make sure to tell them that lowering their cars are also going to make them handle like pick up trucks...

I belive he means ride height. And, what are you trying to do? I ask because all will be a little different? Are you wanting stock to compare to, or a lowered spring difference?

Don't make them run stretch tires, please for the love of god.


17x9 is more than enough on a wrx body.

Not a great idea on the WRX. Wide wheels are going to require a lot of work. As someone mentioned before 17x9 is plenty. I have seen 18X9.5 and that is the widest I would recommend on 5x100. Here is a thread to give you some ideas -

Static, I recommend posting in the "hellaflush" thread. You most likely won't get an answer anywhere else because a large majority of the population here is all about function > form.

But anyway, don't be discouraged by the nay-sayers. Slamming the car with wide wheels isn't going to have a big impact if your friends aren't running their cars at the track.

thanks a lot i appreciate it. but what these people probably dont get is there is a way to get both function and form. but my friends could care less about how fast their cars are they want a good stance. which again means lowered on wide wheels with stretched tires. but does anyone know the distance from the hub to fender front and rear on a 2002, 2005 wrx. thanks

you are right the whole point of stretching tires is so the tread is under the fender. its illegal to run tread outside of the fender.

I didn't know having a nice stance required having stretched tires on wide wheels.


Look, you seem to know a lot more than we do so go mod your friends car like a VW.

Really, I'm not trying to be a douche....just HATE the stretch tire look, especially on a Subaru.

Don't act all coy like you don't have elitists in the VW world. Need I remind you about the R32 crowd? j/k

Good luck on your search. There is a difference between safe and being outright idiotic. Hopefully you can find the safe side.

Different strokes for different folks, and IMO that last pic looks hideous. I personally prefer cars with tires that actually fit on their rims, but I'm also not into the burberry style interiors or vintage bikes on roof racks as astetics or rusted hoods, but to each his own.

What I don't get is why your "friends with subis" didn't join nasioc to ask this?
