Of corse Rota grids look sweet. They are modeled after the most beautiful wheel of all time. The Volk TE37

I can fit 17x8.5 ET48 no problem , for this season I'm buying some 17x9 ET42 wheels and will test fit 275/40/17's for the track. Myself, I'm going for all out performance not looks. I'll have the coilovers and camber plates on, I can run up to about -3, -3.5 degrees camber. Ideally I'd like -2 max for the street.

For a second there,

I thought having an aggressive fitment Forester would be uncool :p...

I wish there was more room on the SF to take wider wheels. I really like the look of G-Forces on jwright's SG even though its a little stretched. I'm thinking of something similar in grey for my SF.

What's the offset of those wheels?

The stretch is the tire though, I have some 245/40 tires that should help, and all the pics I took were with the tire @ 42psi, I never realized that the wheel mount place never adjusted it. So at 32 they don't look as bad. I am waiting for my P45's to get out from the sandblaster and painted and then I am going to move the 235's over to those and sell em.

Let's hear what everyone thinks:

Currently have:
KYB AGX struts
05 Prodrive STi specific springs
17x7.5 +48 Rota T2's with 235/50
(no rubbing)

Want to run:
18x9.5 +38 Rota Grids with either 245 or 255 tire

If I slap in some camber bolts and get rolled can I make this work without rubbing like a crazy or do I need to get camber plates or coils? And for those warning about wheel bearing destruction, how bad would that setup be?

That sounds exactly like the setup Mark tried on his fozzie in post #2.
You would need some serious camber to make that work properly.

i agreee w/ dude, the only way to achieve that much negative camber will be camber plates. the bolts can only do so much...

Have you guys seen this? lol.





I don't think he's on here. I know he's WRX 2.0L swapped with a 6 speed with a WRX R160 rear diff. He was one of the first people to see the FSTI while it was in the process of being completed. East coast and Zephyr's wiring FTW!

^yup there is actually a thread about him already...
https://www.subaruforester.org/vbulle...-hiding-52752/


good idea of adding him to this thread. I completely forgot to add his fozzie to the aggressive wheel thread.

I've mentioned to him about posting on here, but he never gave me a direct response about it, sort of ignored the topic.

I saw a post he made on Nasioc about this board and he said he lurks but hasn't joined up yet. Not sure if that means he's planning to or not.

Sooooo who has some camber plates they want to give me?! Maybe I should start the AWFF (Aggressive Wheel Fitment Fund) and start collecting donations...

You know you all want to see it!
