Those would look baller. You'd need a hefty fender pull to fit 10s!

These are 18s I believe
i think +20 would be perfect with a little stretch, im +35 and i could easily fit a 10mm spacer

But you're 9 wide (I'm guessing) not 10? And it's harder to fit when you're actually tucking like he is

Honestly I want 10s but would much rather get 9s since I know I can fit those no problem + they are easy to find. The problem is I cant find 17x9 5x100 anywhere. I Would prefer to keep offset under 25. I wanna stay with 17s btw. Idc if they are reps or real and according to the BBS website they only have the RS in 19s and even at that there are no 5x100 bolt patterns.

Look up STR or Wagen wheels, they have all types of BBS reps in 5x100

I used to tuck when I first put my coils on I've raised it since then. Honestly I would love to get bbs wheels and max my coils out but I have too many miles on my car and it's too slow, should be in the market for an sti soon fingers crossed

Yea I found Both BBS RS reps from both vendors. However the same problem only available in 17x8.5 and 17x10 from STR and Wagen wheels only had 17x7.5. Felgen Works only has 17x7.5 and 17x8.5 Y U DO THIS WHEEL COMPANIES.

Also I looked at the Privat Remembers in Silver and they look great. HOWEVER I only see them in +30 in 5x100 :/ unless im missing something.

With the money you're saving on reps buy 10 mm spacers all around and honestly go with the 8.5, 10 you could probably fit but for the extra inch and a half it's not worth the hassle

I just don't want a 8.5 lol! I would prefer 17x9 Although 17x9.5 would be ok as well. I would go with a 17x10 if the offset was 25-30. Don't want the wheel so close to the strut.
Honestly the 17x9 +30 Privat Remembers would be perfect if my fenders weren't pulled so much already. The Remembers would only be sunken in a half inch from were I am sitting now, eh idk ill have to think about it. If the remembers came in 17x9 +20 in 5x100 I would be allllllllll over them.

I installed my coilovers yesterday getting an alignment now after that if its not to cold im going to try and set the ride height. I couldn't find any shop around my house to install the for under 700 and both subaru dealerships I called said they only install factory parts. So I lost my warranty but I've read lots of reviews on how good the coilovers are so I'm really not worried about quality. Cxracing coilovers bolted with out a problem everything fit great.

Umm you might wanna get the alignment after setting the height. You align the car not the wheels/suspension. So height change will mess with the alignment.

So every time someone adjusts the height on their car they have to get another alignment? And I decided to get the alignment before setting the height because when I put everything back together the front had way way to much + camber

Always get an alignment, otherwise your tires will wear out fast because of having bad Toe, happened to me when I dropped it 3/4" more and my fronts were bald from camber/toe wear in less than 3 months. Save yourself the hassle

Was trying to get away from spacers. The problem with 10mm spacers is that I would need to change the studs on all 4 corners.
