^Those wheels make the brakes look terrible. There's room for another 2 inches of brake rotor easily...

Yup, I think it's bad ass. Stock wheels, meh, I've gotten used to them. I have so much fun just driving the car.

Ha, I was there that night. They're a good package deal, but the first city pothole and its cry about it while you wait for AAA. They do look sharp but 19s no thanks. I took a few photos like that. I still think its funny that those wheels are off my old friends GTI 20AE from D.C.

So we moved out to Denver and had to take emissions to register the car out here. Failed of course. HC, CO, and CO2 were fine but my NOx level was 5.1 gpm where the limit is 1.5. Any idea why? Im going to take it back in a few days and let it really warm up before it gets tested again. Have a cat on it already and hoping its not that. Have aftermarket headers, downpipe with cat, and catback for the exhaust.

Isnt egr valve for that? Exhaust gas recirculation. Supposed to lower nitrogen oxide? That is what the cat does also.

NOTE: wrx does not have an egr valve so i would check the cat, or add some fuel to the tune maybe?

I'll check my emissions book because i can't remember exactly but i think the leaner the afr the higher the NOx level. If there doing just a idle test then there isn't much you can do because the engine is in closed loop, might just be that the cat is sub par but let's hope not

They actually put the car on rollers and get it up to normal operating speed. 50-60 mph.

Could be way off but aren't most high flow cats bogus for sniffer tests? Especially on the turbo scoob since you are replacing 2-3 with just 1, usually further from the heat too. Even the OBDII picks that up, which is why you get a CEL without a tune. I'd think a tailpipe measurement would be more sensitive since they're looking for more specific gasses and levels.

Admit I don't know jack about sniffer tests but seems logical that it could cause probs.

^That sucks that they are actually doing a sniffer test even on an OBDII car. But I guess that's the price you must pay if you want to smoke weed legally.

that's why i'd give you like, the same deal he gave me!

i do think you overrate the protection 3/4 inch more flexible rubber sidewall gives a wheel. the unsprung mass, and it's ability to move out of the way of and with an obstacle, and damp the impulse is more important for not bending wheels than just having strong hoops. the strength of aluminum is finite, and most any quality wheel will have a similar hoop and bead profile, and thus similar resistance to bending. if being about, but keeping below the plastic deformation of that material is the goal, changing the moving mass is more effective way to do that than adding a bit more steel reinforced rubber bumper onto the impulse point.

what i'm saying is heavy and cheap wheels are more likely to bend.

Heavy cheap(cast) wheels are more likely to crack. Your 19" forged SSRs are more likely to bend and that's why I'm not doing either. Thanks...

Anyone have a good recommendation on where to get wheels fixed locally? Valet in NYC curbed my TCiii and I need to get one repowderocated and possible a small weld to fix the damage. Was going to send them out to wheel collision in Bath but if I can do it local I would rather do that for sure
