I'd say $350 for a good set without center caps and $500 with the center caps. That's just what I would pay.

Honestly, any aftermarket wheel for these cars is going to be tough to find. The Enkei Compe-8 (the ones in your post) are more common than you might think, but only a handfull of sets go up for sale each year.

If you really want a set, especially a nice set with center caps, be willing to fork out some dough...

I've only got 3 sets and six center caps and I've been looking for about a couple years straight now. I'll be selling off all of my extras once I've got one perfect set put together. So keep an eye out for that.

They are both pretty hard to find, but I feel the enkei's are more desirable.

I used to own a set of the Scorros and in terms of availability, they are harder to find versus the Enkei rims.

That said, I prefer the Enkeis.

On the Enkei center caps. Are they specific to the Subaru Compe-8 wheel? Or, was the same center cap used on other Enkei wheels of that era that were made for other brands of cars.

Also, does anybody know the dia. of the Compe-8 center cap?

Then there are these Enke style in 10 spoke listed under products subsection classic are available in 4x140 pattern in 15 inch and also a nice once in modular style in 14x6 inch in 4x140 pattern.

There are also some really nice rides shown in the Gallery as well worth looking at to see how the wheels look on some cars you guys are familiar with and a few you haven't seen also.

The Wheels look really good but are too big to upload here so check the site out.

Another really nice wheel is Simmons also Australian and one few have heard of not cheap and competition orientated is Braid out of Spain that few even here in australia know about.

Sorry no 14'' x 4x140 mm PCD - but you could get a 15'' x 4x130 mm & redrill them ?

 

Cheers, Bantum ... :)
