    Wheels : Rota G-Force 18x9 5x100 +35 in Gold
    Tires : Falken FK452 225/40/18


    i was wondering if these would fit an 04 wrx (not the STi, i kno they fit the STi) the +35 offset might be too much or the 9'' might be too wide but idk... anyone have an idea?

    I would think a 255 on 9" rims and a fender roll would be needed.... but then again, I could be wrong. :P

    do you guys think 18"s are too big for the 08' rex?

    im trying to find a set of 18"s, black, kind of like the stocks except smaller spokes... and under 650 for the set, anyone know of anything? tinting the windows 20% so i figure black rims will match up

    Should be a good fit for you, just find a good offset.

    For me, personal preference is 18". From what I've heard, 17"s produce the best performance, but I've never understood why. As long as your 18" isn't heavier and is fit properly, I would think any difference (more RPMs for a smaller diameter) is negligible.

    Also, your spoke design and lip for the wheel can possibly make the wheel look bigger or smaller than it really is.

    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking for a picture of a GD STi with the GR STi OEM BBS wheels. Could someone post one up? I'm pretty sure that is a possible combination, but I could be wrong.

    Thanks!
