New guy here

Hey all. I'm Drew, and I suppose I'm the new kid at the lunch table.

I live in Indianapolis, and I'm the proud owner of an 04 WRB WRX sedan. I've had her for about 2 years now, and the car still puts a huge smile on my face every time I drive it.

Purchased it completely stock from a dealership in the Northern Chicago area, and it didn't stay that way for long..

Anyways, on to pics as I'm too lazy to put a mod list. Looking forward to being a part of this community. Seems to be a great forum.

Everyone always asks my wheel/tire specs, so I'll list those right away; 17x9 +30 Rota Grids wrapped in 245/45 RE760's






A couple of recent iPwn pics in the snow

+30 is way aggressive, but you already know that and it's your choice.
Snow pics are defiantly cool man, welcome to WRXTuners!!

Oh yes haha. I actually didn't even want wheels that aggressive when I was shopping for a new set last summer. I wanted 17x9 +42's, but a buddy of mine decided to get rid of these, and I couldn't pass up the deal. Believe it or not, they fit without a single issue once I got a fender roll and a wee bit more negative camber.

Thanks for the welcome! Love your blaze yellow bugeye. I've really had a strong urge lately to trade my car for a sonic yellow one.

Nice car. One thing... Didn't your momma tell you to go tall and skinny for tires in the snow? j/k Nice ride.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

Yeah, about that.. I made the huge mistake of selling my winter setup over the summer. In the process of buying a new winter/RallyX setup. Oh hai white steelies!

A buddy of mine runs 245/45's on his STi, and we noticed the same thing. RE760's must run a bit tall. I know when I ran Star Specs on my old summer setup, they always seemed to run wide.

Heh, actually I take that back... mine are 245/40's, not 245/45's. My apologies, I wasn't paying attention. They are Star Specs though.

I'll look into that. I'm in the market for a new hatch, but I'd love to grab a sonic bugeye. Perhaps I'll try to convince the gf to buy it for her daily.

Nice choice. I've decided to go back to Star Specs this summer, and drop to a 245/40. I'd like to go lower, and these tires are hindering that.
