I've always thought that model wheel would look tough as hell on a forester but I think that pic has convinced me that they just aren't dishy enough on a subaru offset.

I'm guessing you're running 5x114.3 spacers? Those rms in 5x100 are impossible to find.

yeah bit of a bummer on the zero dish. subarus are just not dish friendly cars without stupid amounts of camber or wide body kits. and the sf have zero option for wide body kits that arent 100% custom.

nahh i have nissan hubs all round.

Ah of course I should have known you weren't running suby hubs anymore, good thing too, hopefully means you aren't replacing the bearings every other day.

These are the best flares on the market for the SF IMO.

Next time I'm in the US on business I'm gonna try to grab a set.

That said i reckon there is no way the stock fender liners are gonna work with those flares and wheels to suit and running without liners doesn't seem like a good idea.

yep haha thats exactly why i done it.

hmmm. id have to agree. those are the best looking flares ive seen for an sf. suit it okay.
but i cant stand curved flares. it takes away from all the straight lines the body has. only way id ever be happy is doing a custom metal wide body. which in reality isnt that difficult to do and ill probably end up doing it if i dont write my car off beforehand. if i did.
liners? what is this liner business you speak of... :P

last weekend i welded in some bigger tubs in the front end to make room for the bigger wheels and lock.
also this week been working on retrofitting a pair of s13 hardrace front lower control arms. the front mount on the subframe actually fits and bolts in, ive just had to fabricate a bracket for the caster arm to bolt to the factory caster spot. so i cut off the caster mount on the subaru lca, and have welded a "bucket" onto it to allow me to bolt the s13 caster arm up to the factory subaru caster mount. should have them finished tomorrow :drinks:

At the front, you could just space the OEM fenders out at the rear of the fender where it meets the front door.

Rear, not so easy but doable. Maybe get an old shel and cut the pieces ypu need outof it and rivet onto old body haha.

yeah thats what i have done at the moment. about and inch out, plus ive pumped the guard as much as i can.
and the rears. well yeah thats what i had in mind for doing. ive been on the lookout for a writen off shell with good rear quarters for a while. theres a forester build from the states that has the whole TSS fab catalogue and a bunch of other crazy fab work with custom steel flares.

adjustable arms are in :ok:
plenty of adjustment here!
so i cut off the caster mount off the suby arm, and welded a bracket onto it to bolt the nissan caster arm to. and luckily enough the front mount just fit right in with a larger diameter bolt :drinks:
