This STI owner was looking for a more aggressive set of wheels without having to worry about rubbing on the fenders. He wanted to stick with a gold design to go with his blue Subaru so we found him the RTX R-Spec Stag wheels which come in a light gold colour. Size-wise, we went with a 18x8.5 +35, which is the same width as stock but with a lower offset giving the car an aggressive stance.
With the 245/40-18 Continental tires, there's no rubbing issues whatsoever and no need to roll or pull the fenders. We did however have to run spline drive lug nuts to clear the tight lug holes on these wheels. These wheels are also a dual bolt pattern (5x100 and 5x114.3), so it'd be a fairly easy wheel to sell second hand as it fits so many different vehicles. We also upgraded the interior lights to white LED units and added a third brake light on the rear diffuser. The third brake light is wired to turn on with the low beams and flash under braking.
