+1, IMO those style wheels belong on euros and rare occasions they can work on subaru's.

I would like to hear the exhaust setup though!
Also what coils are you running IIIwakee2.5na?

He just said Racelands..

It's missing a critical part of a car, the suspension.

Agreed. Love your whole setup, but I can't fall in love with the wheels. That exhaust must sound amazing!

That's roughly ONLY 15% less... I'd consider 30+% discount to be good deal for used product.

Yep for 850 you could buy some racelands and have some change to spare. ISC's run around that price range if im not mistaken and for a little more, you could buy a brand new set of BC's.

Were you the one that bought them used and had them rebuilt? I remember reading something like that on here.

Restart kit? Just move the sensors from the old wheels to the new wheels. The only requirement is a new set of TPMS valve stems that the wheels can accept.

I've had my sensors on 5 different sets of wheels now. Piece of cake.

If your tire shine is slinging onto your paint... you need to stop using that ghetto Auto Zone/ Pep Boys shiny crap.

Look into Adam's VRT.
