Hey Guys

Hows it going? Im new to this forum.

Just picked up my first suby, 2011 WRX limited (cdn) WRB Sedan! :tongue:

What do you guys think of these wheels in gunmetal? Will these fit my car?
Enkei High Quality Wheels : Performance Series : EKM3

5x100
7.5" width
+45 offset

Will these look flush? Do you think they will look good with the blue?

What tires are recommended and springs?

Any advice would be great!

id honestly go against downsizing the wheel man, yes its a nice wheel, but your stock rims are 17x8, no point in going to a 7.5" wheel. the max size you can fit on there safely and easily is like a 18x9.5 ... heres a link/guide to fitting wheels to our 11 rex's

If you do a quick google search you will find some wrx/sti's with those wheels. I've looked into them but if your going to spend the money on new wheels and tire's I would at least step up to the stock size of the sti wheel (18x8.5) so you can run a 245 tire.

I'm looking into buying some Rota wheels myself. Just undecided what I want to use for a winter/summer set up yet.

yeah so i've been told but i really like these wheels :(

What is the downfall of running a 7.5" anyways? Performance loss? traction loss? would it even be noticeable?

The Rota wheels are really nice too, which one's are you looking at?

Have you checked out the RPF1 or PF01 from Enkei? You can stay at 17x8 and keep your tires. That's what I did anyway.
