Found side shot and can now see them. I so love this bigger rotors and brakes! But I think I need a rear lip or something...
Yeah can't wait to do mine, should have them done by beginning of November. And a rear diffuser would look nice. Like a stock 06 sti one. And what exhaust is that by the way, how does it sound?

Probably some ebay brand. Says "burnout" on it. i bought it off another 2.5i guy. The it had to welded an extra 3 inches on so it would sit out correctly. But i love the way it sounds. i dont know how i would to describe it? haha

Took mine out while doing a retro fit. Looks a lot cleaner... Just my opinion though, to each their own

Some 17x7.5 or 8 with a 225/45 tire. I wouldn't get anything to to expensive for a set of wheels. Browse Craigslist or local car forums. I picked up my rotas with 7/32nd left of tread for $700. I picked up my Gram Lights with 6/32nd tread for $200 flat with spline drives.

Bottom line is deals are around. No need to throw on a $1,500 set of wheels/tires on a non sports car daily driver.

What's your suspension, do you mind rolling/pulling the fenders, do you want stretch or a big tire and what size 16, 17, 18?

I ran 17x9 +38 with 245/40 and was pretty low only rubbed on hard bumps. An 18x9 +38 with 245/40's will be fine as well.

Also, I had 18x8 +45 with 235/40 which looked really good you could go as low as a +35 offset without fitment issues.

If you want to get some form of camber control in the rear and with a little roll/pull you can go 18x9.5 +38 with 255/35

Oh crap. Yea it is a little lol. I was assuming he has a 3G Impreza. With a slight roll and some camber adjustment he can still fit those sizes. Just takes a little more work but not too bad.
