    Thanks

    I'll probably get on Nasty Sock, and see if anyone has done the 18x8 rpf1's on a WRX with stock struts.

    This may not be applicable to the high-dollar summer tires, but I am extremely impressed by my $91 Yokohama S.drives.

    Please ignore the horrible stock rim paint job that Discount Tire destroyed + the sloppy mess they left on:




    Granted, I just made the switch on stock rims and came off my Hankook Winter Pikes, but still.

    S.drives were ranked pretty high on the lower end price range on Tirerack, so I went with 'em.

    That said, the only thing I would probably switch from the S.drives to is the RE-11s, like Sinister. That's only if I can get some 17x8 wheels sometime this year.

    S.drives look hot to me, but they're the first set of real summer performance tires I've ever had.
