If you’ve been on Instagram and Facebook a lot these past few days, we’re pretty sure you’ve seen this STI making its rounds on different Subaru pages. Who wouldn’t want to share a car that looks good as this? Joe, also known as subie001 on the internet, is the proud owner of this beast rocking a set of 18×11 Rota MXR’s wrapped in 295/30/18 rubber. Joe installed a set of Karlton flares to house that massive wheel setup and says that his car handles like a dream but takes some getting used to. Joe’s STI also has a pretty long list of power mods to match that aggressive stance. We are definitely in-love with this car!

Joe would like to thank Dustin Roach for the sick pics, Team DDR and everyone who helped him with the build.

17×9 Rota RT5s in Flat Black on the Wheeldude FR-S

Owner: Wheeldude
Car: 2013 Scion FR-S
Wheels: 17×9 Rota RT5 - Flat Black (5×100/e42/73)
Tires: 245/40/17
Suspension: KW V3 coilovers

Looking for a 17″ square set-up for your FR-S/BRZ? We’ve got the perfect wheels for you! The 17×9 RT5s were designed specifically for your cars and can accommodate tires as wide as 255/40/17, depending on how far you are willing to go with your suspension and fender mods. Meaty set-up, anyone?

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.

Throwback Thursday - con10der8’s Bugeye on Flat Black DPT’s

Owner: con10der8 on nasioc
Car: 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX
Wheels: Rota DPT 18×9.5 5×100/5×114.3 +22 73hb Flat Black
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!

Tires: 245/40/17
Suspension: KW coilovers

Check out the second part of a two-part feature of our FR-S running the 17×9 Titans Square Set Up. Yesterday we only showed you the right side of the car which had the Flat Black Titans on. (Click HERE to see the first part.) Who knew we had a surprise waiting for you guys waiting on the other side of the car? As promised, here is our FR-S on 17×9 Titans in Sports Bronze.

Throwback Thursday - Tom’s Aggressive STI on 18×10 SVN-R’s in Hyper Silver

Owner: Tom
Car: 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Wheels: 18×10 Rota SVN - Hyper Silver (5×100/114.3/E30/73)
Tires: 255/35/18 Yokohama S-Drives

Gotta love that meaty and functional set up! Those extra wide tires have grip for days. Perfect for those occasional canyon runs.

Aaron’s Scion TC on 18×10 Flat Black SVN-R’s

Owner: Aaron
Car: 2012 Scion TC
Wheels: 18×10 Rota SVN - Flat Black (5×100/114.3/E30/73)
Tires: 265/35/18
Suspension: KSport Coilovers

We are big fans of sedans and coupes but this particular Scion TC is a hatchback we wouldn’t mind owning! Aaron had a vision before he even started modding the car. He wanted a clean, beefy and functional car to take him around town. Aaron was able to do all that in less than a year which makes us more excited about his future plans for the car. We heard that this mad hatchback is going to get a turbo kit soon too. Should be sick!

Kelly’s 2011 STI on Flat Black Rota PWR’s

Owner: Kelly
Car: 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Wheels: 18×9.5 Rota PWR - Flat Black(5×114.3/e32/73)
Tires: 265/35/18 Hankook Ventus V12
Suspension: BC Racing Coilovers

Kelly sent us some pictures of his 2011 STI running the new Rota PWR’s. These wheels have the +32 offset but only required a rear fender roll even with the meaty 265/35/18 tire set up. Gotta love that aggressive set up!


Throwback Thursday - Derek’s STI on 18×9.5 +35 Rota DPT’s

Customer: Derek
Car: 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Wheels: 18×9.5 +35 Rota DPT Matte Bronze

Here are some photos that Derek took on a cloudy December day back in 2010. Derek’s choice of rollers are the DPT’s in 18×9.5 +35 wrapped in some meaty 255/35/18 tires. Nice car and love the plate!
