    It's fun... try it

    It'll be close (when fully loaded or hard turns is when you'll find out)- worse case scenario- roll the rear fenders- it's easy to do

    I didn't know mine was rubbing till I had four adults and 200 lbs of track gear in the hatch, when I'd go up a little bit of a driveway- ziiiiip, ziiiiip from the rear. Rolling the fenders fixed that

    neat what you did w/ the gauges you need an omori yellow needle 45mm boost gauge to go into the oe pod.

    For $220 it's tough to beat the oe painted skirts- paint match is perfect and if you hang on to your oe ones you can sell them down the road

    ya im going to look at purchasing the center gauge cluster and put the 3 gauges there and get rid of the oem boost gauge, it gets in the way of my rpm gauge. Whats the best place to buy the sideskirts from?

    Hey stranger....nice wagon


    I'm running the stock rims (17 x 7) 235/45 R17 BFG sports. Right now i'm on 04 STi suspension, so it's almost stock height. No rubbing yet. But in a few months, i'll have some new stuff going in

    try Jamie at subarugenuineparts.com- I think she has them on sale

    always try your local dealer too- sometimes they are willing to match internet prices

    Yup, I got them, running 235/40 r-comps, looks kinda funny w/ the lo-profile because my not-so-much-lowering wagon pink springs but they're my track wheels, no rubbing whatsoever, no fender rolling but....-2.5F/-1.6R cambers.
