    You should swap the tires off the XXRs and put em on the BBSs.

    I would swap them but the tire size won't match I think.

    The first thing I would invest in is a cobb access port. The 07 has a tune that is rather lean leading to detonation. Not trying to scare you just trying to help you prolong the life of your new baby

    I too am a proud owner of an 07 sti

    Yea I heard about the lean tune in the 07s. So I'm gonna baby it until I can afford an access port. I traded my stage 2 wrx for it and money is a little tight right now so I can't afford it right now. So until then I've been and will continue to shift at 2700 rpms. Just to maximize longevity and gas mileage. Plus when I do decide to get the a.p. I'm gonna just buy the Cobb stage 2 package and be done with it. But until then I'll just be very very careful even though it's stock and perfect you never know how much damage the previous owner did ya know.

    Those would fit on your stock wheels. The stock BBS are so awesome, but I could understand if you didn't want to pay to get them switched over. To be honest, I would probably just sell the XXR's with the a/s tires on them and then use the money to get a good set of summers for your stock BBS (Michelin Pilot Super Sports are the shiz)...I'm assuming in texas you don't see cold/snowy weather? Just a thought

    When you do go stage 2 you should contact the vendors on here (fast tuning products is a good one), as they will give you a better deal than you could typically find online elsewhere. COBB is a good company, but there are others out there worth looking into. Try and go to some meets and hear various exhausts.
