I beg to differ. Those wheels looked SICK on your car Disco.....(disclaimer, my dark gun RZ's are arriving today for my OBP STI) and you know the tires that are in my garage waiting for them!!!!

You did well GunKata, I LOVE those rims on your silver. I came soooo close to buying a silver STI and after seeing your car I would have done the same combo!!

I've been waiting to see how 18x9 +35 would look on stock suspension. It looks surpisingly good, much better when you get the springs.

Thanks, guys. I am really liking the tough and beefy look on the car, and the color scheme is pretty awesome as well. I think the black/chrome STI logo will look nice on the back when I get that on there.

Springs will only slightly lower it. Depending on how the ride quality is affected and low it goes, I would either need to decide on getting some other springs for a more drop, or just leave it with the RCEs to make some compromise on looks vs. performance and comfort.

its louder than I expected - mostly because its resonated inside the cabin due to the wagon design - but looks and outside sound is A++.

lol, heck yeah, install that bad boy!

thanks!

Springs are stiff, but very good. Definitely feel the rear planted more and it even keeps the front more stable I'd say. RCE really did their homework on these and I am happy with their performance. I hope they settle more though.

Everything looks great. How are the stock tires performing on your track days?
