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.

A short little “where are they now” feature. Feb 2009 I did an article on a simple yet awesomeÂ White GR STi, it turned out to be one ofÂ the most popular articles. It all started in the mindÂ of a crazy guy from California who wanted to buildÂ a “family car”. Many should remember his first feature, if you don’t be sure to check it outÂ (CLICK HERE).

Stumbled on a few photos from Rally Sport Direct’s 2011 STi sitting on 19×10 +35mm Yokohama Advan RZ-DF.
They didn’t wait long to roll those rear fenders, slap on a new suspension and some adjustable rear arms and some 265s. The car still has its temp tags! Go RSD! I’m not a fan of black wheels but the Matte Finish on these Advan RZ-DFs is amazing.

Last month I was at Sebring International Raceway with Chin Motorsports. The car was ready, I was as ready as I was going to be so my fiancÃ©e and I headed down to Sebring Friday night after work. Bright and early on Saturday morning I head over to tech/registration and begin prepping my car (ie. remove all the stuff I thought I might need). After the driver’s meeting and class session my instructor and I hit the track for the first session.

â€œThe Limited Project,â€ the story â€“
Matt bought his 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Limited in October 2006, there hasnâ€™t been a dull moment with this car. Matt bought STi Limited #657/800, and has had a wrench in his hand until present day. Thatâ€™s nearing four years of differing phases and modifications. This isn’t Matt’s first modified car, nor his first Subaru.
