Default 18x9.5 et45 TRMotorsports MT1 wheels on '11 STI Sedan

Since these wheels seem to have a bit of a lack of coverage, I figured I'd contribute.

Still on OEM 245/40R18. It would certainly look better with 265's but for now, these tires will do.

Exactly. IMO should only be running that much camber for a purpose other then fitting wheels.

Nice shoes though, have a very clean OEM-ish look to them, not flat faced either the minor lip is nice.

Would be outstanding in a dark grey/bronze too

I blame my fingers, not my brain.

Thanks, I do wish they had some alternatives for colors, but the matte grey seems to work well with just about any color.

This fitment seems to be about ideal for width and offset to be able to run 265's with only a minor roll.

I had some difficulty making the decision due to a lack of pictures outlining the things I tried to capture, so hopefully this will help someone out.

Your pictures really show the concaveness of the 9.5" wide version. The MT1's are on my list of potential wheels next spring along with 18x9" OZ Ultraleggeras, 18x8.5" Speedline 2120...the list goes on

Good luck. They stopped making them last year.
