I believe omahasubaru was referring to my wheels. Enkei RC-G4 rally rims.

Those RC-G4 look just like BRAIDs

I noticed that a lot of the gravel rims look very similar too. like the compmotives look very similar to the enkie ones above my post. only ones that ive seen that look somewhat different are the team dynamics.

I guess if you design a wheel with function ahead of everything else there are only so many places you can put metal. The TD are differently unavailable at the moment. We've not seen any all year.

Those buildings look an awful lot like SCR Performance, but they're all the way up in Loveland.

Long ways from where I live. Perhaps same construction/blueprints for the building.

They don't rub until I bottom out the suspension (did that a couple times, found I need to trim the rear bumper) and they are scraping the fender liner I still have left just a little when turning under load.

But its not bad right now. Would be better with the 215/70/15's instead of the 215/65/16's I have (can't fit 15's due to my brakes).

Its not that expensive to do (a lift), other than the tires.

I already have oversized tires for the winter... I wonder how much it would be for me to lift mine safely and reliably.

Cheap set of Forester take-off's or some spacers, the rear swaybar brackets and trailing arm brackets from a 97-99 Outback and you'd be set.

I have around $110 in my lift but spent $650 in wheels/tires.

Used Forester Struts and Springs $60
New Forester rear trailing arm brackets $50

215/65/16 General Grabber AT2s $500
Stock 04 WRX wheels $150
2 cans of Flat Black paint $10

Lifted WRX FTW!

I don't get it I have the exact same set up on my 02 but it doesn't look nearly that tall.
