Cool New TR Motorport MT1's on my '13 STI Sedan!

Just put these wheels on the stock tires 2 days ago...I'm loving the look and feel with these wheels on the car! TR Motorsports MT1's in 18x9.5 all around... Here's some quick pics with the phone and I'll have some better ones soon!

Pics don't do these wheels justice...They set out almost perfectly flush with the fenders and clear the stock fenders perfectly on serious off camber situations on steep driveways.

^^^Thank you! Plus I forgot to mention the extra inch in width made a BIG difference in the steering feel...Much tighter and quicker response to steering inputs...Also 8lbs lighter per wheel means the acceleration feels slightly quicker off the line. All around I'm very happy with them. Price is great too from Tirerack.

Looks good but begging for wider tires. Those are great wheels too bad they are not made anymore. Those 18" 5x114 fitments will be the last new ones we'll ever see. I have two 17" sets and still debating on selling one of them or not.

Yep I'll put 255's on once the stockers are worn out. Right now the car has 900 miles so it'll be a while. Also seems like tirerack has plenty in stock.

i think he means they ONLY make 5x114 fitments anymore, and that 5x100 fitments are no longer available.

it looks to be the UPC label on the tire ... certainly not a weight

and the tire looks like the DWS not the DW but, the pictures are all that great so, not 100% sure
