Reid’s OBS, “The Sube” on 18×9.5 +38 Grids

Owner: Reid NASIOC: reide181
Car: 2010 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport
Wheel: 18×9.5 Rota Grid - Hyper Black (5×100/e38/73)
Tires: Nexen N3000 235/40/18
Suspension: BC Racing BR Series
Additional Mods: Rallitek Sway Bars (21mm/19mm), Rallitek HD endlinks, Cusco Strut tower braces. Other mods include most of the typical Subaru stuff (Hellas, Red Tail Lights, Independent Yellow Fogs) and tasteful mods like shark fin antenna to get rid of the RC car look, WC Lathe Werks Custom Gunmetal Stainless Steel Shift Knob to match the gunmetal interior trim, STi LED Turn Signal Mirrors, LED Switchback front turn signals, a full LED exterior and interior conversion, 5000K HID Low beams, DRLs Disabled, a Full Rockford Fosgate Sound system, and a WRX exhaust for a little throaty sound without making the neighbors hate him.

Reid sure wanted to be different. He took a rugged Outback Sport and turning it into a clean, curve hugger was his goal. he reported back to us saying that the 9.5″ wheel width wrapped in 235s was a tough fit on the non-wide body Impreza. With a proper fender roll, pull and the perfect offset, Reid can say he’s one of less then a handful with these sizes on an N/A Impreza. She turns heads while still remaining under the radar. He loves his DD and couldn’t be happier!

Always puts a smile on our faces when we read at the end of the article he had the following to say about us, “I had a great experience with wheeldude.com! Shipping was extremely fast to PA, and the wheel/tire package came ready to install. Great prices with everything I needed (lugs, locks, hub rings, center caps) all in one place. Thanks guys!”

Full Royal Silver is one of the newest colors offered for the 18″ Rota Grid. 5×100 owners, click here or 5×114.3 owners looking for the 18×9.5 +20 version, we have those too here.

This is one of the last sets Alan is placing on his car as he’s preparing to leave for college at UC Santa Cruz. We wish him the best of luck! Just like before, he only has rolled rear fenders and coilovers as his only mods. The 18×9.5 +38 is a conservative setup for the 08+ guys. The tire size he chose to go with is the 255/35/18 from Nexen.
