    i dunno.. depends on you.. i'll try to describe them to you first and then you decide

    rims: no curbs from what i can see.. normal daily wear.. i'm pretty sure all wrxs have this, those very tiny black dots that keep sticking to the stock rim.. you can paint them if you want.. whatever

    tires: falken ziex 512s, i only drove them for a couple hundred miles before getting new rims and tires.. so i don't need these now.. they even still have those color dots they put on tires.. they still have the hair too.. and they're already balanced

    so there you are.. if you're serious i'll bring 'em

    i have 2 catch cans installed. one for the crank and one from the valvecover. im not getting that much blow by. and when i checked the inlet pipe there wasnt that much oil in there. but the pipe right after the turbo was heavily coated with oil. im going to check my compression to see if in fact i am getting a lot of blowby and im just not seeing it in the intake. im starting to not like my car anymore...

    I'm more referring to oil catch can for intake. from what i am beginning to understand from research there is some blow by through turbo that does leave oil deposits in the intake after the turbo and in the intercooler. that is why alot of people with turbo cars install oil catch cans. there are a few threads on here that refer to this. being fairly new to the turbo world, I have been reading as much as i can to understand more. if you had blow by through the cylinders though, you would have smoke coming from your exhaust.

    JB, did you find your springs? Are you going to have them by the 5th for the install? By the way everyone, I'm bringing my air compressor, so let's bang out as many installs as possible!
