Nice, Looks awesome. I love the 530's. I am looking to put that same size on my Saab 9-2x Aero. I have Epic Engineering Lowering Springs. You said you had to slightly roll the rears to run the 235/40R17 Tires. I want to run that same tire size and I think your springs are a little lower then mine. I am hopeing to get away with not rolling my rear fenders. If I have to, is it difficult to roll fenders? Thanks and love the silver with gold.

Think I've decided on the 530's in a 18x8.75 +35 with 235/40 tires. I think I might go gold with the WRB paint job but part of me wants to powdercoat them tennis ball yellow haha.

I assume you will have to roll your fenders just a bit. You can get negative camber for the rear if you have camber bolts which would help (I don't have camber bolts). I took a wooden bat and a heat gun to the fenders for the roll, but it isn't something I'd recommend. But for the roll I needed, it did the job. It's not difficult, just take your sweet time.

Can someone help me?

I have a 2005 WRX on stock suspension. I'm looking at getting XXR 527's 18x8.75 +35, on 225/40/18. I understand I will need to roll the back fenders, this will be done. However, I'm wondering;

What is a good over all SPRING I can use that will be the best of both worlds? Speaking of course between sport and comfort. The car is my daily, my driveway is flat, I do a lot of highway driving, but I will always take the curvy roads if the opportunity presents itself.

I've been in a STi with the Eibach springs prokit and enjoy the ride and the looks. I want to avoid all rubbing what so ever if I can. The last thing I want is to be worried while I drive.

Could I run those springs and make the wheels work? Or what else could I use that would give me a flush look?

I will really appreciate any help anyone can give me. Thank you.
