No just the way I ended up taking the pic. The jacks were completely stable!

And for a good explanation, visite : http://kgm.tiwing.com/calcs/offsetcalc.htm


I tried 3 types of wheels

Original wheels :
Ugly, not flush, with really cheap 205-55-16 tires
I've never driven with these wheels.




The day I took possession of the car, I installed my winter tires on 4 news wheels. 4x RSSW (cheap) 16"x6.5 offset 45mm with 205-55-16
That's clean, look OEM and almost flush (more than originals wheels). But it's only for winter.






Last summer wheels.
Rota ATTACK 17x7 offset 48 with 4 Hankook 215-45-17
Did not like the color, not flush and tires were little bit too thin.

Thanks to Google Street View







Sold it few months ago and bought 4x Rota Torque 17x8 offset 48 with 225-45 Continental DW. No pictures yet on the car, because the weather is like that every week





1 month to wait

Looking good!

For anyone running 2013 style WRX 17x8's, what size tires are you running? How's your fitment? Any space left for dropping it an inch or so?

oh I see, yeah I was thinking the same thing too. It'll look ricey, so I just want something nice, but not too expensive.

Generally speaking, quality does not come cheap. However, are Rays necessary? No. Just don't cheap out too much on things that'll kill you if they break. lol

The funny thing about the P1's is that they either look tiny or huge. lol Always liked them though.

Offset?

OEM tires on aftermarket wheels. IE, the tires that came on the car (205-whatevers) from the 17x7's fitted onto aftermarket 17x8's. So, in comparison, the tire is "stretched" a hair.

How do these narrow-ish tires look on 17x8's in person? Was considering swapping these onto a set of BBS's temporarily, but not if it looks silly..

18X8 Enkei Raijin, gunmetal. 235/45 tires.

So far no issues with rubbing. Love the flushness, and the rear gap is now perfect, but the front still has an additional 1.5"-2" gap.

1191 for the enkei with tpms and tires
1200 for sparcos with tpms and tires

Tire rack prices sparcos were out of stock shipment comes in this week so fresh off the boat lol. I plan on playing with ateq quickset to see if I handles 2013 then I will report back.

I choose the kumhos as I had on my previous car they last 30k with my driving then again I always change 3 seasons every 3 years or 30k so these tires deliver the best bang for my buck. They are knock off of the Pirelli pzero I believe
