Just installed my tarmacs shod with toyo proxes4 245-40-18.
Pic kinda sucks, it's raining out. I will update with better ones later.
I have to post up pics of my new sti interior goodies as well.

Thanks. Still have not decided what to do about the front wheel well gap. I have a set of sti springs I can install in place of the wrx ones, but I may just sell my factory wheels and buy coilovers.

that pic is weird, looks like you have rubber bands for tires, maybe 245/45 woulda filled out the wheel wells a little more. but those rims look good w/ the dgm!

Yeah, the sidewall design of the proxes make them look shorter than they are. The angle it is sitting on is not helping either.

Great grip, AS, affordable and a 300 tread wear. My buddy has a set on his rsx and I was so impressed I had to try a set for my xt.

That looks great... in fact, that's the look I want on my DGM XT also - I have been looking for some Tarmac 3s in gun metal.

Glad I could get a preview... but mine will (someday) be gun metal through and through.

The tires are new. The overall tire height is only about 3/8" shorter than my factory setup.

New pics are posted. Don't mind the dirt it has been raining for two days.
