you're right awd staggered is bad.. you can run all the same sizes but different offsets like: fronts would be 18x9.5 +35 then rear 18x9.5 +20 for example

someone please find a set of silver 521's in 5x100

it sucks that 5x114's gets all the good colors on the 521's (silver, gold, gunmetal, black... 5x100 only gets all flat black)

i talked to NLmotoring and we COULD get a set of 521's or any other any size, any bolt pattern but we'd need to get a group buy of atleast 15 sets...

Anybody fitted 527's in a Subaru?

Would 18X8.75J +20 poke much? I mean to have to pull fenders hard.

Has anyone actually tracked with the XXR's? Like any AutoX events, not so much hours and hours of road course or time attack stuff, but I'd like to gauge quality a bit. I understand completely that you get what you pay for, but I'm on the fence with these 527's or going one step up to the Rota T2R...I don't wan't to get all crazy with camber, but a 18x9.75 +20 I just don't see fitting very well without big time fender work. I will be running coilovers as well.

hey, this might be a noob question.. but i plan on getting 522s 17x8 +48, and i currently have prodrive springs on my RS so it's a little dropped.

does anyone know if i'll be fine? or would i have to make adjustments?

I am thinking about 17x9 522s with the 25 offset. I am on coilovers, will that wheel require fender work? Also, will I need any kind of stretched tire to run that? Sorry if these are stupid questions. Thanks in advance.will these clear brembos also?

Haha, very nice! 5x100 is definitely pretty restrictive. I'm just looking forward to my 527's!
