    I definitely have ruled out the ASA's for these, the weight id save would make me the money back over time mpg wise.. and they do look much sharper. Any other suggestions? and am i correct that i read the stock 12' wrx wheels are about 22 lbs?

    Yeah the stockers are relatively heavy.

    I'd suggest what I like, but what I like may not be what you like. My favorite wheels are Enkei NT03 +Ms

    Your going to have to roll the rear fenders for sure if you go any lower than stock height. I have eibach springs (which are .8in. drop) and I had to roll. With a 18x9.5 265/35 45et

    Their wheels are cheap and heavy. Their thing is that they sell wheels in 8.75 and other weird widths, which IMO, is just stupid. Pretty sure they do it so you can get extra "stretch" for all the stancetards.

    I'd personally stay away from XXR wheels as there are many other better kinds out there.

    +38 is perfect flush. +33 is def gonna poke. I'm running 255/35 on a 18x9.5+38 wheel it fits perfect but had to roll the crap out of the rears and mildly in the front to really drive the car hard with no rubbing. If you're lowering i wouldn't go with that fitment. Just my opinion.

    Those are the same wheels/tire size I'm running trust me they will fit great. Def gonna have to roll the rears. I'll be rolling the fronts a bit too. There's no camber adjustment from factory but it was still within spec, used the cam bolts in front. The springs are good but you really feel how soft the sock dampers are, that will be my next upgrade no doubt.

    Yeah I'm a mechanic full time and hunter certified in alignments I haven't looked into rear adjustments on these but I've done plenty of front camber adjustments I just hope the 1 inch drop will look as good as the coilover set up
