I plan on running a wide wheel (8.5-9) with a narrow tire and a nice camber with megan coilovers.

***this wouldn't be my daily driven set up*** its for show and track.

ps, this is the current setup

looks like crap in my opinion. why would you run a wide rim then put a small tire on it? that seems to be defeating the purpose of the wide wheel?

i say no, because running that low, everyone will know youre doing it just to be low, and youre car wont handle worth a damn anymore. have you measured inside the wheel wells at all? sure, stretching a small tire over a 9.5 inch wheel will give you more clearance, but what if you cant even fit a 9.5 wheel in the wheel well?

You cant go that low.

And it also looks completely retarded. The wheel section is fine, but that just looks like some fat chick is in your trunk.

Yeah that's not low enough imo. If you can still see some rubber at the top of the wheel, then you are a loser.

this wont be my daily set up. and im not 100% sure if thats the wheels im going with. If i could find some grenades or something that would fit right I might go that way.

IMO it defeats the purpose of having a Subaru (rally history) and I don't disagree with variance or creativity but find a vehicle "more" suited.

news flash!

your subaru impreza is not a 240. going that low will only fuck up your suspension geometry.

besides, drifters dont know shit about auto-x and road race setup.
