Have 15 and 18mm spacers.

So, options.

The RPF1 might work, especially with 17's. The 38 offset is a little much for the rear, but I think it could work. I believe that's what Dan is running on his car.

If your rear spring rate is high enough it'll work just fine. I run these as well and have no issues whatsoever with 255's

The RPF1 needs a 5mm spacer to clear the brembos in front. No spacer in the rear. I've had no issues running them with 400 or 500 lb/in rear rates.

Tire Rack updated the specs on the Rival, they now list the tread depth as 7.2/32" and they also updated the weights, they aren't as heavy as previously listed.

Just ordered a set of the Rivals in 245/40-17. Estimated delivery date is 05/06, so we may be running our rain tires at the first couple events. I'm thinking the Rivals may be a bit better than the Z II's for a heavy dual-driver car, so we'll give 'em a try.

I just finished my first autocross here in dfw with the new Dunlop Direzza z2's.

I'm loving this tire VERY much! I don't have anything to compare it to besides the stock tires though.

Turn in on the slaloms is so amazing. I hit more cones because of it than I ever have lol.

They are very good on the sweepers too.

It's a 2011 wrx. I don't know what class I would be in to be honest. It was just with a local club.

I have Whiteline front and rear sway bars, Cobb stage 1+ aem, invidia catback. I have mach v awesome 17x9's with 255/40r17.

I haven't done an scca autocross yet. I know based on my mods I would probably be put in a class that I wouldn't be competitive in with my current mods.

So I'm just having fun with what I have for now.

Different tires sizes from stock are actually OK, but running wheels not stock size (17x8) and within 1/2in stock offset bumps you up a class. And of course the boost...

I look forward to trying my new set on an ACR in a couple od weeks at our T&T...

I'm still new to autocross. Last spring I did my first autocross. Now I'm super hooked on it haha.

For now I'm just running local autocrosses to get more experience and have fun. I MIGHT try one SCCA event this year just to see how I stack up, then make adjustments to the mods on my car to get more competitive in 2014.

If I may, this isn't 100% accurate for SCCA Solo stock class rules. You're right about the wheel size having to remain stock diameter and width and yes you can run any width tire, but the offset allowance is only +/- 1/4 inch.

For 2009+ WRXs in Street Touring (STU to be exact) you can run wheels with different diameters, widths, and offsets, but you are limited to a tire width of 245mm. The combination of the other guy running a 255 tire (stock legal but not STU legal) and a 17x9 wheel (STU legal but not stock legal) means that he would have to run Street Prepared (ASP). The stage 1 tune means ASP too, but I don't think anyone was confused about that.

Anyway, sorry to take the thread off topic, but just wanted to provide that clarification so new folks wouldn't be confused.

Why not SM? Does ASP have a better adjuster?

Not so much anymore. I personally will prolly jump to SM for the year as its only .001 difference in pax. It's about a .05 second difference and I feel I can make up that difference with the added mods you're allowed.

Earlier delivery date means I'm trying the Rivals now, and I'm pretty happy about the "wears like iron" comments. February 16th should be the first event on them, so I'll share initial thoughts afterwards.

Yeah, I plan to mount my ZIIs tomorrow. Want others to test out the rivals first. I'll gladly switch to BFG, if the Rival proves to be even as fast as the others. I like their support of all classes and events.

I wont lie, we were treated very nicely.

Anyone in the South do any private testing yet? I'm very eager to see how they stack up with the ZII's.

My younger brother did some down in Texas last weekend in his Sti on z2's. When I asked him how it went his reply was "simply put, amazing". He's working on getting a set of Rivals but it isn't going to well.
