That said, props for doing something different.
I had the fenders rolled way before hand, then after doing some test fitting/driving through a dip at the tire parking lot I had to massage the pinch weld in the front wheel well and slightly trim the rocker but not much. Now it I have no rubbing at all it drives just fine. With the stock STi springs still on it and with these tires having really good sidewalls it still handles pretty good. I wanted something fast but functional, something with character, I think the GR sti with the bulging fenders fit it perfectly, it meets every single one of my needs/wants now.

Hell I've had my bone stock 2.5i muddier than some. Wanna see some mud on these things. Lol just busting balls. U all got some nice rides.
Don't you worry she willl be gettin dirty, I did this setup for an actual purpose, so I could take it camping to some places I would have been iffy on going to before
