Pothole ate my left front so I am looking to get a set of wheels, let me know your opinion on the styles below or if there are any similar wheels! Thanks

I am looking to get Bronze wheels, if its not for you, I get it, but I wanted the bronze on black look and so here we are lol. Specificilly I like the gloss bronze over a matte, hence my selection below.
I am also going with 18x8.5 with an offset in somewhere in the 42 range, I wanted to go with more sidewall and wider tire and stance.
I will most likely be going with a 245/50 tire, probably a Michelin All Season like the Pilot Sport A/S or similar, let me know if you have any tire recommendations too.

Konig Dekagram - Gloss Bronze
27948


Konig Ampliform - Gloss Bronze
27949

Konig Freeform - Radium Bronze
27950


Let me know your opinions on these styles. Not to impart bias but I really like the Dekagram the most.

Thanks!

P.S. I will have 3 OEM wheels up for sale when I get the new ones, they are not perfect thanks to the previous owner but if you are looking for a replacement, look out for my post in the for sale section later this year. It wont be for a while due to a work trip and supply on the new wheels, but just putting that information out there, the tires are pretty new too, they were replaced by the dealership before I bought the car used.

Yeah like the Deca the most out of all of them. I bought a set of Myths for my 13 years ago, now I need to get something for the Sport. I really Konig, but they dont have much out there in a 19.

Hi anotherfusion. All 3 of those wheels are nice. In order of preference, I like the Freeform first. Then the Dekagram a pretty close second. Then the Ampliform a little more distant third.

Not sure how bad your wheel was damaged or if you saw the existing thread on having bent wheels repaired. So just in case you may be interested in having your bent wheel /straightened/repaired (if possible), instead of buying 4 new wheels, see this thread: Straighten and repair bent/damaged wheels.

Let us know how you make out and good luck.

Thanks @bbf2530, I will post a pic of the wheel tonight when I get home, but it’s bent and cracked. It is pretty gnarly, not sure how it is still holding air honestly. I wouldn’t mind getting it repaired for a backup set of wheels but I planned to get aftermarket wheels eventually, just wish it wasn’t this soon...

Hey everyone, so when I added to the original post to add the tire information since I noticed I had left that off, the post got flagged or something and was waiting for admin approval before it was public again. So now that we are back here is the pictures of my left front! :)

Hi anotherfusion. My first advice is always to get the opinion of the professionals. So I would recommend Googling wheel repair specialists in your area and asking them.

Now, that being said...from what I have learned in having a bent wheel repaired, that wheel is probably not repairable.

As mentioned in my other thread, the wheel shops I contacted, and the one I used, stated they can straighten wheels that are bent on the inside of the wheel (suspension side). Unfortunately, a wheel bent on the visible face is too difficult to repair. The physical dynamics and physics are not optimal. Add to that the crack, and I think that wheel is not repairable. But check with the professionals (which I am not) for the final word.

Let us know how you make out and good luck.

Voted for the Ampliforms, with the Freeform as a strong runner up.

Love the decision to go Bronze. Thinking of doing that myself. Does anyone have any good example of Ruby Red sports with bronze wheels? I usually see red WRX's around where I live with bronze wheels and they look sharp.

If the Ampliform was a 5-spoke, it'd be my choice... I like that split spoke design better than the Freeform, and the squarish edges in it's design.

I've always had a pet peeve about lugs and spokes being different (Ampliform is 5 lug, 6 spoke), or not being multiples ( Dekagram is 5 lug, 10 spoke).
