Anything you recommend? The stuff we have at the shop works really well, but it’s $$$. All the consumer grade products I’ve tried are too greasy.

Something to keep them black without looking like a Mother’s commercial.

OP, your first mistake was throwing money ay a problem you didn't understand.

I recommend you spend some quality time learning about wheel specifications, tire specifications, wheel alignment, and suspension.

You bought incorrect wheel and tire combination you thought would work. Then you threw good money after bad trying to bandaid it with spacers and it still isn't right.

Asking internet for answer won't work. You have to put in some time and learn what you want, how to achieve bit, and what you are doing.

Good luck.

Lowering the car should be done before buying new wheels. Those STI wheels have a high offset and are 7.5 in. wide. Not very aggressive IMO. Nothing wrong with spacers as long as they are installed and torqued correctly. All you need is to lower the car a little. I had the Enkei TS10s 18x8 with Eibach spacers 20mm front and 25mm rear along with eibach springs. Here is a pic of my car a few months back.

That's insane! Good luck on the install. It won't take more than a few hours.

I've been satisfied with chemical guys VRP.
Dresses up your plastic trim nicely too.

Optimum tire coating lasts months. I'll be trying that next.

Like said above, 303 Aerospace works well enough. If you want a *little bit* more shine without it being greasy, try Ammo Mud. I'm a big fan of the stuff.
