well im about to order some wheels and springs for my black '03 wrx sedan within the next 2 weeks and have already chosen the wheels i want but am unsure of the size to get. i am looking into the gram light 57f's and i plan on throwing a set of 225/45 tires on them. i want the tires to look as wide as possible without exceeding out past the wheel gap. my question is should i go with 17 x 7.5 or 17 x 8.5? also im unsure of which springs to get, coil overs are a bit too expensive at the moment and i doubt i will ever need to adjust the ride height. i was looking at the tein s. tech springs but i have heard good and bad things about them, and im unsure about the 2" drop in the front, i think that might be a little too low for clearence of speed bumps and this nasty bump in front of my driveway. anyway tell me what you guys think.

Here are trhe wheels

Go with the 7.5" wide wheels. The 8.5" is a little too much. For springs I would reccomend Eibach. If you want a little more of a drop than that go with Perrin.

Eibach = 1.3 frt. 1.0 rear

cool thanks for the reply, so you think the 225/45's wont be too wide for the 7.5's? as for springs i think im gonna go with the eibach's, they seem to have a respectable drop. thanks again.

I just orderd a set of FLIK Wasps in 18'x7.5 on 40 series rubber and Prodrive springs. It will all go on within the next 2-3 weeks so I am hoping it'll look sweet.....

...I also have an OEM rear lip, carbon fiber side markers, and a silverstar blinker conversion gettin' put on too! It's a complete exterior transformation from stock!:D

Now i just need to find the right deal on a Prodrive front lip.

Any idea where to find one?
