Seriously, find some 335/30R18 winter tires. It's unpossible!

Use these.
They're a little narrower but total diameter is almost exactly the same, speedo would only read 0.2% wrong.

Those Volkswagen clowns stretch tires waaay worse than that all the time. There's a 295/35/18 snow tire too, that's less stretch.

Hey fellow Grand Rapids folks, I will be installing a new downpipe, upipe and intake on my 05 wrx in a couple of weeks. Which will lead to me needing a tune for my car.

I need to get a good tune on a tight budget , any recommendations?

Mike do the opensource thing. I have been running a romraider base map for over a year. It's a good one and safe. Plus the guy who made it is good and will help answer any questions. Saves you some money that you can put back into the car when you do more aggresive power mods. If you have any questions pm me. If you don't have a tactrix cable I am sure someone can help you out. I got mine used for like 100 bucks.

There's a local car scene?! I've been here for 10 years and still don't know of any car shows other than the Metro Cruise, hahaha... Although during the summer I spend most of my time on the bike.

Any of the GR area locals heading to Sno*Drift? More specifically, are any of you guys staying at Garland and heading up on Friday morning? Me and a couple buddies are.

BTW: If anyone ever sees the silver '08 Wagon painted like the Outback Sport, come say hi.

My IL crew is getting a string of cabins, and we might be neighbors with the IN guys who are doing the same.

A buddy of mine from Indiana, a couple friends from GR and a few from up north will be going again this year. We'll be staying at Garland Friday night. Look for the group of retards carrying Growlers of homebrew, that's us, just yell "forty!"

Lol you've been missing out. On a good night there will be 35+ cars. When it starts getting nice out, every Friday and Saturday people meet at the Wyoming sonic.
