i'm tring to get as much info as possible on my newest project. i was told that you were the man to talk to.
i plan on squeezing some 26.1" tyres under a stock ea82. i heard that you did this on a hatch. how bad did you have to reshape things? what should i do, what are some shortcuts? should i go chevy, toyota, or should i just spring for the pugs?
thanks braha

i know you are asking zap. but he used pug rims, 14". if i'm not mistaken.

if you use a chevy or toy rim. your offset will make the tires stick out farther, causing you to have to bend more of the back of your fender and cut more of your fender to make them fit.

If it's the beige hatch you're talking about, I believe he is using some wheels that were imported from Australia and the hatch has a 4inch lift. Here's a picture of the one I'm talking about.

no i'm talking about his really old hatch. before he started lifting his cars. and that's a 3" last time i checked and is now sitting on my old swampers. eric buys, sells, and modify's subaru's left and right. he's owned more subaru's than i've dreamed of owning.

can't find a picture of it right now. but it's a white hatch. and he owned it in the late 1990's is when he owned it.

the hatch was way before it says you joined the board. cause he had it way before i was a member. seen it on videos, heard about it, and seen many pictures of it.

ahh i think this was the one.
