    recommended wheel size

    Ok so I ordered me a 2002 wrx sedan from a couple states away should be here ina week or so but I wanna do a stock look to it or well I wanna use it for what its made for I dont plan on lowering it I kinda wanna do it rally spec in the future but what would be a good wheel size for it without having to stretch tires but yet have an aggressive look to it? If that makes any sense.. lol
    Thanks

    ^yep. That's about the best you can do from a performance standpoint.

    If you wanna do rally in the future a generally stock suspension is good. Dirtyimpreza forums have a lot of good info from rally guys on setting up your suspension if you go that direction.

    Rally spec? As in the rally look or actually build it for some hard dirt/ofroad thrashing? Either way 16's are going to fit the bill better for you. If you are really serious, either shave the calipers or grab a set of 4/2 pots and put 15 inch gravel wheels on it.

    Personally I think the stock 16's with some meaty tires on them looks aggressive if you are going for a rally look.

    yeah, I missed the "Rally Spec" part. If you want to go the route of Rally, 15x8s with 4/2 pots.
