Luke’s Black on Black 2011 STI - 18×10 Flat Black SVN-R

Owner: Luke (Check out his previous feature here.)
Car: 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Limited
Wheels: 18×10 Rota SVN-R - Flat Black (5×100/114.3/E30/73)
Tires: 255/35/18
Suspension: ISC N1 Coilovers

Luke is back for the third time on wheeldude.com. We just can’t get enough of this aggressive STI rocking the 18×10 +30 Flat Black SVN-R’s. It’s great how these wheels do not require a lot of work to fit under the fenders of the newer STI’s.

Joe’s 2011 Impreza on 18×9.5 Chameleon Grids

Owner: Joe
Car: 2011 Subaru Impreza 2.5i Premium Hatch
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota Grid - Chameleon (5×100/e38/73)
Tires: 255/35/18
Suspension: Raceland Coilovers

The Grids in Chameleon finish is just one of our new color releases this year and Joe was one of the first to jump on them. He tells us “I ordered these wheels literally as soon as I saw them.” Looks like Joe instantly fell in love with the color. Pretty much like how we felt as soon as we saw these when they arrived at our shop. Joe also adds, “They are my favorite set I have had on my car and they fit perfectly.” Nothing beats the feeling when you see a customer satisfied with your product. Thanks Joe!


Luke’s Dark Knight STI on 18×10 Flat Black Rota SVN-R’s

Owner: Luke
Car: 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Limited
Wheels: 18×10 Rota SVN - Flat Black (5×100/114.3/E30/73)
Tires: 255/35/18
Suspension: ISC N1 Coilovers

Wow we’re really digging the new stance on Luke’s STI!  That mild tire stretch gives you the extra clearance from the fenders but is still enough to be considered a meaty set up. Just a little fender roll and you’re all set. Luke calls his STI the “Dark Knight” and we can clearly see why. Now on to the pictures.

Darren’s 2011 WRX on 18×8.5 Gold Grids

Owner: Darren
Car: 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: 18×8.5 Rota Grid - Gold (5×100/e44/73)
Tires: 235/40/18 Bridgestone Potenza RE-11
Suspension: Stock

Darren sent over some pictures of his 2011 WRX on 18×8.5 Grids in Gold. He is currently running stock suspension but it definitely doesn’t look bad! This is a conservative set up for this car and does not require any fender mods to fit.

Marcel’s 2011 STI on 18×9 Hyper Black G-Forces

Owner: Marcel
Car: 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Wheels: 18×9 Rota G-Force - Hyper Black (5×114.3/E30/73)
Tires: 245/40/18
Suspension: Coilovers

Our customer all the way from Switzerland sent us pictures of his car right after mounting the new wheels. As much as we’re big fans of the old body style STI’s, these new ones are quickly growing on us. Just take a look at this 2011 STI running 18×9 Hyper Black G-Forces. We want one!

Brendan’s 2011 WRX Sedan on 18×9.5 +22 DPT’s

Owner: Brendan
Car: 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - Hyper Black (5×100x114.3/e22/73)
Tires: 225/40/18
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.

Tires: 265/35/18
Suspension: BC BR Coilovers, Whiteline Swaybars, Kartboy endlinks, Rear camber plates

We recently came across pictures of John’s car while doing our regular forum browsing. We still can’t figure out which one caught our eye, the dramatic HDR photos or the flashy wheels on John’s car. Whatever it is, we definitely enjoyed looking at them! Here’s what John has to say about his new set up, “Love the wheels! Car drives and handles amazing.”

Chris’ 2011 STI on 18×9.5 +38 Gold Rota Grids

Tires: 255/40/18 Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport
Suspension: BC BR Racing Coilovers
Other: 5mm spacers to clear Brembos. Rolled and pulled rear fenders, rolled front fenders.

Chris’ STI is looking really good with the 18×9.5 Gold Rota Grids. 5mm spacers were installed for the fronts to clear the Brembos. Chris also chose the meaty tire path, with those wide 255/40/18 Bridgestone Potenzas.

Jarzar06’s 2011 WRX on 18×9.5 +38 Flat Gunmetallic Rota Grids

Owner: Jarzar06(Nasioc member)

Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota Grid - Flat Gunmetallic (5×100/e38/56.1hb)
Tires: 245/40/18

The 18×9.5 Rota Grids fit this particular body style nicely! The concave on the wheels definitely compliment the wide body. 2011 WRX owners should take notes. :)
