the wheels are 17X7.5 Rotaa$$ Grids Silver with the polished lip with 225/45/17 rubber with little rubbing on one rear wheel only (have to fix that). i have H&R fronts Race springs with the LCR plates (which they do add hight to the car), and on the rear i have Ground Control springs with stock swaybars.

Was that a Subi Forester??
I am impressed with their straight line stats (turbo model),
though I've never seen one try to take the twisties.

Nice video commentary.

Yeah, its a forester. Has to have good grip, but the body roll's gotta be awful.
