Default Miro 111's? 18x9.5

I don't believe Miro is a good name, actually i'm pretty sure its going to get hated on but, whatever..

anyone try these? They look like they might be able to be pulled off.

Do they have them in 5x100 or are you putting them on a car that is different from your profile car? If you are putting them on a WRX then unless you switched over to the 5x114.3 Bolt Pattern, those don't look like they will work.

Was thinking about 255/35/18 to be closer to the stock 25" diameter so the size doesn't mess with my speedometer

255s may/may not be a little wide for a 8.5in wide wheel depending on exact tire (245s would fit better IMO) and assuming you have a wrx a smaller tire diameter will help gearing.

245/35 is a hair short, and severely limits tire choices (because its kind of an oddball size). A 255/35 is better suited for 5 speed gearing, and has more tire options.

And its fine on an 8.5" wheel.

Not really an oddball size, but not typical of subaru fitments. And again, not nearly the same number of tire choices in a 245/35 as there are in a 255/35.

255/35 is closer to stock circumference, with a wider track.

What he said! And the difference between 245/35 and 255/35 will be virtually nothing, so go with whichever one that's cheaper in the tire that you like.

But mainly more pics, I like the one a few posts up!

Does anyone have these on their car in black in 18x9.5 +40? I'd really interested in wheel weight and look so I can put them on a 2011...
