Throwback Thursday - Kyle’s WRX on Gold Rota T2R’s

Owner: Kyle Power
Car: 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: Rota T2R 18×9.5 +38 5×100 - Gold
Tires: 255/35/18

They say less is more. Check out Kyle’s WRX from way back in 2011. Simple and clean, just the way we like it.

Dan’s 2004 WRX on Custom Painted 17×9 Torques

Owner: Dan
Car: 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: 17×9 Rota Torque - Custom Painted Spanish Gold(5×100/e30/73)
Tires: 215/45/17
Suspension: BC BR Coilovers

We came across Dan’s car on one of the forums that we frequently visit and we couldn’t help but hit him up for a feature. Instead of going for the usual 18×9.5 set up, Dan picked a set of 17×9 Torques custom painted in Spanish Gold for his WRX. Not only does this set up give his car a better ride quality, it also enables the car to accelerate much quicker. One of Dan’s plans in the future is to run 245/40/17 Bridgestone RE11’s for that meaty set up!

Owner: Josh
Car: 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Wheels: 18×9 Rota G-Force - Gold (5×100/E35/73)
Tires: 235/40/18

Josh sent over some pictures of his STI just chilling by the beach. It must be nice to take out your baby to places like that once in a while. :p

It’s Hummel’s second time to get featured on our website and he’s coming back strong! Just in case you missed, here’s his old feature. It looks like Hummel is really busy turning his car into a track monster. Just check out those R compound tires on his Gold Rota T2R’s. Last time we heard, Hummel is planning to run a Voltex widebody kit. As if the Kakumei body wasn’t enough. Can’t wait to see this is all done!


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.

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

Car: 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota DPT - Gold (5×100x114.3/e22/73)

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.

- 3 inch down pipe
- SPT catback exhaust
- AEM intake
- Torqued Performance stage 2 tune
- Kartboy short shifter w/bushings
- Kartboy shift knob

Sam’s OBP WRX on Gold MXR’s

Owner: Sam

Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota MXR - Gold(5×100/e38/73)
Tires: 245/40/18
Suspension: BC BR Coilovers

Sam has owned his WRX since 2008 and his initial plan was to build a fun and quick daily driver. Well, looks like he did just that and has turned the WRX into a head turner as a bonus.

In order to put down all that power and torque that this WRX is currently making, Sam chose the 18×9.5 MXR’s with a +38 offset wrapped in some meaty 245/40/18 rubber. This WRX is also on BC BR coilovers for that perfect stance. For now, check out these pictures courtesy of Nick Kraft of Kraft Photography. We also added Sam’s complete mod list below.
