There is a huge difference between hellafail, proper wheel/tire fitment and rally car wheel set ups. The more you talk the more you sound like a complete fool. You would probably think a set of 255/35/18s are rally tires with your broad statement.

On a street car set up you want to go with as wide a tire as you can, with clearence permiting, not extending past your fenders (want wider then get wider fenders, fender flares or have them rolled by a professional), with just enough sidewall and enough suspension travel to keep from rattling your teeth out of your mouth and provide ample grip and to keep the car planted firmly.

Excessive camber with no suspension travel is the sign of a clueless fad following poser. No better than the morons who cut their springs because they are too cheap or broke to get a proper lowering spring kit. Dont get me wrong, hellaflush on a show car is perfect for that sort of thing but outside of the show its a joke.

A proper alignment is in all purposes a hell of a lot better than chewing through the inside edge of your tires and having to replace them in less than half their life expectancy. Not to mention too stiff of a suspension is prone to make the care react violently to various road conditions and driving habits which in turn could cause an accident when you inevitably lose control of the car due to your poor wheel, tire and suspension choices.

Do your self a favor and put the shovel down, you are only digging your self a deeper hole.

The cheaper the resale gets the worse its going to be. Subaru is the new Honduh.
What pisses me off is the stupid wheel tire fitments and stupid camber that becomes unsafe. Which when you crash you do not want to own up. So you collect from the insurance and cause all our rates to go up.

All why? So you look cool with you plade shirts and pegged pants while driving around with a bicycle on your roof, A bicycle that you will never ride unless you crash your car some place when the ball joint snaps.

Looks like I am that plaid shirt wearing, bicycle riding, scene douche, hipster that you speak of!



Improper super dangerous fitment with -4 degrees of camber in the rear and 225 40s on a 9.5" wheel..... plus bags! OMGZZZZZZ

I can't wait to crash becasue of my stupidity and overall poor taste in car modifications. At least I will have the satisfaction of knowing that your car insurance will surly rise.

You do realize that everything you have said minus maybe the alignment issue is all YOUR personal prefference right? so before you go calling people out on what you think a street car should be take a minute to think about the fact that your in a thread that is for "slammed" "show stealer" cars which would obviously include cars with tire fitment against the norm to make it a show car as you even stated.

why did you quote the picture just to say that. thanks for the extra pic of he engine bay, looks real tasty.

might be the ricer in me, but I think if you powedercoated the intercooler pipes the same teal as the manifold it would look amazing.

Me and my roommates 05 on RS's

This spring I'll have a sedan front end and new wheels, can't wait! Wheels are Rotiform Concave NUE's finished in Double Dark Tint - they're sexy!

My '05 WRX. Wheels aren't that aggressive or flush, but I like the way it sits. =] Maybe i'll go just a tad wider next year.
