sexyypants, the current price listed on tirerack 148 so 592 for four

Its been very windy here, the upgraded sway bar which went on today certainly did its job the car is definitely not so prone to the wind, I was shocked. Man the oem bar is tiny cornering has improved no need to slow down or down shift a bit for a particular sharp turn I like to take.

sorry cellphone pics, no high res till it warms up for photoshoot
the back looks lower cause it has the oem wheels and junk weighing it down.

I like the color combo. They look like 16's and not 17's on the car though.

Couldn't find any quality lug nuts in red that I liked. I would get some mcguard in black but for 100 bucks I will stick with the regular silver ones.

Default ateq quickset works with 2013 tpms

Ateq tpm Quickset works with 2013 subaru impreza

I have aftermarket sensors in the wheels: TPMS: 315 MHz Tire Pressure Sensor

I was able to retrieve the sensor id for winter tires and then I entered in the summer wheel sensor ids and then updated the cars ecu. I then retrieved from car's ecu to confirm that the new codes for the summer wheel were in the computer. I will update this thread after a few hundred miles. So far no occurance of the tpms light. The total for the tpms sensors wass 144, the tpm quickset was 150, Dealerships sometimes charge 100 or more to do the switch over. Some members on nasioc have the quickset for sale for cheaper than 150. i will update the other tpms threads after I have clocked a few hundred miles and a week without the light.

ATEQ QuickSet TPMS Reset Tool : Amazon.com : AutomotiveATEQ QuickSet TPMS Reset Tool : Amazon.com : Automotive



ateq quickeset version 3.02 Beta 8
Version 3.02 Beta8 - V
quickset firmware: QD1-45
Database version: 20130108

Installed the drivers first, then installed the ateq software.
After software install ran update with tpms device plugged in.
Updated database and device
Choose 2012 subaru impreza even if you have a 2013 as they are the same car
NOTE: WHEN ORDERING FROM TIRERACK HAVE THEM SEND YOU THE SENSOR IDS, YOU HAVE TO TELL THEM THIS WHEN YOU ORDER AND ALSO WHEN THEY CALL TO TELL YOU THAT YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE DEALERSHIP TO INITIALIZE THE NEW SENSORS.

FYI:TPMS provisions were updated end of 2011

much like the gorilla lug nuts the paint starts to chip, never had that issue with the mcgard lugs so thats why I didn't do the color match. The reds would look awesome but like I said a quality pair would cost a bit.

I would get those that way the chrome wheel lock would not look out of place or could do the blue version to match the center cap. Either way I will skip it and just buy something else with the $70

Wheel locks are a waste...just my opinion though!

They stop most of the kids that try to steal your wheels especially in nj. I can't event leave the crossbar or bike rack even if I lock them because they will be gone by the am

Yeah I guess. I just lost all faith in them when I found out you can go to any auto parts store and buy universal wheel lock removal tools (that you only need a ratchet to use) and have them off in no time.

I had the Rays lugnuts on my Volks. The ones that are 200 full price. They looked amazing, and weighed nothing. Makes the wheels impossible to steal. But if it's cold, they are also impossible to remove without power tools. lol

How did these make the wheels impossible to steal? I had a set on my Volk CE28N's and they would have still been steal-able. Also, why would you use power tools on aluminum lug nuts? (or any lug nuts for that matter?) I've always used a breaker bar to remove my lugs and a torque wrench to tighten them.

lol You took that too literally.

The lugnuts were the one needing the key for the one, but they were very deep set into the spokes, thus providing no clearance to try to remove them without the key.

And I don't know what climate you're in, but mine never wanted to budge when it was under 30. And that was hand tightened.

Anyone have any Enkei Rajin Gunmetal pictures to share. Shopping for new rims and having a hard time pulling the trigger without any visual.
