Oh God please post pics...please. What color Gravels did you go with and what brand tire are you going to use?

The cool thing is that you won't need hub rings AND these will clear Brembos if you ever decide to upgrade your brakes.

I really want some Gravels.

Subaru Stars Rota Grids 18x8.5 5x100 +44 front 18x9.5 5x100 +38 rear. BRZ staggered type setup

Alright, I have done some research, and I have come to the conclusion the Rota Grid's are indeed the wheels I want, in hyper black. I drive a 2006 impreza 2.5i (what i got from my parents I was so happy!!!) so I'm relatively new to the scoobie world, and to the wheel fitment scene as well. I have a set of lowering springs on the car, (came with the car when i bought it) so I'm down about an inch or so. I figured out that the 18 x 9.5 wheels will need alot of work to fit under my car haha

1. How much camber will I need for the rear wheels? and how much should that cost?
2. What kind of tires would be good? I realize I will need 2 different widths, any recommendations?
3. I have noticed that my hub bore is 56.1 mm compared to the Rota Grid's 73mm. How can I change that? and is it hard?/safe? Do I even need to? (dont know much about hub bore at all so bare with me if I sound stupid)

I have been looking at these wheels for a while now, but I wont have the funds until sometime during the summer. I'm deffinitly going to ask a tire shop these questions and see what kind of responses I get. Any help is appreciated! thanks guys.

Sweet....but why such a skinny tire vs. a 245/40R18? I'm definitely jealous.

That's a nice looking rim. What's the price premium for a 'one-off' vs. standard size?

What size are they? If they're 18x8.5, I wouldn't run less than a 235/40/18s. I had 225/40s on an 18x8.5 setup and there was some stretch.

I havent bougth new tires yet, I got them used with 5% tire life, im thinking 235s or 245s, being that its e48 and 18x8 theyre will be no issues with rubbing so idk yet..just not sure if im going to Plasti dip them now or after I put new tires on them..Stock sti 18x8 rims run 225/40/18 and figured I would make them fit, look, ride as nice as I could

08-13 STIs run 18x8.5 (245/40/18) setup. You can get away with a 225/40/18 on an 18x8 wheel, but it would be smaller in diameter than your stock wheel/tire setup. Just grab 235/40/18s and you'll be fine. 245/40/18 is the absolute maximum you would want to run on an 18x8 wheel and it's overkill in my opinion.

Wheeldude guys really letting me down right now. Dont understand why when I ordered my Rota DPT Hyperblacks I received them in a week, but I ordered lugs on December 28th, which were in stock, had to call 3 times and bitch before they processed my ordered finally on Jan 8th. Priority Mail got posted on Jan 9th notifying USPS to pick up, and nothing after that, doesn't even say it was pickup yet and that was a week ago. Did it not even get sent out? Needed them for tomorrow!!! Figured ordering 3 weeks before I need in hand would be enough time... WTF

I'd imagine you'd be okay, that's a "conservative" setup. I'm going to have the same setup in the Spring (have 225/40/18s on the same size Grids right now), I don't rub and I'm lowered 1.2f/1.0r with stock fenders (not rolled).

That'd fit on a narrow body 3g. I hope there wouldn't be any issues on a GD STi...

On a 18x8.5 I wouldn't go much bigger than 245, 235 is a good tire size for 8.5
