This week we’re focusing on the popular wheels in the Enkei Racing line. We’ve covered the RPF1 already and it’s time for the NT03+M. The NT03+M is a popular wheel yet a challenge for many. The Concave face version is highly coveted for the style yet it has brembo clearance issues. The convex face version is not nearly as popular but offers great sizing in 17″ and they can usually be found used for very cheap.
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.
You read that right, 100% stock suspension 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STi with 9.5″ wheels! Quick background on the car/owner. Ben Wales has had a slew of Subarus over the years. What you see below is a 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI aka. Batscubie #5.
This STi was recently bought when Ben traded in Batscubie #4 aka. the Wraith. Ben had these 17×9.5 +44mm Enkei NT03+M’s on Batscubie #4 (08 STi) with some 275s. Ben wanted to compete in STU with the 2006 STI so he kept the 9.5 Enkei’s and bought some 245’s.
