You like it, buy it. But just know that a wheel that costs 200/rim will not have as much engineering and strength as a wheels that is cast or forged that runs 500+/wheel.

A lot of Enkeis are aluminum, that's why they bend and crack super easy, aluminum is very soft.
Most wheels are aluminum. Cheaper wheels, including xxr, are cast aluminum. Expensive wheels are forged aluninw.

I'm way too picky about wheels

Some very expensive wheels are cast aluminum. Take OZ Ultraleggera's for example.

Hey Bruce, do you remember if the transmission you sold me was from a 99 or 2000? I'm looking to see if I have to change the rear diff on my girlfriends car as I never did before, and I think the final drive is off. It's a 98 forester L, 4EAT. I thought the final drive is 4.44 which supposedly is the same as the 99 4EAT... But the car gets like 13 mpg and hesitates to shift.

I thought all 4eats were 4.44. I honestly don't remember what year it was from. Let me see if I can find the old emails.

Alright. If they are the same, then I really cant figure out why the car gets such horrendous mileage. Ive done everything: tune up, plugs, filter, egr, 02 sensors, seafoam, ect. I mean, I know the cars got alot of miles on it, but even so, 13 mpg is crazy. Again, the car hesitates to shift too.

Any ideas?

Did you change the fluid in the trans? Not a flush, just drain and fill?

Only thing is maybe the torque convertors are different between the years?

You should always keep a torque converter matched to its transmission. Mixing and matching torque converters will lead to a short lived trans when replacing with other used parts.

Pretty sure torque converter went with the trans, but the TC module didn't, I don't think. Not sure if the modules (computers) are different.

Yeah, I def. Drained, flushed, and replaced the fluid when I did the swap. The tranny was empty anyways. I can't remember if the TC was done, pretty sure it was.

The car at it's worse got 13 mpg mixed driving even after doing a tune up and everything. It only got better after cleaning the PCV valve, Intake, and sea foaming the engine. Now it gets 16 mixed, 18 highway. Still wish I could get a little better.

Only other thoughts:

Have the roof racks on? I found my mileage went up about 2mpg with them off

Proper sized tires, proper pressure, not too sticky or nubby?

Good alignment?

Seized brake piston/caliper or bad wheel bearings?

Change rear diff fluid?

A few of us took a blacksmith workshop yesterday. All sorts of manly awesomeness were created.

I forged a knife from an old file. Came out great for a few hours of work. I'm thinking of going with a wood handle. Walnut maybe.









Railroad spike bottle opener, knife made from a rasp, crazy Viking dagger, my knife, key ring holder.
