Well I got pics of that thing up in the FS section, so I'd rather not get unwanted attention for advertising outside of allowed areas. Had a bad experience with that on another board

Well I just got a set of Falken FK452s put on the car.
I decided to go with 235/40/ZR17 on my WRX to help out the gearing just a tad and increase maximum cornering grip.




I only have about 150miles on them (replaced Toyo T1S), but I noticed improved maximum grip, slightly more squishy initial turn-in (expected from brand new tires), but amazing grip under heavy/ full braking application. They REALLY grip to slow the car down!

Overall, I like them, and for $444.00 shipped, they are pretty damn good.

Oh yea, I just got a new alignment also, running -1 Camber front, -1.5 camber rear, 0 toe all around. 2.8 caster is fixed.

Well, I finally got these things properly broken in with about 800 miles on them. They got MUCH better compared to brand new. They have really nice lateral grip, pretty good turn in response, and dont squeal like piggies anymore.
I autoX'd them just once at around 500miles old and they could have been better, but Ill attribute that to the tall new treads, and I probably didnt have optimal inflation b/c I found out my pressure gauge was inaccurate when I got back home.

I am doing the same swap on my 02 wrx with 05 drivetrain. Did you do the work yourself or have a shop do it for you?

Its not complete. The trans is sitting in my garage still, but I'll be doing it all at home with several knowledgeable people staffed and fed to help me.
