Default Doh! Time for new rims!

First off Michigan drivers suck.
I pull into Subway behind a Ford Focus,and instead of pulling into a spot the moron slams on his brakes and throws it into reverse with me right behind him,I swerve to avoid him and clip a foot high retaining wall Both passenger side rims are chewed up,and the rear mud-flap has a little scuffing.Touched up the mudflaps.As for the wheels they are straight,its only cosmetic. Come summer time once I get my P7's I'll dismount the tyres,clean the scratches up and have them powder-coated for winter use.No suspension damage and I was really hoping to bend a strut so I would have an excuse to order up STi units

Ben,


Worst part is my new talking ballast was in the passenger seat! Way to show off the skills huh?

No no no! Don't get P7s - I did and had rubbing issues. Of course I have an SF and was running 225/50-17 which may have had something to do with it. Search this forum for "P7" and "fiasco" and read of my ordeal.

Sorry to hear of the scuff-up.

There stockers, **** happens I guess. Worst part is I wanted to keep driving,but my Navi insisted we stop,He thought there might be body damage. I'll clean em up with a disc sander and powder coat them gold come summer.

Hmmmmmm

Anybody running P7's on an SG yet? I thought I saw them on a Prodrive special edition car. Maybe I'll have to test fit a set before hand....

I had P7's on my RS but sold them after I found out the offset on the Forester is 48 and the P7's were 53 I think. Plus they are pretty heavy and I wanted something lighter.

I have seen a picture of a sg Forester womewhere with P7's on it. Seems like it was rally blue with SWRT graphics on it or something of that nature. AM I crazy or does it exist?

IIRC that was one of Prodrives cars, They also had a Baja as well.

I just got off the phone with Prodrive and they say it will fit. Guess its worth a shot.
