This is the matte bronze, there is another bronze but it's more goldish. These are stunning.

Those tires look amazingly meaty for being 245/40/17. What tires are they??

Yokohama A052's. They are actually race take-offs so there's not too much life left in them. Will have pictures of 255/40/17 pretty soon!

For those who got these - do they need centering rings? I know Gruppe-S sells hubcentric caps, but we're not supposed to run center caps in autocross. Thanks!

No. Despite their high price they don't come with rings. You'll either need to buy rings or buy the hubcentric caps. Note: you can't buy caps with normal rings because of their stupid design.

Do you know what size rings I'll need? Any you guys recommend? Gruppe-S says they don't sell rings, just hubcentric caps.

Yeah pretty sure it's 65mm - 56.1mm. I just use whatever cheap amazon ones I can find. They always work out fine.

I believe the centering caps are legal. Centering rings are. They can not fall out...

Heat tends to cause normal caps to warp and fall off, which is the issue.

Poorly designed ones yeah. But for example, APEX comes with caps and they have no problem falling out on track. Those wheels are much cheaper but yet they come with the things required to fit them. Where as Wedsport, despite making a pure BRZ/86 fitment (5x100 in an offset that works) does not. They require you to buy their stupid hub/cap combo that's like $160 per set.

Bronze wheels will be shipping tomorrow, please pay your balance.
Thanks for waiting

EJTI should be here in a month. Huge backorders with WEDS Japan and difficulty finding shipping here to America.
