Hey guys so im doing my shopping for my st165 and was wondering what you guys thought about a few wheel choices ive found that i like. let me know what you think.

these are the tires ive settled on to mate with what ever wheel i do end up choosing later down the road just waiting to get one more w2 to file my taxes.

What color is your 165? Personally, I think the grey ones would look great on my 162 (blue). It would also look nice on a white car.

I like the Sparco's personally. Can accent the blue easily enough imo regardless. Unless you've got like a red car. ;]

For me I like linear, more 'chunky' lines to match the lines of the bodykit panels on the 165.

If looking at the closeouts on tirerack, maybe these: http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/WheelCloseUpServlet?target=runWheelSearch&initialPartNumber=2043771742SML&wheelMake=MOTEGI+RACING&wheelModel=SX5&wheelFinish=Silver+w%2FMachined+Lip&showRear=no&autoMake=Toyota&autoModel=Celica+All-Trac&autoYear=1988&autoModClar=&filterFinish=All&filterSize=All&filterBrand=All&filterSpecial=true&filterNew=All&filterWeight=All&sort=Brand

But if choosing between the two you said, I'd go with the OZ's.

But that's me, just an opinion. The Sparcos could easily look nice installed.

Or, buy some used. A really good source for used 5x100 wheels is VWVortex.com. They have a whole forum dedicated to buying/selling 5x100's.

I have been racing the OZ wheels for 2 years now (17x8) and love them.

MUCH lighter too.

Go with the OZ!

Thank you all. My ST165 is blue. i like them both the sparco's i think would be easier to clean and maintain here on the coast. The OZ just have that flare to them though and they look slightly dished.

I'm sorry man. I cannot, under any circumstance, agree with any wheel that's a fake multipiece.

I would have to say the O.Z.'s if I was choosing between those two.

Agreed.

Go with the lighter OZ.
