Tires: 255/35/18 Bridgestone RE01 RFT
Suspension: Helix DNA Coilovers

Time to bring back one of the best and most aggressive looking Bugeye’s out there. If you are on NASIOC quite often, con10der8 would be a familiar name to you. He’s pretty active on a lot of threads especially the Bugeye thread which he considers his home.

con10der8’s Bugeye is rocking the 18×9.5 +22 DPT’s in Flat Black. He chose to go with 255/35/18 to maintain the car’s functionality. Props to him for running a meaty set up on some low offset wheels!

Cory would like to thank his lovely girl Sam Kinard for the awesome pictures!!!

No Springs, No Problem. Corey’s Bagged WRX on Gold DPT’s

Owner: Corey
Car: 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - Gold (5×100x114.3/e22/73)
Tires: 215/40/18
Suspension: Air Lift prototype air suspension

Over here at Wheeldude.com, we appreciate all kinds of set ups done to cars - from time attack cars to street cars, all the way to slammed cars on coilovers. This time around, we would like to show you something different. Meet Corey and his bagged WRX. Yes you’ve seen GD Subarus on air bags already but Corey has been working with Air Lift Suspension Company and they have developed this awesome new air suspension for the newer body Subarus. Slamming a car has never made the Rota DPT’s look so good. Not to mention, a fresh body style to showcase these timeless wheels.

Other mods done to the car:
- 3 inch down pipe
- SPT catback exhaust
- AEM intake
- Torqued Performance stage 2 tune
- Kartboy short shifter w/bushings
- Kartboy shift knob
- JPM Coachworks shift boot
- JPM Coachworks e-brake boot
- Custom headlights with HID
- 20% tint
- 3M carbon fiber roof wrap
- Red taillight overlays
- V-Limited front lip
