    Hi there, I am new!

    Actually I am not new to Subies, I have been driving my 2002 WRX for several years, but just purchased a 2013 yesterday. I pick it up this afternoon, and I couldn't even sleep last night! I am keeping my 2002, which my husband wants to drive I'm very glad to keep her in the family. Since I live in Michigan, and my new WRX has street tires, I think one of the first things I will start shopping for are winter wheels and tires. I have a few months to worry about that (I hope). Glad I found this group, and I hope to learn tons from everyone here.

    Welcome, good color choice! Now is the time to shop for winter tires and wheels, people will be getting rid of them cheap. Check the For Sale section, I've seen a couple sets in there recently.

    HaHaha, yea I know the bugeyes are endearing. At the moment, its in for some body work (rear fenders), where apparently they all rust. Good little beast, and will be with us for many years.

    Thanks! I really planned on ordering a new one toward the end of the summer to get the dark Plasma Blue, but happened to see this Dark Grey Metallic and it caught my eye. With the tinting and rim color, I think its pretty all right. At this very second I am waiting for a call from the dealership telling me its ready. It was missing a front bumper vent, and apparently they come primed but not painted from Subaru. Crossing my fingers they get it done and I can drive it home today!
    And thank you for the tip on purchasing rims and tires.... I will be checking that thread out.

    I literally just sold my basically brand new altimax (205-50-17) for 200. If you were to keep a 17 inch wheel for winter and just tossed a set of 16 inch blizzards that may have had a season left.
    See if you can pick a set if the altimax up when you look. They will be dirt cheap now, and they're imo the best snow tire
