Car: 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: 18×10 Rota SVN - Flat Black (5×100/114.3/E30/73)
Suspension: BC BR Coilovers
We can still remember the days when a wheel that had an offset lower than +48 was called aggressive. Fast forward to 2009, people would run 18×9.5 +38 wheels on their cars with just a few fender modifications. Nowadays, we notice a lot of customers purchase the SVN-R’s in 18×10 +30 to be put on their Imprezas. It goes to show that wheel fitment is a thing that is constantly evolving. It’s the people like Chan who push the boundaries of wheel fitment. It’s people like him that always keep the game “fresh”.

Car: 2006 Subaru Impreza STi
Wheels: Linea Corse Lemans in Hyper Silver with Polished Lip
Daniel was the first one to rock the Linea Corse Lemans on a Subaru. The stance and fitment of this car is just perfect and which is one of the reasons why the Lemans has been so successful in the Subaru community. Check out the bonus video on the bottom too!

Ernesto went with a stretched tire setup on his car so he could slam his car and still fit those aggressive wheels under the STI’s fenders. It’s safe to say that the Lemans is up there when it comes to the best looking wheels on a GD Subaru.

Michael was one of the first TC owners to run the 18×9.5 Linea Corse Lemans. Two years later, the set-up still looks so good! This wheel will never go out of style.
Car: 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - Hyper Black (5×100x114.3/e22/73)
Suspension: BC BR Extreme Low Kit
The moment we saw this car posted on the forums, our jaws dropped in awe. It’s not everyday that you see a new car rocking some really aggressive wheels. Props to Brendan for taking it to another level by making the 18×9.5 +22 DPT’s fit on his car.
For those of you wondering, the front and rear fenders on this car are rolled to make way for the low offset wheels. The fender work was done by Son Vo. Hit him up for great fender work!
Brendan tells us that he is happy with the way the car sits now but it’s not the set up he is looking for. This car will be back with some meaty tires. Definitely watch out for that!
We can’t wait to see more of these new body Imprezas. They definitely have great potential in the “looks” department.
Thanks to Brendan Bannister Photography for the nice pictures.
