Things is getting crazy on here. The common trend I hear from my friends locally is in order to pull off a lip and mesh type wheels you have to be low and have almost no fender gap.

While not as aggressive as some of you guys are running, I decided to make the jump to 18's and probably lower my car a bit more. I am picking up a set of these this weekend:

Those OEM STi wheels I am getting are only 8.5 but I am going to be running a 255 tire on them.

If we were to ever go back to a 8.5 wheel the OEM STI wheels would be my choice. This is the 2nd set of 9.5's we have ran. I think the Hankook RS3's are wider than the Dunlop SpSport 600's even though both are the same size (245/40/18).

After we finally do a trans swap we will look into fitting 265-275 tires.

If I didn't have these stupid WRX brakes to clear, I'd probably have a similar photo already... but I ended up having to search harder for wheels that will clear my brakes without needing 20mm spacers.

This thread makes me want to show off this picture again. My plan is to get some wider barrels to make them 16x9...
