I've got a set of TC105N and love the look, weight and quality. Mine weighed in at 15.3 lbs in 17x8 size.

Only two complaints: (1) They're a bit pricey for flow-form cast wheels, (2) Wish there...

This is reminding me of the 2015 Mustang all over again.

I'll believe the weight loss when I see it in the production model.

Isn't Jalopnik the site that spawned the phrase "The answer is always Miata." Surprising there aren't more comments about the Miata in there, as it's even slower than the Twins.

When I switched from 215-width Sumi HTR ZIII to 235-width Nitto NT05, it did lose some of that progressiveness. Not a whole lot, but enough to be noticeable.

But the bigger difference is how much...

17x8 is a good size for track days with NA cars. Fits anything from 215-235 width.

If you're pretty sure you'll run a 245 in the future, then go with an 8.5" or 9".

I like the new STI's. Supposed to be a much better handling car than the older ones (I used to have an STI hatch). Congrats and good comparison writeup.
