Minnesota is unseasonably warm this year. It was torture using the winter tires the last couple weeks. Now that you mention it, this the first set of brand new wheels I've gotten too (besides my steelies).

Function FTW. People seem to forget that track cars aren't slammed. If you are only worried about how your car looks in pictures, then slamming it is cool I guess. But if you want the best handling car you can have, it isn't a good idea.

I like the height you have it now.

Thanks. It is a pretty good height. Could be a touch lower but then I'd probably start scraping on things.

Also, it probably looks higher because of the low shooting angle. I am literally laying on the ground to take these.

Yes, I have thought about it, but I haven't done it. I think it looks clean, but I don't like the idea of trying to make it look like I have something I don't have (ie. STI impersonator). Seems pretty dumb now that I think about it.

I think you'd only have to worry about being an STi impersonator when you replace the current badging with STi ones. And reading through your thread, I can safely assume you won't be doing such things. lol

IDK, makes people not know if it's a WRX or STI in hopes of them assuming it's an STI? Dumb, I know.

My tail lights are vinyl overlays.
