They had almost ten yeas to let drivers practice

We do know how much 19" wheels weigh, and 18s and the differences.

If they add weight the will hurt performance and while I tink the STI deserves Recaros, money spent on them is money that didn't go somewhere else. Personally I'd lie manuals.

Power and/or usable power do not make up for weight gain.

Well know what SOA will do when they have done it and not till then.

Found another close up shot of wheels

It looks like that 18 inch wheels will still fit, now the question how thick are these new brembos?

I see the tires have changed now to Advan Sports! I figured they were sticking with Dunlop.

I only thing I hope, which I am sure is fine, is that 18" wheels will fit.
I have new advan RZ's burning in their boxes to go on this car.

Take this with a grain of salt (as I'm aware Canadian and US models are not exactly the same). I got an email from my dealer with a document corporate sent out here in Canada. The document states, for the STI, "A revised front fascia with an aggressive new look now features a pair of air intakes in the lower grille bezel."

The 2018 will be without doubt the best performing most refined STI to date, and keeping the EJ with its now limitless aftermarket performance parts supply to build upon the improvements to the suspension, driveline and trim refinements make the 2018 a no brainer over the current STI 2015-2017 setup....can't wait to see what they do in 2020!!!!!
