    That wheel fitment you had was alright. You may need a little rear fender rolling due to your +42 offset. Factory offset it +55 on an 8in wheel. 245-255 width tire. You are going same size all around, right? They should look good though!

    I will be getting the fenders rolled within the next week or 2 so they are done and out of the way. As soon as I can get a buyer for the stockies lined up I will order the BR10's and get them wrapped with BFG KDW2's in 255/35's on all four corners. Should look pretty beefy! No hellaflush crap here hahaha

    I'm actually running 18x9's with +45 offset and 255/18/35's right now and I have no rubbing issues whatsoever. I have a 2011 sti sedan, but I would think the fitment would be fairly close. The fact that the car has very little body roll helps.

    45's have no rubbing issues in the front??? If so I may have to reconsider my wheel options

    That's what I'm talking about! I like where you're head's at!

    And for the record...I grew up down south. Dad's from Tennessee...his mom, my grandmother, went by the name Mammal. I suppose it was started as Mam Ma, but it evolved to Mammal

    3rd one, hmmm

    Sounds like you are WRX'er for life. You just might get the itch for a 4th when the prototype seen recently becomes a reality in a few years.

    Nice. I have been eying the Enkei Tenjin's since they first came out but I am not really digging the polished lip look anymore. Also, they come in an 18x9.5 +45 and I am almost certain I'd need spacers in the front and maybe a mild fender pull. Not worth going through the hassle for an extra half inch you know?

    Thanks man! I should have titled this thread, "mammals hellafunctional hatchback" lol. I am all about that clean look. No stickers, badges, chrome, or anything else along those lines. Less is more!

    My last name is Hamel so growing up my buddies always called me Mammal so I got used to it lol. I may be investing in a house down in Asheville NC in a few years and if I move there my forum name may become more prominent then!!! hahahaha

    Oh man I guess so! haha I don't really dig the new 4th gen at the moment but give it time and it will grow on me. I remember I absolutely hated the 3rd gen abut after working at the local subaru dealer and seeing the couple wrx's we had on the front lawn I ended up driving one home. Yep, should have waited a year or 3 and waited for the upgrades!

    I agree that the machine lip on the Tenjin is not the greatest looking. I ended up going with the Enkei PF01. Love them. Really light and good forged construction. Easy to clean too

    I was considering those too! I love enkeis but I wish they had more aggressive 5x100 fitments available. I want the RS05RR in the worst way possible.
