Just wanted to say, I've stalked this thread a few times and just love the direction you're taking your Forester. Also, I haven't thought of redding out the amber on the tail lights either! :snag: Thanks for the idea! Just ordered my vinyl

Can't wait to see the wheels mounted.

It looks Cleaner in general. And a great temp alternative for jdm tails.
Replaced my leaking water pump an timing belt. That was a pain :p
Ordered my spacers and tires, and now I wait. Then finally I'll mount em.

lol yes, my tires are mounted. for the most part everything is ready to go, i'll get pictures up soon. I swapped my studs on only one of my studs so far, its quite a pain. so this weekend going over to a friend's to finish it that has all the necessary tools (air tools lol). Other then that, hub centric rings, studs, lugs, spacers, etc. Gonna color match my tails red for the 2nd time, and have a minor thing or 2 I'm adding. So everything will be good2go, I'll have a few pictures up soon.

So tomorrow I'll be finishing up swapping my studs (with help from my friend Derek).
Then I'll finally be mounting these. Got some descent stretch out of the tires, and I'm really pleased. Also gotta thank Tony from America's tire co. for the hook up!

^

lol 8 would be too small. 8.5 is still a little small, but I didn't want to wait 2-4months for 9.5's to maybe come in. regardless im satisfied with it. I'll get a wider set up in the future.
