Dude, sucks about your engine. This is not that rare, particularly from guys running thin oil. EJ's like thicker oil than Subaru deems worthy.

I advise against XXR's because they're a junky cast (they break/leak/crack) and that's not enough offset for a subaru. 2011 WRX can handle 18x8.5 +48 very well. I'd use a 255/35R18 tire on it. I'm...
