Default 6ULR on my subaru

I was able to install my new tungsten 6ULR's tonight after work. Those of you who voted in my emails a while back, I did order the graphite but only the tungsten's came in 5x100. I'm real glad because I love how it looks The color is almost a dead match to the darker trim on my outback. In the bright direct sunlight there's a little more blue in emilio's wheel but I think that'll fade once brake dust gets on there.

I snapped some quick photos before the sun went down. I'll get some nice pics once I build my exhaust maybe. Pics!

I am posting 5 pictures below. If they don't show, hit REFRESH or F5 please.










I'm running some 'gently' used 245/45 RE01R's I got from a buddy. There's quite a few "there's no way this will fit, christ, emilio doesn't take returns on wheels, ahh crap, oh boy, well might as well mount a tire and try now" spots on both ends but surprisingly, so far, all I had to do was trim a small spot in the rear inner fender. I already had coilovers which, like most wideass wheels, are required which was the case here. Fun stuff!!

Yeah I'm tickled pink. Thanks to Emilio for a great wheel!

I'm probably a very small subset here... but this is just another case confirming that the 6uls are not an attractive wheel...

Hard to argue though with price vs fitment vs weight etc....

Oh.... and engine bay pics or ban? Better not be stock

I love the 6ul's in 15x9. I like dish. I want them eventually for my miata, waiting for the XTR's to come out.

This 6ulr is pretty decent looking, but yeah it's very light and inexpensive, and exclusive IMHO. I could have gone rota. Boring.

I took off the plastic engine bay cover because i lost the plastic rivets. So it's not stock. Other than that it's boring. Just a opensource reflash and I put some manley inconel exhaust valves/springs/ti retainers in it when I had it apart over the winter because they were cheaper than OEM stuff. I have many parts for it lying around everywhere but no time to play boo hoo poor me.

Eeh, I'm not nearly as impressed as I am with the 6UL's on miatas...just doesn't give me the same "WOW that really looks good" reaction, definitely doesn't look bad though by any means.

I like it! Although I bet they look 100x better in person. Good buy.

In case you were about to post about how you think the 6ULs don't look good on his subaru but they do on your miata:

Very subtle, almost like an upgraded stock looking wheel. I dig it

I dig it. Definitely better than having yet another Subaru with Rotas or STi BBSs.

Plus the finish sort of looks like it blends with the silver trim.
