Default I want my car flush

I recently saw a real clean looking black STI in Tuner Sport and saw that the wheels and tires make it look flush, or maybe a hair bigger on the offset. I have an 06 STI and I was wondering which set of 57D Gram Light Volks I need to buy to make it look like this....so basically the wheels come out to be flush with the outside of the fender.....does someone know what i am talking about? And if so, can someone help me get in the right direction?

if you are this clueless, you have absolutely no business attempting aggressive fitments. it isn't for you. its one of those things, that if you want that look, and know how to get that look - do it. if you don't, it is VERY easy to cause irreversible PERMANENT damage to your car.

if you can't figure out how to make a certain fitment work by searching through the stickies at the top, you have absolutely no business attempting aggressive fitments. it isn't for you.

move on.

Almost flush isn't hard.. As long as you don't get into fender rolling, large amounts of neg camber, tire stretching, etc..

Just look at some of the large threads with people's fitments to see what seems to usually fit without the above mess.. Different tires of the same size still vary so that can also make a difference..
