Great thread to flip through! Wanted to add as well.. method 502 VT with 235/70r15s





Truly need more sunshine in the day to get out and get some better pictures.
Finally somebody who went to the other end of the spectrum--whereas everybody here are going for r17s here's one of my tribe, going for r15. I'd like to go for 215/70r15 myself someday.
My concerns, does r15 have no issues with the caliper clearance?
Can I go with 215/70r15 without a lift?

Picked these STi wheels up. Debating on summer tires or AT/mud tires. Putting winters on my OEM or wrx wheels.

The Method wheels have a larger inner barrel for rally cars. Which allows it to fit larger brakes than most 15"s and equal to that of the factory 16s.

Look at Sparco, Team Dynamics and Methods for this style of wheel in a 15" to help clear your brakes.

Should be able to run 215/70r15 without a lift.
Here is a write up from my website on the Method's. https://www.blingstrom.com/blog/2018/12/17/method-502-vtspec-in-silver-they-sell-these-in-silver?rq=Method
