Final steps to steam-clean the WRX’s wheels were completed over the weekend. Years worth of brake dust had corroded the wheels, diminishing their appearance. But through the miracles of modern chemistry, high pressure steam and some elbow grease, Daniel and Chris were able to return the wheels to near stock appearance.
If a set of 5×100 bolt pattern BBS wheels (optional an ’02 to ’04 WRXs) can be sourced locally, those will become the summer wheels with sticky 17″ tires. The stock 16″ wheels would then be be relegated to winter tire duties. But they’ll still look better than they have in years while carving through the snow.
