I really don't give a damn what anyone says! XXR's newer wheel designs are awesome! For example the new 527D Polished with a gunmetal face:

or the 557 flat black and bronze

Im new to the wrx world and am looking to get the xxr 530 in gold. My only question is quality. I come from the 4x4 toyota world and have had good and bad experiences with cheaper wheels. Is there anything I need to know about xxr wheels? This is my daily driver and dont want to spend crazy money on wheels. Just want to put them on and somewhat forget about it. Any input on the quality of xxr wheels?

why did you go so wide and such an aggressive offset? you can fit them with rolling and pulling your fenders and a **** load of camber but its going to ruin your car. say bye to a fun car.

Naah. Don't listen to these guys that haven't ever put on wide wheels. There are plenty of ways to make wide wheels fit on these Subarus and not totally wreak havoc. The main issue is wheel bearings. These Subies aren't meant for 18x10s and will take a toll on the wheel bearings but other than that, with a roll and some camber adjustment, you'll be fine. Just be prepared to spend some dough on tires since wear patterns will be affected.

ya you can fit them but you are going to have understeer as well. look up 'th3 clap' on google. i think its that or something really similar but since you have an 05 sti you are going to have to take that little rear fender off to pull.

Anyone know if 18x8.5 +30 521s will fit a narrowbody 08 hatchback? Preferably without rolling but I'm fine with a mild roll.
