This 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi you’re about to see here has lived. It has had many different stages, I’d wager to say it has been re-born more than once. Currently the car is in the capableÂ hands of Billy Muller, Billy isn’t one of those young wippersnappers who found an STi on craigslist for $8k and started blindly throwing parts at it.

Quick little set of photos of the Karlton Flares in action at the 2011 Tire Rack SCCA Solo Nationals this past week.
Karlton placed 6th overall in SM after both days!! I can’t wait to see how Karlton does next year with some more tire and some more fine tuning. Maybe it’ll be time for t3hclap.com to take a road trip. 🙂
Adam has once again stepped up to the plate and blasted it out of the park. The first things that caught my eye on these photos were the Enkei RPF1s. I may be a little biased towards the Enkei RPF1, but the SBC color is a perfect match for Aspen White without question. Your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you, Adam is rocking the huge Karlton fender flares, a huge front splitter, and a massive Kognition wing. Adam opt’d for all that extra grip and downforce to help him get an edge in the Limited GT AWD class for the upcoming Global Time Attack at Willow Springs this weekend (5/20/2011).

There has been a lot of chat out there about a certain set of new fender flares that are on the market. I get a lot of questions about what wheels are available in the correct sizes. A few months back I compiled a list of 18×10.5s and it’s about time I shared it with everyone.
The sweet spot is 18×10.5 +15mm with a 295/30/18, coilovers and some camber. Go Ginormous or GTFO.
This first post will be all 1 piece wheels that clear the STi Brembos, the 2/3 piece article will come later once we know exactly how aggressive we can go with these monster flares Karlton has created.
So, you want to cover up your 285s or you want to squeeze your 315s off your vette on to your STI? Karlton has your solution. He got flares built to his specs and now he’s written a nice little how to for us all. I’ll leave the rest to Karlton.
I had these flares produced as I had a need for fitting wider tires for autocross. I thought about doing a widebody, but the cost of install kind of scared me away, as often times the cost of the install and paintwork is more than the cost of the widebody kit LOL. So I went for the next best thing, I had some fender Â flares made for my car. Relatively simple to install, and a whole lot cheaper than the widebody route. So I basically can have a widebody to fit my tire needs without the crazy cost 🙂 So how do you install these you ask? Well let’s start with the front since it’s the easiest to do.
