Strait off, these rims are almost color matched to the two tone grey color on the Subaru Impreza Outback Sport, minus the gloss finish difference. Because of this the rims almost look OEM for the car. The simple spoke pattern and subtle sporty design really helps pull the car together. I got the 8in version of rim, the 48 offset along with the 8inch width gives off a pseudo stance look. The wheels nicely fill up the fender well and rides flush with the outside of the car.
I haven't noticed any weight difference because of these rims. The OEM rims before these were supposedly 30lbs a piece before tires. So a 36lbs difference might be hard to feel along with other factors. Speaking of tires I had All-Weather Continental DWS 225/45ZR installed, those have done wonders on their own.
With all of this there was no extra install procedure needed, all I did was swap the OEM with these great rims and tires. I do want to get an alignment just to double check if anything changed when getting a wider wheel, but this might not be needed.
