just to be more flush. it just looks ugly with the front flush and rear a lil more tucked. dont know why subaru did that. same issue with legacys as well.

I'm new to the wheels/rims thing, what does the numbers mean?
i wouldnt say black wheels look dumb. i think its the best color for dgm, or any color. just the size of rim and offset is what looked bad.

Tires, 225/40/18. 225 being tire width. 40 being tire height. 18 being wheel size.
well explained.
