Tyres and alloys

Hello
It's my first time in this forum so plese be gentle with me!
I have subaru impreza wrx sti type uk on a 53 plate and I am after a new set of alloys and tyres, as I REALLY hate the gold standard ones.
Do I want 17 or 18" with what size tyres? What about the offset and Brembo brakes?Any suggestions?

I would go 225/45/18.

What colour wheel did you want?

Use a Subaru specialist like Scoobyworld (I did)


Oh and welcome to the site

Preferably a dark silver/ anthracite as the car is black.

I have anthracite

You will need to make sure they will fit over the Brembo's as some wheels won't

These are mine from Scoobyworld (anthracite ones comp with Toyo Tyres)

Hi mrs houdielbow, Welcome to the site :wink:

Hate the gold wheels :shock: , well yes there is a love/hate thing with them :roll: personally love em myself :wink:

OZ superlegrras I beleive will fit, but please check it out, 18's are what they say for handling, but 17's will do fine ( and the replcament tyres will be lots cheaper) :wink:
