hey all. im a marine currently in iraq. i've got my mind made up on a 04/05 WRX (non-Sti because of insurence reasons). ive worked it out w/ the dealership to get wheels/tires, stereo and put on before i get the car, so i have to know what the best size wheel/tire combo will be. I wont be able to throw more money into the suspension to lower it for a while, so whats the best SIZE wheel/tire and what is the most recomended all around (sunny florida and california weather) tire? i want it to look good.

Are you just gonna be driving it on the roads or do you plan on racing it rim size matters with drag racing but rim weight matters with almost everything.?

I have 18's on mine right now

Wheel / Tire FAQ

I highly suggest 225 tire width as the max... 17 or 18" rims work fine as do 7.5 or 8" wide. Just make sure they have the right offset. Lots more information in the faq

2015 STi: Still Stock
04 STi, 04 WRX: SOLD
