Oh nice, I don't use Instagram or any other form of social media but maybe I should get on. I love seeing what people are doing with their GP7.

I am really torn between a set of wheels like yours or a set like those on your wife's car. I guess I don't need to make a decision too soon, whatever I get will be for winter tires. Maybe, unless I decide to swap my current tires onto whatever rims I get and use my stock sport rims for winters...tough choice, as I like the stockers quite a bit.

you are not the only one torn between both the enkei and the sparco that's what it came down to for me I just lucked out and bought both so I can switch back and forth. I use the stockers in winter they are slightly heavier but they do look nice.

Unfortunately I only have one Imp Sport, so I have to make a decision.

Test fitted my new wheels today

Varrosten 2.2.1 18x9.5 +34

The car will be going to tanabe for R&D on monday hopefully to get another suspension set up made for our vehicles. So please forgive the height it looks ridiculous right now but will be lowered/slammed soon.






These wheels will be replaced as well for new wheels that I plan to use for subie fest in september. They will however be going on my buddies 2013 impreza sedan

^^^yeah man clearance looks really tight in the rear gonna have my fenders rolled after the car is lowered

But I think the fitment won't be a issue once it's lowered with a bit of natural camber should give enough room

These wheels fit perfectly on my buddies 2008 wrx with no wide body added so we should be ok

I guess me and your are on the frontier of wide wheels for this car lol

^^^yeah man stupid coil overs I hope I get a set from Tanabe but I doubt it I read in another thread that '08+ wrx (non-sti) fits on our cars

I got 225 Achilles they have enough stretch on the sidewall to give me clearance
when I get my next set of wheels I'll Prolly go with 215/40 so I can get that poke on the lip lol

Changed on Motegi MR119. 17X7, very basic. They were matte, I though to use them for winter, but oh well... It will be used for summer.
