Re: THE OFFICIAL SILVER(Arctic/Desert Silver and Gray) Thread

A guy on facebook posted that he was fixing a fuel leak on his WRX, there just happens to be a  silver 92x on the lift in front of him getting a JDM Sti swap.

Re: THE OFFICIAL SILVER(Arctic/Desert Silver and Gray) Thread

I went to get my car inspected yesterday and pulled up next to this '05 Linear at the shop.

That is the box that put a hole in the hatch of my ride.

Re: THE OFFICIAL SILVER(Arctic/Desert Silver and Gray) Thread

Yes it is time to refresh the front end, this will all happen when I install the new fender, rear bumper cover and hatch this spring. And my engine bay is still dirty.

I was selling those SAABaru stickers.

Re: THE OFFICIAL SILVER(Arctic/Desert Silver and Gray) Thread

This is what happens when you mount an Arctic Gray bumper cover on a satin gray car. I am just glad I started with the bumper and not the front fender. I am investigating body shops now.

Clean, but the wheel to tire ratio seems wrong for the car IMO. 17s 4 lyfe

I agree those 18s look a tad large on the Saabaru - although you can't get that sexy concave for those wheels in 17s.

Re: THE OFFICIAL SILVER(Arctic/Desert Silver and Gray) Thread

Too much poke, not enough camber. And yes, meaty 17" setups ftw.

Re: THE OFFICIAL SILVER(Arctic/Desert Silver and Gray) Thread

Alignment being done tomorrow. That will take care of the poke and dial in negative camber.  I think I'll probably swap these wheels wife's legacy they're alittle less aggressive.

http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w64/ej25_TS2/20140523_211041copy.jpg

I think 18s are good for this car.  Multiple spoke designs always look bigger. I just need a front lip to round off the front end.  If she was an aero I'd probally do 17s with meaty tires.

Re: THE OFFICIAL SILVER(Arctic/Desert Silver and Gray) Thread

I would have to agree that those wheels do look a little big, but I think the rims off the legacy would compliment the  92x more suitably.

Re: THE OFFICIAL SILVER(Arctic/Desert Silver and Gray) Thread

They only look too big because of the ride height and camber. 18s on my car look smaller, and I'm way too lazy to care about changing.

Re: THE OFFICIAL SILVER(Arctic/Desert Silver and Gray) Thread

Yeah with current alignment and width and offset they fit big.  But diameter wise I think it's good.  I had a set of 17" rotiform nues lined up but the seller backed out as I was going to pick them up.  I kinna have a wheel addiction so I'm sure this set won't last long.  I've gone through 7+ set on my legacy the past 2 years.
