I want to get some of those wheels for my RSti.

Edit: Found the answer to my question in the earlier post.

But another question. Since you have an RS and a BRZ, how would you compare them? I am getting into autox a lot more, and so is my girlfriend. She has an STC RS and I have an SM RS. I am thinking of selling one to get a BRZ for STX as well. Probably much more competitive than either RS?

yes squared... I have set of RS3's in 245... wanted to try 255's like the STR guys.... no seriously.. I don't have anything to compare it too other than running the 245's last year... The RS3's have about half tread left.. will be doing some testing with BFG's vs. the Z2's in the future. so we'll see how they work.. .. Just trying something new. The wheels are lighter... and the tire is heavier. so it shoule weigh about the same as my current wheel/tire package which was 44.5 lbs....No TPMS's in the new ones.. so thats like a lb ...right??

Heres a quick pic of the new setup.. can't wait to try them..



and a quick pic of the RS3 setup.. RS3's have about 115 runs on them .and about half tread..so it will be good to compare.. weight between the 2 setups are about .4 lb difference with the new setup being a bit lighter..

Well..... that sux.... BBK is Illegal... Min Thickness for stock rotor is 22mm... the new lightweight one is 20.5mm therefore not legal... Better to find out now... I guess..:/

A. Non-standard brake rotors may be used provided they are of equal or larger dimensions (diameter and thickness) and made of ferrous material (e.g., iron). Thickness includes the individual plates of a vented rotor, as well as the overall dimension.

Essex kit is 32mm thick. It is also much lighter than stock. I have it on my girlfriends STC 2.5rs.
