    Yep, and they don't clear STI Brembos either. We had a customer a few weeks ago with these wheels on his 08 STI and he has to run a 5mm spacer in order to clear the brakes, due to how the spokes get fatter toward the hub (which btw is a big difference between these and the TE37s that they knock off).

    The only bad thing is that the TE37's come in black with the red lip or i would have bought a set of those.

    Huh? The black/red lip is the "Time Attack" wheel combo that was only available for like a year. The TE37s come standard in Bronze and White, and can be special ordered in Gunmetal, Gold, Flat Black, Diamond Black, Gloss Black, Takata Green, Orange, Red, Mercury Silver, Titanium Silver, Mag Blue, and probably a few colors that I'm forgetting. I myself even had a limited edition set of TE37s that was Gunmetal with a Polished Lip (called the "LE37T"...here's a pic from back in the day:



    Sounds like you should've done a little more research.

    Yes you are right I should have looked more, and the look you have there isnt relly the same as what I was looking for: wanted more of the concave look. But very sweet car. I do have a question are those JDM projection headlights?

    Yes, they're the JDM projectors...hard to find these days for a good price. When I first got them back in the day, I was able to get them with an aftermarket HID kit for about $800...now you can't even get the lights alone for less than about $1200

    i guess i wouldn't have gone with that size at all.

    18=lower performance and more weight,
    9.5"= way too wide (for my liking),
    +38= useless and requires fender rolling.

    and personally i dont care for the color, but thats also preference. idk man whatever floats your boat.
