I hate disguising wheel fitment these days. It’s all anyone seems to care about. Forget power, handling and the overall driving experience. It seems that wheels are the end all for any car. I appreciate good stance as much as the next guy, but as time goes on I find that I’m judging cars less and less by it. There was a time when I was all over slammed and flush, but now I usually prefer more performance oriented styles. This STi, for example has some of the best fitment I’ve seen in a very long time.
For me it’s all about meaty tires nowadays. That doesn’t mean you can’t have wide, low offset wheels. It takes equally as careful planning to run an aggressive tire as it does to run a stretched setup. This type of look isn’t as eye catching as the current trends but it’s very satisfying from a form and function perspective. Many of you will disagree and that’s completely fine. But for me, this is the ideal look.
