    Just got my first WRX!!!!!

    Hello everyone!
    I just got my 2002 WRX about 6 months ago and its completely stock besides a K&N air filter (as far as I know). Its what I was looking for to begin with but now I have some extra cash and wouldn't mind doing a few things to it to make it more "fun" to drive.
    -I was wondering what would be some good options to look at and also, keeping in mind, I live in Montana so I would like to keep it practical for winter driving as well.
    -Is it a good idea to run snow tires during the winter or is it unnecessary?
    -And finally, what are some of your favorite rims out there???

    Let me know! Thanks!!

    Congrats

    Winter tires aren't required. You can make A/S tires work, but winters are ideal.

    I prefer to buy the whole wheel.

    When my car gets here, I'm going to run blizzaks on the stock wheels and buy some aftermarket wheels for the summer tires. Our winters can get ****ty here in MT, and every day is different. So, in my opinion, its best to maximize traction.
