I've had my Forester for less than a week but the mods have already started. I got my windows tinted on Saturday and just got my wheels put on tonight. I'm keeping the stock tires until the end of summer, then I think I'll upgrade. Ordered some Rally Armor mud flaps this morning and also have a sport grille on the way. Next will be the stereo and roof rack attachments. I'm having a lot of fun so far!!

wheels: 17x7.5 +45mm Drag DR-35 in gunmetal w/ machined lip

Nice! Love the tint and those wheels are one of my finalists when I can afford them! In black though. I've already spent so much in the first couple of months. It is fun though! The sport grille is a good option and you should get the underspoiler too. I got those and then tint, alarm with remote start, Kenwood stereo, amp, sub, splash guards, speakers, so the wheels have to wait!

looks nice, the 17's just look so small on the SH's but I like them. The SH just screams for 18s or 19s

^^ I am thinking the same thing, they do look a tad small. It's especially true on rims with the machined lip, you almost have to go up another inch just to make up for that.

bigger tires are a definite. What size would you recommend?

Good start. Tint is always a must and the rims are a nice touch, but could be bigger. Might just be the chrome around the edge of the rim that make them look small.
