour that you get on Rays Volkrace alloys.

There are 2 reason something is common. It's cheap, or it's good, this is most definitely the latter

Kev I am well aware of the quality of the Revs - hence why they were used in Subaru WRC cars. Very strong & very light & I really do like them - I also like the Inovit ones which are cheaper and of lesser quality - maybe I'll buy a set anyway and have 2 sets that I can change when it suits me - Win/Win  lol!

If you want more power you will need bigger brakes, brembo's will brembo's fit behind those Inovate wheels?

Or why dont you go for the wheel that the millennium is copied off, compromtive mo's

LOL - Jonny I don't even know what the new power feels like as I have driven it since before it was mapped. Have had my rubbish headers changed so a wee tweak should see another 20-25 out of it according to Bob so it will be running around 360-365. I will be happy with that for a while anyway.

I love MO6s so I second those!

That said out of the two suggested there's no denying the revolutions look fantastic regardless of how common they are. It's kind of like bbs rs on a mk1/2 golf,so many people do it because they just look right.
