    Very cool. ... I'm glad you didn't put the STi logo in there. I would liken that to owning a civic w/out vtec and putting a big ol Vtec sticker on your windshield.

    temp tag on the rear, plates on shortly (sadly- I would prefer no front plate, but not to be in Montana as well )

    I've got some spiffy black WRX plate brackets that should look pretty good though

    Yeah I lasted all of about 15 minutes in Miles City with no front plate before getting pulled over

    Car looks great. Makes me want one.

    thanks Rick, looking forward to seeing your new 2.5 in action

    found a set of slightly used Hoosier A6's- 245/40/17



    they are mucho wide (10" section width)



    they are mucho stiff as well, I have a lot of experience w/ stiff sidewalled street tires- these are stiffer than any street tire I've ever used

    they are light too- 19.5 lbs!

    mounted to the BBS mesh I'm looking at a weight of 34.7 lbs, oe weight (tire/wheel) is 47.1- ~ 12.5 lbs unsprung savings/corner

    Bigsky, Pic of them on the Suby please! Here's hoping they don't stick out of the fenders too far and look all sorts of stupid. I measured my RE070's and they're about 9 1/8" wide (I think).
    I can't believe they're that light and simultaneously that stiff.

    definitely will have pics this spring

    yeah not sure how they get that kind of stiffness w/ no apparent weight penalty

    they should be fun as the tire is literally gummy (as evidenced by all the small debris stuck to it)

    the 08/09 appears it will handle wider tires w/ more ease than the 02-07's

    there are a couple of folks contemplating 275's for D Stock- evidently lots of folks in other cars squeezing these on 7" (and even 6.5"!!) rims

    I'm giving some thought to a 275/40/17 front and a 245/45/17 rear- they only differ by a couple of hundredths in height (well within the .25 circumference that Subaru recommends)- Kumho makes the 710 in both these sizes- we'll see

    The Hoosiers a light because they don't have heavy steel belts and they have a thin carcass in the tread area. They don't have much puncture resistance and aren't recommended for street use. Plus, if you use them on the street you'll put on more heat cycles and they'll get hard sooner. I used to drive to local events, about 30 miles away, on Hoosiers if there was no chance of rain.

    It does usually work pretty well to squeeze wide R-compound tires onto the narrow stock rims for stock class autox. I ran 225s on 6" rims on my Miatas. They looked ridiculous but worked great. I've also seen 285s on 8" rims. On my D-stock BMW 330i I could easily squeeze 275s or 285s on the 18x8f/18x8.5r rims, but there isn't enough rear fender clearance so I run 245/30-18. I chose Kumho V710s because the car can't get much front camber and Hoosiers tend to cord on the shoulders on camber-challenged cars.

    I know some BMW drivers tried 275s front (they fit on the front) and 245s rear, but generally preferred the 245s all the way around.

    The 245/40-17s you got look like the perfect size for a 17x7 rim. That's probably what I'd go with until someone proves that 275s fit and work better.
