Hey guys, I am new to the site so hopefully I am posting this question in the right place.
I bought a 2010 wrx a few months ago, and I just ordered some new wheels for it (57DRs). I am really excited about the wheels but my issue is that I think my brakes are going to look terrible now that I have nice wheels. I loved the brakes on the 06/07 wrx because they were powder coated and just looked way better. I don't want to powder coat my current ones, as based on the research I've done it can cause issues and they need to be completely taken apart. So my idea now is that maybe I could just buy a set of 06/07 callipers from the dealer (or used) and install those. However, I am wondering if anyone else has done this and how easy/difficult it would be? Will they fit just the same on stock rotors? The 06/07's had slightly larger rear rotors than the 2008+ wrx models so I wasn't sure if I'd need to buy larger rear rotors…
I considered an STi brake upgrade, but I have to put the stock wheels back on for the winter and I know they won't clear those… so that option is out.
Thoughts or suggestions??
