So I have had my 15x7 offset 15 MR502 wheels for over 4 months and I love them they poke a lil bit but minor worried. The rear fenders need a lil more pulling. I am running a 195/60R15 firestone winter force.

I'm not selling anything simply providing information. TireRack, the forum sponsor will happily sell you some though.

Show me where it says I can't post pictures in this sub section. Don't like it, not interested, don't come in.

Everybody in here was asking for pictures of them on cars. I've provided that for most of the common applications. What a bother that is.

Yes, I understand you aren't technically selling anything.

But you stated you're an employee, but all you're doing is bumping this thread with pictures, and subvertly advertising.

Nothing says you can't post pictures, but this is a technical forum. not an image forum.

if you want to simply post pictures, do it in the appropriate sub-forum. You don't need to get defensive.

I'm not defensive, I'm explaining myself to you after you attacked me for doing nothing wrong and providing exactly what everyone but you were asking about even though you're not a moderator.

What are your technical questions, what did you come here to learn that has not been presented? Do you have any other questions regarding wheel design, testing, stage rallying. Let's get technical!

That's what I thought, was hoping since they are used on the new rally 2015 sti's they may have some special construction that would work.

There is no such special construction that can make something of a larger diameter fit into something with a diameter that is smaller. Our 17 and 18 inch wheels do clear Brembos without issue though.

Subaru USA doesn't use Brembos, same goes for almost all other cars setup to run mostly on gravel. The large Brembos that come standard on the STI are not necessary as smaller brakes have more than enough stopping power to over power the available friction on a gravel surface. They also increase unsprung weight and generally only are a positive in terms of performance for guys doing track days with repeated heavy braking.

Subaru USA used to run AP Racing CP6720 calipers with ~300mm rotors. This year they have switched to Alcon.
