    Im looking for some 18x8 or 18x8,5 but looks like i wont have a huge choice because of the bolt pattern, i saw the OZ on tirerack, but not the one i wanted (on the official OZ website) Can tirerack do special order you think?

    And ill put some good tire on it not sure yet what brand ill buy. But like i said, i have some months to shop and search the internet.

    Last thing, i have a plasma blue wrx, do you think gold would look nice. I was thinking to get some silver or maybe chrome but gold could maybe be nice on my car, just havent saw enough pics of that mix.
    gold looks great with plasma blue

    sits really well on those springs!

    I have -XXR 527 18x8.75 +35 w/ 245/40/18 tires

    I gave my rear fenders a mild roll. I have a feeling I'll be needing to roll them all the way up after I put the Eibachs on

    yea a +35 offset will stick out just a bit more, def gonna have to do a good roll in the back. Just don't try and do it with a baseball bat or some dumb **** lol

    U get any rubbing in front? I've noticed some rubbing on the right front with my setup. Def need stiffer dampers for the eibach springs.

    not that I have noticed yet...is your alignment correct? Could be a camber issue

    Yea alignment is all to factory specs. I noticed the rub after driving some very not flat country roads lol. Just gonna roll the fronts a little. To be honest though the springs are good but are just a band aid for the crappy marshmallow factory dampers. Koni inserts will be my next mod.

    Factory spec sucks. Try and dial in a little bit of negative camber. -1 to -1.5 degrees in the front would be nice for handling (negative rear camber is difficult to gain in 3rd gens without camber bushings) . And don't worry, it won't make you look like a silly herrafrusher stancetard
