I was just looking at that wheel/tire combo last night (as in checking prices/availability). Please post some pictures once they're mounted. I'm sure they'll look great. 👍 I'm curious about any extra tire noise at highway speeds and, over the long run, gas mileage. Since I also have a 6MT, I'm also VERY curious how the car feels, especially off the line.

Is this the exact size you ordered? Thanks in advance.

Yes these are the exact wheels. I was lucky and scored these used locally.

That looks fantastic! Love the stance and the 10 offset is perfect. Thanks for posting such detailed pics.

After you've driven it a bit, if you don't mind, can you report back on how the 6MT feels off the line? I'm interested in knowing if it takes more of an effort to start out in 1st or if it feels about the same as stock. I'm guessing once things are rolling, it should feel okay. I love my Crosstrek but the 2.0L is barely adequate already (in my humble opinion). I'm hoping a new wheel/tire setup like that won't affect it too much. 🤞

Thanks!

I drove it about 10 miles to grab dinner tonight. Really loving the look and ride and so far it doesn't seem much louder than stock. Above 40mph all I hear is my basket anyways. Will report back after driving it a bit more, but so far no real notice starting in 1st although I do have a Pedal Commander.
