uncle scotty- I do want different wheels but cant get them now.
nhat- why not?
It's not just offroad ability it's also a case of protecting the flimsy stock rims from the rocks in our roads. I live on a dirt road with lots of rocks. Not gravel but lumpy rocks all over. I daily drive my sti on dirt road and over a twisty paved mountain pass daily.
Prefer not to downsize rim do to the loss in brake size. Smaller rims work well on the dirt but the smaller brakes were not as gratifying once we hit the paved.
thanks for all responses
