    Checked out your profile, sweet build you got going on there. How long/how many miles have you had those mods for? Maybe meet up in person one day to check it out.

    Yeah that is definitely a way to go. Cheap and I don't think they look bad, rocking steelies on the truck. Which brand/where do people get steelies for the wrx at?

    I ordered them through tirerack the 16" will fit fine. Though if you plan to upgrade the calipers you may need 17" for clearance

    Cool deal thanks for the heads up. Looks like the steelies are back order till September which seems like perfect time to start looking for winter set up.

    I ended up ordering my set before i got my car Late Feb I was worried we would get a snowstorm but never did. Was about 600-700 but I know its something Ill need so not a big deal. Since you already have mudflaps all you need now is a roof rack and a bunch of stickers on the wind deflector.

    Nice hatch! I love mine too. Get the tails done looks much better. I had mine done professionally by tint shop with red vinyl they cut with razor blades for $120. Tint guy told me that's the best thing to do so it fits perfectly. You need to get an Acessport $400-$600 and stage 1 e-tune from torqued performance($85) You won't regret it, trust me. I have no idea why I waited until 6k to mod mine it's so much faster now

    Yeah the place i got tints done also does vinyls. I would have gotten them done same day but it was raining and he said not to get the tails done in the rain due to possibility of them peeling off. All this talk has me wanting to go stage 1 so bad
