he he he....no wories. I wouldn't run these wheels on the street as a daily setup. Only for autocross, where us Subie-folk need to get off the WRC-pipe and start using wheels that work for autocross.
Meet the FSP machine:


And the DSP machine:

Hey Storm,

Are the rear wheels going to stick out that much too? You might get that mystery cone penalty.

When I add a spacer in the rear, I end up hitting cones with the rear tire without me knowing it.

Special K, there is usually a "macro" button (looks like a flower symbol) on your camera that adjusts the focus for close up shots. Thatd probably help in understanding what your first three pics are.

^^ Yeah, my monitor lacks the "auto-focus" feature too.....

Tim: The naked wheels are from SpinWerkes (dotcom). They're an offshoot of Circle Racing wheels. These are alloy 2pc wheels. For the 15x10, at 15lbs, the cost is $249/ea. versus a Kodiak, weighing 10lbs at $375+/ea. Steel wheels in this size hover around 22-25lbs each and cost roughly $140/ea.

Gil: Yes, I've had to adjust my driving with wheels sticking out this far. Even the 13's stick out quite a ways....so I'm kinda used to it. If I'm hitting cones with the inside rear wheels, I just go faster in that section on the next run. Works almost every time!

Oh, so that's what that's for, learn something new everyday

I tried with macro, but that isn't the problem. The problem is that there's no gap between the rear fender and the wheel, so I'll need to actually raise the car to get a clear shot. Hopefully I'll shake off this lazyness and do it soon.

Nothing wrong with being lazy.

I knew we already had one of these threads on here and in the same section too.
