And well, haters gonna hate, those being negative about the wheels prolly also would bash me for having my car on air ride. And flame me even more for stretching tires on them. But to each there own. Ill update with another pic when I get them on the car this weekend
IMO, it's not the style or the trends you follow or the colors you pick that's to be appreciated here- it's the quality of work. I definitely like seeing that. Much better than seeing someone rattle can their wheel faces and somewhat polish them. Job well done is what I see here!

Yea I'm thoroughly anti-stance/hella flush and all that form>function business. But I appreciate anything that is different, especially when so much hard work has gone into it. Clearly you care, and did a great jaerghb. Awesome wheels.

im gonna catch a bunch of flak for this, but i like air ride, if youre not tracking it then who cares! if i had the money, i would probably slap an air ride system on, subies look so good sitting on the floor!
I get the car back tomorrow I took it to get wrapped, will post pics of them on tomorrow night. and I can agree with you more.

old pic.

thanks a lot! I really did put a lot of time into these to get them to where they are now. sometimes im too much of a perfectionist, I think i sanded/polished the one wheel 3 times to get it so i was satisfied

Do me a favor, Brrr_WRX. Take a picture of your car with the suspension set as high as it will go. I see how it is pancaked in the picture above, but I'm curious how much travel the suspension has, potentially.

I'm quoting this post because I couldn't find the picture in the original reply.

But I like how everyone is building replicas of some of the more famous cars that came off this forum a few years back. That's like the 4th one now. Literally. Almost exact.

It appears to be slightly higher than stock. How does it ride when it's fully raised like that?

Except in the winter, right?

I've never driven or been a passenger in a bagged car so I'm curious how the ride compares to stock or to a car on coilovers.

the clean up is REALLY REALLY impressive. I truly appreciate the effort that went into taken a set of "meh" wheels and dramatically improving their appearance.

with that said, your spikes are completely disgusting, and all your effort was offset by a desire to look like an asshat.

I dont really drive much in the winter, I think I had it out in the snow once and I know it wasnt all the way up.

I could care less what other people do to their cars, except for the fact that when I see one like yours all I can think is... "Man... Sooo much money that could've been spent making it fun to drive..."

Which also raises the question, why do you form guys bother buying a turbocharged car if it's going to be rendered useless? Why not start with a base impreza? Honest question.

it is fun to drive, I've drivin na cars then gotten in mine and you feel the pull from the turbo. when people do engine mods regardless they always want more because at some point 400 whp gets boring to them. I have fun driving this with just an exhaust and intake, I have no real desire to make it crazy fast, the state speed limit here is still 65 lol. so I'd rather build a car I can look at and gaze upon beauty.

**although a ej207 with rotated setup and shaved bay is in the near future lol

I know the hard work that pertains to sanding/polishing the lips, stripping the faces, reassembling, lastly applying sealant!



You did a great job on the lm's!

Mind if I ask who wrapped it and about how much it cost to get done?

Ps I love the effort that went into those LMs, they are my dream wheel. I never was a fan of two tone wheels but to each his own, I would've polished up the faces too then sealed them if they were mine... But they never will be the struggle is real!

Five star auto designs, he starts at $1800 w/o jambs. polishing them woulda been nice but I like the contrast of the white and color of the car. Theyre my dream wheel too, so OG. btw, no need to seal LM. they're only two piece just bolt and loctite
