    New STi owner to be

    I am waiting to take delivery of my 2013 STi. Anybody have a good lead on what size steelies and a supplier to put under it for a dedicated set of winter rims. Also, what would be the best mods to do first to start boosting performance?

    Thanks
    Patrick

    A lot of people go through Tirerack for their winter packages. Not sure what size steelies you would need to clear the STI brakes however...

    See the link in my sig for a good place to start reading about how to modify these cars.

    Congrats!

    Modify to fix where you feel the car is lacking. Give us something to work with and we can better guide you...

    as far as steelies go, I don't know of any that will clear STi brakes.

    You may be better suited to try to find a used set of wheels/tires to use for winter.

    The STI has a different bolt pattern 5x114. I believe CRV steel wheels will work for the STI
