Pics or ban. haha

So, ended up not buying the RPF's. Didn't really want to go another set of aftermarket 17's. Probably picking up a local set of brand new BRZ wheels and tires for now, then going the 18" Rota Gravel in the Spring..

without lowering the car, i have already rubbed a couple times in the rear with midly stretched tires on 8.5 wheel +30 offset. Hopefully when i lower it tomorrow i can get some camber to get that rub outta here

I highly doubt it, but figured I'd ask.

It looks like I may be picking up a set of FRS/BRZ wheels off a friend. These are brand new. Removed from the car right after delivery. They are off a FRS technically. Would the TPMS in these wheels be able to be flashed to my Impreza? I do not have my stock TPMS anymore. I could really care less about having TPMS at all, but if it can be flashed to work, it'd be nice to have the indicator light on my gauges stop lighting up. Since it's a FRS/BRZ I wasn't sure with the BRZ being a Subaru.. Or if FRS and BRZ use different sensors each.. I have no clue. Anyone have any idea??

Can anyone tell me (that has one) what size the stock tires are on the 16" steelies from the base model? Could possibly be the same from the 16" alloys on the next model up. I know the stock 17's are 205/50. I may do something a little off the wall here..

Guys, quick question.

What is the center bore for our hubs? Getting a pair of 5mm spacers for the rear of my wagon this weekend.

Thanks!

Hm.. I heard all you really need is a 5 in the rears to even things out wheel flushness-wise. Is the 8 in the rear and 5 in the front the way to go, or did you just buy both sets for the rear to test? haha At 5 or 8, is there enough threads left on the lugs to tighten down properly?

Excellent. For my needs, I plan on just putting 5 in the rear. That's really all I need. Thanks!

Decided to plasti-dip my stock rims on saturday. Turned out better then I expected, considering my spray painting skills are weak.

Very nice! Those would also look good on my DGM

I saw a blue WRX the other day with similar Enkei rims, they looked amazing

Thanks angelus!!! I'm super stoked, I should receive them sometime next week and as soon as i lace them up i'll post some pictures!

P.s. Wanted DGM more than you know but settled for marine blue, hopefully the gunmetal Enkei's will look as good on it as they would a DGM, pics to follow

I love those rims! I think they'll look great on your Marine blue Subie. If I were to buy new rims, I would def get those in 18".

I'm mad now after seeing more that I didn't get my Sport in that dark gunmetal (I think DGM). I like my Ice Silver, but the DGM looks great, is almost black, and has the black interior. Didn't even notice it did. The tan interior was the only reason I didn't get just black..

Guys, I had an off the wall idea. And I think it'd look neat. 17" steel wheels on a dropped wagon. Black of course.

Here's the specs:
Size 17 x 7
Offset 35
Part Number 83B-7718
Hub Bore 72
Backspacing 5.38
Load Rating 1500

On the site, it lists them as fitting all 5x100 Subaru's, so I'd assume they would fit without issues. But would the overall fit be similar to the stock 17x7's? That's what I'm going for. Same kind of fit as stock, but black steelies, and lower profile tires than stock. I have 225/45's on my 17x7.5's, but I have some 215/45 snows that would be going on these. Personally, I think it'd look boss after the car is dropped on coils and eliminates the wheel gap. Just something subtle and clean. Coils, add-on rear spoiler, blacked out grille wings, tint, EZ Lip front lip.. I've always liked different things that aren't common. I ran 16x6.5 steelies with high performance tires on my 11 Si for awhile before I got my Volks. lol Opinions, thoughts?

Edit: Seems like they also make a +41 version as well.

I have a 2013 Impreza Sport Limited. The stock offset is 48mm. I really like the look of the Bronze Work Emotion XD 9. However the offset for the 18x8 is 38mm. Am I still able to run those wheels or will I run into issues?
