Edit - update post #6 - Vorsteiner is interested in getting into the Subaru market!


I really love the style on these wheels but can't seem to find anything in 18" for a WRX. My 2016 WRX Limited is delayed by a few more weeks (end of March now dealer says) so I'm window shopping wheels while I wait. Planning on using OEM 18" wheels for a winter set. Either that or get someone's base model 17" OEM wheels for a winter set and sell my 18"s to get something like the HRE or VFFs for a summer set.

I live in CA in the bay area so winters would just be getting used for Tahoe trips and such for now. Majority of the time I'll have the stylish wheels on.

BBS makes some too, but one think I'm noticing is most of these are much more of a "U" shape spoke than a "Y" shape spoke. I really like the "Y" spokes.

So I contacted Vorsteiner directly to ask, and after a bit of back and forth received the following email:

We actually are really interested in the Subaru market for our Flow forged line. Vorsteiner initially started off as a Carbon company for European and exotic cars so in the beginning our flow forged line was strictly for those applications but in recent months we have expanded to American muscle (Mustang & Camaro) and Imports (Lexus applications). We see that an 18” is the ideal fitment for the Subaru and are working on an 18” mold. Once that mold is finished we will expand the application chart and I believe Subaru has a good chance of going into production.

If you want to do a 19” fitment that is possible. We would need at least 20 confirmed group by orders to do a special 1 off wheel for the Subaru.

Let me know what your thoughts are.



Yours Sincerely,

Adrian Perez

Awesome!!!

Yes these look real nice. Wonder if an 18" set looks any good on the GD body...

Well, I knew they wouldn't be cheap, but they're a lot better than HREs . Rough ballpark is gonna be around ~$2000 for a full set of 4 wheels at 18". Subject to change depending on demand - more demand, price goes down.
