Im seriously considering the 5 lug conversion...aloing with installing some USDM/JDM STi Brembo brakes...that means 17 inch+ wheels only.
So...245/45/17 Khumo MX's would be my plan for street tires...i think I might use the new STi stuff so I can use the 17x8 USDM STi wheels...its like 5x114 or something...same as SVX.
For race tires...the 315/35/17, either Hooiser A3S04, Khumo Victoracer or V700 are avalible...those are the same diameter as the streets(i woudl also be revamping the entire transmission...possibly using an EJ box)...but obviously 70MM wider....ofcourse I would be getting some 17x11 or 12 rims for those.
The question is...Im wondering, and I think its possible...to make a widebody kit and not have to start relocating peices of unibody. I can roll/flare for tire clearance all I want in Street Mod for Solo 2...custom work for this is not an issue, i can get it done no problem, and I'll have fully adjustable coilovers setup for some serious roadcourse/solo2 action...so I can adjust the height to whatever I want.
What kind of issues do ya'll see me having trouble with?

That means using the new STi wheel bearing stuff....im working on how to do the rear and stay in SM. 05 STi=STRONG.

205/60/13 is what I have for the street tire.
When i get to the 5 lug and the big 17 inchers...the gearing will be redone...so the 245/45/17 will be almost the "stock" diameter for the gearing I will have.

I'll let you guys know how it goes..
I know I'd want to put sti stuff on my car but I know our puny MC would feel like mush and fluid volume would be insufficient. I dunno if the sti MC designed to work with abs will integrate easily with our setup without the ABS..I know for sure the legacy part mounts right up so I'd consider that a serious must on that setup..highest bore legacy MC is 1 1/16"..
