Option Lab Wheels R716 Midnight Blue Metallic 5x100 18x9.5 35mm Offset
Here, you are looking at the Option Lab R716. This wheel was designed to be a performer, featuring a super ridged twin-spoke design and the most recent in flow forming technology.
Every Option Lab Wheel is Made by Enthusiasts for Enthusiasts. They thrive on delivering the latest design, proven manufacturing process, and rigid testing procedure while keeping the wheels affordable.
Changing the wheels will completely change the look of your car. A set of appropriately sized wheels allows the perfect wheel and tire fitment to give your car that aggressive stance without sacrificing drivability.
The width and offset chosen for the Option Lab R716 wheel was not randomly picked. The 9.5 inch wide wheel width features a concave face and allows tires up to 285 section width tires to be fitted, most Subaru owners elect for 245 or 255-section width tires that will be slightly stretched on the wheel to minimize sidewall flex experienced during hard cornering; keep in mind each tire manufacture makes their tire slightly different.
Optionlabs engineered the wheels to have several vehicle-specific fitments in mind. This 18x9.5 ET35 5x100 sizing you see here fits beautifully on the 2002-2014 WRX platform, with enough extra clearance for just about any BBK you could throw at it. These are also a great choice for BRZ owners! Either platform would be best suited with a bit of a drop in ride height for a flush stance.
These wheels also feature a wide lug opening that does not require the use of smaller diameter tuner lug nuts and accepts most OEM and aftermarket replacement TPMS.
Midnight Blue Metallic Finish:
The Midnight Blue Metallic is a very special finish that gives a very low-key appearance. Under the sun, the wheels will have a stunning blue shine, while at night time, it will just appear black. Perfect for those who love a deep blue finish.
