2000 Impreza RS 2.5

Default New owner of 2000 Impreza RS has some questions

Hello, I am buying a 2000 Impreza RS 2.5 sedan tommorrow and I have a few questions.

1 - Anyone know of a good Subaru shop in Atlanta? I would prefer an enthusiast shop to a dealer when it comes to getting my car worked on.

2 - I am moving high into rockies in a month or two (Vail) and am wondering if there is a good year round tire I should get or if I should go with sticky summer tires and a set of specialized snow tires?

3 - What is considered the "standard" for aftermarket rims, specifically I want to fullfill my rally car fantasy with those yellow ones. ( you know like in gran turismo)

I am kind of sad because I had to sell my miata this week. I hope the RS will be fun and useful in the mountains.

Mark

A lot of people like Rota rims cuz they are cheap and imitations of more popular rims. If you go with those, I would get the from this guy: www.subydude.com

As far as tires go, I have been using Pirelli P7000's year round and have had no difficulty at all, however a lot of people like to get winter and summer tires on different sets of wheels. It is all up to you.

1- Subaru of Gwinnett is both a Dealer and an enthusiast shop. Ask for Jason Porter, the performance parts manager (goes by Porter here)

2- Your choice. All seasons are tolerable at everything, but not especially good at anything. If your wallet allows it, I would say nice sticky summer tires and good quality snows on steel rims for the winter.

3- No real standard. Prodrive builds excellent subaru specific wheels in all colors and multiple styles. I like the P7, and the P1 the best. O.Z. Superleggras in gold are very nice, and fairly 'standard'. Either one of those will get you the Gran Turismo look. If you want 98% of the looks of the Prodrive and O.Z.'s, and 90% of the performance for less than half the price, look at Rotas. Specifically www.subydude.com as an excellent source for Rota wheels. I have Rota Tarmacs in Steel Grey on my black MY01 RS:



Welcome to the Atlanta crew. You have the best looking Subaru ever. If only it could have been a coupe.....

The best place to go for Subaru work in the Atlanta area would be Airborne Motorsports.
