Bit of advice please

Firts time on the site so hello everyone- I have a 2001 bug eye WRX and have a few questions

1) I have just got some 18" alloys - I was running 33 front and 32 rear on my old 17" s - will the pressures be the same on the 18" s?

2) I am going to carry out a mid service oil change- any advice on what brand of oil to use ?

3) Has any one used Prosport in Stockport for servicing etc ?

1. Is a bit of personal choice. I run 32 Front 30 Rear
2. Use a fully synt oil. Search for Oilman posts. Remember when doing this oil change to fill the new filter with oil before fitting. This speeds up oil circulation and pressure when first starting after the change.
3. Not tried them so can not comment
All the best

I agree with Peter, 32 on the front and 30 on the back.
