That just does not work for me. Looks forced and ill fitting.

@ ex25rs, There is no such thing as a proper fitting 10" rim. It is too darn wide. You will be doing detrimental things to your handling, as the ability to put a contact patch that wide and flat will not be possible with stock camber settings. The weight of the rim and tire will effect the way your suspension reacts, and itwill increase your braking distances.

going to a 10" tire is purely a looks thing if your into that sort of look. It is not for performance unless you have Major dollars of supporting equipment to take advantage of the extra width.

I would wager most stock rimmed/tired STI's would be faster in any measurable competition.
