That is what I was thinking. It looks good on AE83's, 240's, and Miata's (along with some others). But, it's not for Subaru's IMHO. They need pure rubber under them! To each his own though.

It just seems that every other post these days is followed up by a "will be lower soon" disclaimer, as if the poster is worried that their car won't be cool until it pleases a specific group of people.
Makes me .
I think your car looks great at the height it is.

Long story short:
As the prices of turbocharged Subarus fell and their availability increased, the VW bros moved in; they invaded NASIOC, easily overtook the weaklings in the Member's Car Gallery, and it became the Hellabrah Stronghold.
The battle against stupidity wages on in other areas of the site.

As to the origins of the VW bros; no one knows for sure.
Some say that their lineage can be traced back to a single Fetal Alcohol Syndrome clinic, but everyone gets too frustrated attempting to interact with them to really find out for sure.
That, and no one really gives a ****.

lol.

I'm not into the whole hella flush thing...stretched tires, tons of camber, gay looking stickers, etc etc...though I do think it's possible to have a happy medium between filling up the wheel wells a little better, but not so much that it's detrimental to performance. I have two sets of wheels...one set for looks/daily driving(aka 'knock off wheels" with all season mild performance rubber), and one set for eatin' up the track at the autocross events(aka Volks with super sticky stuff). Coilovers to allow me to set up the car between the two driving types. I might get flamed for playing both the looks and performance cards, but I see no reason NOT to. It's all opinions, no one's right, no one's wrong. Unless you're a serious walking case of dumbassery.

I totally agree. I would hate to have to worry about popping a bead on my tires even when i get in the d**n car. As i said before i like it on some cars, but not really for subaru's. But it, as everything, is up to the individual.

AirForceBugeye: I completely agree with your setup, I just take it to the extremes (at least the daily driver part )

Jackie: That was perfect!!

The whole hella flush, dope status, or whatever else you want to call it is a crime being committed against cars by purported "enthusiasts". As Jackie said, it seems to have followed the brotato VW crowd. Luckily it seems to have run its course and is being deemed played out by more and more people.

I tried it dumped/wicked flush. not for me. I felt as if I was beating on my car just driving to work. I raised mine back up, I bought a subie for a fast well handling car. Its time I make it handle well. 17x8.5 255's! and thinking of stepping to 245's...

I can see going to 9" wide wheels but more than that is overkill. As far as looks go the perfectionist in me says that that half inch that 8.5" wheels leave open isn't good enough. Half an inch more is perfect to me. With the right adjustments in height 9" wide wheels don't take away from performance enough to really even notice. At least in my car and the way I drive. Maybe it's just me? I don't know. A lot of the time when I see the hella flush cars it looks to me like the wheels are NOT flush...the majority of them look like the wheels stick out past the body. So it's kinda hypocritical to me when they say "flush". That and I hate looking at wheels that look like they're about to fall off the car 'cause they have so much negative camber for fitment. I get so damn tired of seeing that. It aggravates me knowing they're gonna burn through perfectly good tires WELLLL before the duration that set should last. Why pay between $500-$800 for tires if you're only getting a third of the life? Throw in the fact that they shell out money for $3000+ wheels for those tires and it seems even more retarded...why risk having your tire pop off a forged wheel? I'm sure none of what i'm saying is new to any of your thoughts, i'm just having a rant moment. Good thing fads are only temporary. Body kits...RIP. Neon lighting...RIP. Etc etc etc.

Oh and even though it was a trend...I still think murdered out cars look bad ass when done right. That is all.

I had that setup a while back. I did the 2.5 shortblock with the 6 speed and DCCD. It was great while it lasted (which wasn't very long)...
Ended up pushing it too hard and it decided to quit

That's why you fully build it up before you drop it all in.

I like the wide look of the 9'' and 10'' wheels just as long it has a nice stance from all angels. None of that 225 rubber band stuff. I will be running Rota SVN-R 18x10 +30 wheels with 255/35/ rubber, will go with a wider tire later. I also love that murdered out look myself. And as you can see in the pics I have both. Oh and got the 6spd too And will be finishing it off with a wide body and a motor build with a 30R.

They look like Rota Torque 17x9 with maybe a +35 offset.
