Blake WRX on 18×9.5 Rota Torque’s in Hyper Black

Here’s another photo submission from one of our customers. Just in case you didn’t know yet, you can send us pictures of your car at gallery@wheeldude.com if you are running Rota/Linea Corse/Rundfaren wheels. These wheels always went well on any Subaru’s. The concave and shape of the 9.5″ width Torques flows with the curves of the WRX. Hyper Black always looked nice on white cars.

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!”

It’s been about 4 years since Mike and the GST crew started building this former daily driver into one of the top up and coming track cars in the country. We, at wheeldude.com, have been supplying them with wheels to make their climb to the top of the award podiums. The folks at 247media.org gave it a proper photo shoot recently to present to you it’s current state. The “L” trim designation stands for “Legendary” in this case, IMO.
