    I know it's not a 2011/2012, but these are exactly what I want in wheel, tire, and size.

    Good call. Same style as the te37, but probably much more common (and likely) due to the price!

    Would that be reason to avoid that brand?

    Not necessarily. What are you doing with the car? Just dd'ing? If so, then you don't necessarily need a forged wheel if you are just going for a better look.

    Yea pretty much just daily driving. But if the cost and weight wasn't too much more then it wouldn't hurt my feelings to have a better wheel.

    I'd say just shop around prices. You would be surprised the deals you can find sometime. I got a really nice price on my Enkei's, and those are (in my opinion) one of the better wheels in that price range. They are not forged, but pretty much as good as it gets for cast wheels. It is important that you like the look, and have something that is not complete garbage, so I would say look around.

    I think it would depend on the wheel I have heard great things about the rota titan but I have also heard horrible things about their other wheels. Look at enkei, BBS, OZ, some work wheels they are priced reasonably and are better quality. If they fit ur budget then You would be much better off. What year is your car ?

    I thought the miro 111 was a replica of the Breyton Race GTS? I don't think they make original design wheels I could be wrong

    I am planning on getting Enkei - RS05RR - 18x9.5 / 5x114.3 / +35 (Face M) and running g-Force Sport COMP-2 265/40ZR18. Stock height; maybe lowering about an inch at a later date. I know I will have to roll the rear. Other then that will these clear?

    If you have an 08+ STi, or a 2015 WRX then yes (2015 WRX because of the bolt pattern, and 08+ STi because prior to the GR I wouldn't recommend running an 18inch wheel on the STi).

    I would go with a 265 on a 9.5 inch wheel, but you might run into some rubbing. I run 245's on my stock winter wheels, which are 18x8.5's and the stretch is very minimal. So it would not be extreme stretch (I've seen way worse). I would rather roll the fenders and have a proper fitting tire though personally. I wouldn't recommend running less than a 255 on a 9.5 inch tire (I run 255's on my 9 inch tire), and as already mentioned, rather run a 265 on the 9.5.

    I have a 2011 STI. Sorry I should have clarified that. Thanks for the info.
