This is a discussion on Winter Wheel and Tire install (with Pics) within the Exterior & Appearance forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; Just installed a wheel and tire package on my 2013 wrx. They are 215/55R-16 Bridgestone Blizzak tires with black steels ...
Where do you live, look nice.

*HAVE YOU HAD YOUR WRX TODAY!*
That's what I call the old rally car look - put a bra on it and it will be complete - I had them for years when I drove the Audi A4. I want a winter package with inexpensive alloys and I don't want to have to fool with centering rings or weird offset issues - any suggestions would be appreciated. I picked up my ride today '13' base hatch in ice silver and it was spitting snow - so I need the winter tires!
Looks like my sister's Corolla. No offense intended at all. Car is the same color and has steelies.
Posted from a fone.
looks just like mine, except mine's a hatch.

Do you skip the TPMS?
I skipped my TPMS. Personally it wasn't worth it to me and if you aren't checking your tire pressure on a weekly basis in cold weather (especially the Delmarva area where temperatures fluctuate big time) then you really should be. The light doesn't bother me in the slightest and thanks to the fellow clubwrx members, I didn't need centering rings for my steelies. Just made sure they installed while the car was lifted and torqued in a star shape. I'm getting them retorqued in a day or so since I've reached the 100 miles on them. Actually quite a smooth ride (general altimax arctic tires)

I agree on the ride (i know they are different tires) but it is pretty smooth.
Is there a fuse to the TPMS that could be pulled? My '03 doesn't have TPMS (thankfully), but it seems like there's something you ought to be able to do about the indicator...
