I ordered the Sparcos in grey along with a set of Michelin X Ice tires ($91 a piece at the Tire Rack), I'll be set for Winter now. (yes I know it's a little early)

I figured it was nice wheels and nice tires now or wait til the fall and have to settle for cheaper wheels since the tires would be more expensive.

And the Tire Rack just phoned me to verify I knew that the sensors would need to be initialized at a dealership and that the order is ready to ship.

rears are rolled with a slight pull but it hits on the back bumper tab which is normal happened on my evo and on my buddies WRX

fronts were rolled too but have tons of clearance the main thing thats rubbing is the inner fender liner (again an issue ive delt with before with slammed cars)

my main issue is that my tires a huged 235 on my next set if wheels i will go 215 all the way around

Except if you change over each year the cost adds up. A regular tire shop with the proper tools should be able to update the ecu my shop was able to do it no problem eventhough I had the ateq. Dealership, no thank you.

My Sparcos Michelin combo arrived today. They look great and are pretty light. Although I admit the last wheel I moved was a 285 70/16 off of my F-150 I sold just after getting my Imp.

Just wondering does anyone see a problem with 17" +50mm offset wheels? I'm looking at the enkei RFS5 but the 17" only comes in +50. I could get the 18" which comes in +45 but that increases the price of the tire/wheel package and I'm on a really tight budget.

I used an offset calculator and the inner clearance would be 8mm less and the other position would extend an extra 4mm (compared to my stock). How do I measure if I'm going to have issues? Turn my stock wheels all the way to one side and see how much room there is on the inside corner?

Actually the oem wheel are +48 of offset. There's only 2mm of difference between the oem. The older impreza wheel are at around +55.
