These arrived. If you need a refresh, they are Speedline Acropoli sized 15 6.5J +35 that I found on yahoo auction for a measely 8000円. Lots of Subaru guys make claim that some 16’s won’t even clear 4 pot calipers, and when looking at my Watanabe’s, that might seem true. The Wat’s fit tight, with only a couple of mm clearance. I was very skeptical that the smaller Speedline’s would fit.
Yet they do.
Adding to the cool factor of these is a greenish gold colour that looks pretty righteous under WRB, and makes my Wat’s feel very boring. Another surprise was that they are made of magnesium…. not that they are light, but they are clearly stamped “Mg” on the back. As competition rally wheels, they are quite heavy… but I’ll deal.
Next is tire shopping. Do I go for some non-DOT, WRC-spec Dmack’s? or some 175 width DOT’s with massive studs? What wonderful choices I have! Bless you Speedline and Yahoo Auctions!
