Looking at Subaru's website, it looks like the base model comes with crappier 18" wheels than the Premium does. So, these are probably only an "upgrade" for the base trim.

probably because of the weight capacity. The base model can only tow 2000 lbs, so it doesn't need wheels with a high load capacity; and the STI wheels are just that.
What is the weight rating on these (STI) rims? They are listed as an ascent accessory.

And why does the base have a lower weight / tow capacity? All of the hardware should be the same, right?
