How the **** are you making it cost $325 to ship wheels? It should be under $200 unless you're shipping 125 pound semi truck tires.

Someone from NY previously asked, and when I called fedex, told them it was about 45 lbs. per wheel, and I had 4 to ship, the dude quoted me $325. UPS was more expensive. Nothing to hide, here.

They're retarded. Most people say they can ship them with UPS in 2 separate shipments for $100 or less, although I think $150 is a more realistic goal.

Not even greyhound ships for that cheap, and they are one of the cheaper ones...but, I don't trust that expensive items would be treated with care. If you can find me someone to ship for that cheap...I welcome you to do so.

^^There ya go...business to business address and 'not' telling them what's inside the box. If they were to get damaged, in transit, even with insurance on each wheel, I'm sure they wouldn't pay out...or would have some kind of 'excuse' to not pay full value.

Again, I have nothing to hide by what I was quoted from a business to residential address, all the while disclosing what was in the box...so that I could insure them, accordingly.

Lastly, most people don't even want to add that $100-200 to ship the wheels, so, it's not worth it to even bother.

Alright good luck buying used wheels for more than new wheels, I don't think anyone's stupid enough to sell you them with that stipulation unless you're paying the stupidly high price you're getting quoted because you don't know how to ship wheels.

In any case, this isn't a thread about shipping, so, move it along. I was more than willing to split shipping, so, the purchaser would not incur the compelte cost to ship to them, anyway...which, in essence, would be half of what I was quoted.

Back to the 2.0 mods, which was the original intent of this thread. Personally, I never made any 'mods', aside from the rims/rear sway bar because to do so would be futile on an engine that is very old, and outdated. Never mind the manual transmission, which while available, was hardly all that.

Personally, it would be money better spent to mod a car like a WRX or STi, which has tons more support in the market. However, not everyone can, or wants to, dish out that kind of coin for a depreciating asset.

I remember back when Subaru used to make the Impreza Outback Sport, or whatever it was called. I think they then switched to the XV/Crosstrek platform, but, would be interesting to see if that could be done. Wonder if the XV suspension would fit onto the impreza, allowing you to retain your 17's.

Pretty sure the crosstrek has bigger wheel wells, otherwise its giant wheels and tires wouldn't fit.

If you want to pay more than just selling your car and buying a new SUV, you could do a suspension swap.
