Can you take some daytime pics??... The ones I saw left a gap between the piece and those black strips that run down the roof... On OBP it doesn't matter but on swp its extremely noticeable

Have it painted the same color as your car spool. It would look great on your car. Thats what I'm going to do.

Really like the ride tehknikhal! As the other guy said the scoopless hood looks clean! Plus I've always been a sucker for black on black... **** just looks mean! And you've probably answered this but are your Rota's 18x9 +40?

What's up johnnylin! You gotta post a better picture than that. And I told you not to sell the Subaru

Haha, thanks man. I'm actually going to powder coat the rims. I don't like the black on black all too much.

Rim specs are actually 18x10 +30 offset.

Well **** haha slammed on 18x10s like a BAUSS. What color you thinking? I'm wanting to powder my wheels also. Automotive paint doesn't last to long on wheels.

White FTW lol. I didn't want to rattle can mine either so I had a body shop paint them but just like when rocks hit your car the paint chips like it chipped on my wheels :-/ but my buddy painted them who owns the body shop for only 50 bucks. It was just to see if I liked the color which I did so I may as well just powder them the same color

Not bad. I wouldn't mind a cheap hook up like that. You don't see much of those out here in CO. Maybe a layer of clear coat would have protected it better?

As for the color I can't decide still. Lol

I might have a buyer for these rims so Idk looking at another set with 25 offset instead of 30.

Hi I was wondering if you guys could help me choose a nice fitment for my 2010 wrx. I plan on lowering it soon on bc coilovers. I was debating between the linea corse gold and polished lip that are 18x9.5 et30 or the rota mxr 18x9.5 or 8.5 et 44 or klutch republik sl14 18x8.5 et35 or 18x9.5 et30. Also if I'd need to roll my fenders for this fitment and a nice sized tire. Thanks

Depends on your definition of "nice fitment"... Some of us like the low with wide wheels look, others favor the slightly narrower wheel with a more functional ride height... 9.5 is going to take more work to fit ie rolling fenders, stretched tires, neg camber etc... you can get away with an 8.5 wheel and a 235/40 tire without having to do fender work, stretch tires, etc... Once you decide which look you want/ are going for we can assist you more

Yea I'd like to have a 235/35 or something with a nice meat to it. Prolly won't slam it super low just a nice fit. So I could lower it a little and be fine with a 18x8.5 on a 235?

I'm going to rattle can 2 gold and 2 white the day before I powder them lol I have to see the color before I choose. Spending 375 bucks on the wrong color would suck big time
