I think by that logic it would just be best to not buy a wheel/tire combo that costs more than $3200 minus your comprehensive deductable

I missed the word stock from his original post. I was thinking he had high end aftermarket wheels

I think they quoted the wrong wheel but that's their problem. https://www.1stsubaruparts.com/partscat.html They show the WRX 17" wheel is list price of $359 and Your Price of $302. So 4 wheels + 4 tires ($236 on Tire Rack) + tpms = $2600

Both are dedicated summer tires. Yes I know r compounds would be better but streeting r compounds is dumb you will never get them and keep them hot.

Just got this back from the paint shop. Gonna Install this weekend. Making a trip to Fastenal tomorrow to grab some Stainless Steel Hardware, Washers, Lock Rings, and Nylock Nuts.

Sorry for the crappy Photos all I had handy was a 8 Megapixel point and shoot. The pictures make the clear look like it has orange peel but its just the camera. When I get it on this weekend I'll get some proper shots with my buddy's T3i DSLR.

I'm assuming you're talking to me? IDK, didn't quote me.

Why is it "ghetto speak" ?

"that's why I buy Rotas"
No he didn't say bought.

I just didn't quote him word for word.

Maybe I should have, would make me less of a hood rat

Tell me more...

Exactly....and those are amazing tires. So these cars definetly need meat.

An ej255 would pull a premium one week before racewars.

By break loose, do you mean understeer in the corners because they're so heavy? That's the main problem I see.

I can chirp 2nd with the Star Specs and 3rd with the snow tires with hard shifts a straight line, but I don't see that as a huge issue.

On track coming out of hard corners mainly. Playing on the street I can get them to do it too.

Yeahhhh, I don't see a WRX/STi needing 4x275s either (1100 mm tread width total) when a Porsche 911 Turbo S is only running 235s in the front and 305s in the back (1080 mm tread width total) with 530 hp and more weight to cart around (3500 lbs).

Adding unsprung weight is bad and putting fatter wheels and tires than you need is a great way to introduce more unspring weight.

I agree. I think some people take the wheel/tire thing a little far. To an extent it does help but a lot of a time it is more of a bandaid.
