Wheel Size and Offset Help

If you folks could be so kind as to post pics of your STis and WRXs with aftermarket wheels. I'm trying to get a better idea of what kind of rims to get for my WRX.

Please note this point if you want to mimic man show's setup to anybody with an 02-07.

The 2010 has bigger fender wells and a taller stock tire than the 02-07 WRX. You should be looking at 235/45R17 tires. Stock offset is +55, try to stay around there.

Thanks for the reply. Looks great by the way. To all the others, I've been looking at SSRs, Work or something to that effect. And why won't I get far on here? I'm simply seeking out help.
