Just fitted Red stuff to my STi :shock: Fcuk me they are good!
Fitted the whole set (from Rich at RBperformance) at less than the price of a set of oem fronts :wink:

Whilst at it change the hoses to braided ones and Dot 5.1 fluid :wink:

Hi
I recommend the red stuff pads and on OEM discs. Can't help you much with the tyres.
But you can get 17inch Marshals fitted for £65 each.
