Karlton Flares have been popping up all over the place, but these were one of the first sets and indeed the first car to be running 18x11s and 315s!! I want toÂ apologizeÂ to the owner as I didn’t save who it was, but if you see this please contact me I want a current setup full feature (if you’re interested).
Quick couple photos of a GR STi sitting on 18×9.5 +38mm GramLight 57DRs in 18×9.5 +38mm.
Tristan is running coilovers and rear control arms which allowed him to make the adjustments he needed to fit these wheels/tires and get the stance he wanted.
The Enkei RPF1 17×9 +35mm require an 8mm spacer to clear the brembos. Big thanks to J Chhim for helping confirm the minimum sized spacer for these wheels.
As you can see here they have approximately 2 to 2.5mm of clearance with the 8mm spacer.
I’ve had multiple requests and questions about how to further modify ones fenders on a 05-07 GD Subaru Impreza WRX STi. For some people, the normal fender mods seen here in my previous article are not enough to fit their more aggressive wheel fitments. This is also known as a fender pull, even though there is no physical pulling of the fender. I haven’t forgotten about the guys looking for the wider wheels or lower offsets. A big thank you goes out to Matt aka. The Limited Project for documenting his process. This is the exact process I did for my personal car. Lets get straight to it!
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. 🙂
