5x100 for all gen Impreza/Crosstrek.

I have a 14 Crosstrek. Might be willing to let go of the wheels down the road after I get some other wheels. Don't want anything special, just something different. I don't care about the car that much. My 17 Impreza is getting all the love.

When the Crosstreks first came out I was thinking how awesome those would be with a turbo setup ie ej255 or ej257 swaps. The want is strong for me too with a turbo setup maybe in the near future

BTW, here is what I'm thinking of doing... thoughts y'all?

Following Tiag's lead and using Fozzy suspension to get ~2" lift.. and maybe some Crosstek wheels. https://i.imgur.com/F6V9AP3.png Photocred to Sublime40.

So weird seeing 17" wheels on that. I kinda like it... Maybe a different colored Impreza? Black might make it snap.

Yeah, black might be better, but that is what I have to work with, lol.

Looks better than I thought honestly

Legacy/Outback finally went 5x114.3. Now that turbo models are coming back, they're almost to STI territory.

Updated milage shot from this weekend. Went go carting in Des Moines, fun for kiddos (not fast enough for adults). Almost six years with the FXT, longest car we've owned. Second longest was my 07 STi.

My JDM STI hybrid WRX is closing in on 200K now. WE bought it new when living in Homer when Luke was still 2 months from leaving his mom's body. He is driving it to school now and LOVING it.

We ride nearly daily. I have 8 bikes currently...all running. We mainly ride dirt bikes but I still have two Aprilias (the original 2003 Tuono v-twin and a 2002 Mille R). Also have a FJR1300. Florida street riding is great right now, but miserable in mid summer due to the heat.

We race KTM's in the Florida hare Scrambles series. My youngest, Luke, rides a 2018KTM350 in Open B. I split time between a 2017250XCF and a KTM300 XC two stroke and ride in the Master A class which is for riders 50 years old up to 55 years old.

The Tuono 1100 V4 is a stunning bike. The RSV4 Won superbike of the year...again. It is a breathtaking machine. The motor has the sweetest exhaust note of anything out there. The handling is impeccable, almost telepathic. The electronics package is better than any other manufacturer's by a good margin. Read some articles on them.
The https://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/content.php is the site you'd want to use. I never had any issues with any of my many Aprilias when I lived in Alaska. Rode to San Francisco and Seattle then back to AK. Nothing other than tires, brake pads, chain and sprockets. I did have to replace batteries and a starter relay but that was it in over a decade of ownership there in the 907. The shop that runs the forum is renowned for being excellent to their customers.

If you want something different than a run of the mill JAP bike and lean toward the exotic, Aprilia is at the top of the list in my mind.
