I think if it's 18X7.5 it will fit.

I'm ALMOST willing to bet the Brembos and the sachs are the same as the performance pack. It will be interesting when more information comes out.


I might like the 18's if they're like 18x8 or something. Pretty sure they'll be 18x7.5 though.

The Sachs suspension is STI-tuned, so not exactly the one of the performance package. However, no more details. Will they use the stock dampers and change the springs to lower STI's or is it completely new? Dunno.

Pretty happy with my BRZ PP. Interested in the wheels but would prefer an 18x8 if I had 18s. Already rocking:
STI Push Start
STI Shift Knob
STI Front, Side, Rear Aero
STI Rear trunk badge

So I'll likely still order the front STI Stut braces, possibly the bushings and figured if I really wanted an inch lower, I could go for the STI Pink springs with the Sachs dampers I already have. All of which are not hard to order currently. Brakes will be the same. The wing? I don't know. I actually like the 17' wing. Just enough aggressive without drawing too much attention.

My money is on springs.

How can you say that without more information?

They're most likely the Sachs but retuned again and paired with STI pink springs specific to those dampers (STI has released different pink spring SKUs depending on the dampers installed, e.g. stock dampers, tS showa, tS bilstein).

That wing will make it harder to identify the minivan that rear ends me at a green light.

So does that mean the STI pink springs won't be compatible with the dampers from the PP? Or just that the setup with work differently because they (the PP dampers) weren't tuned for them specifically?

Sure, but what IS STI tuned. I could believe that is just springs on the pp sachs, I could believe that is revalved sachs, I could even believe they're just saying that about the performance package...multiple possibilities. That is why I said I could ALMOST bet on the brembos and shocks being the PP parts, but more information is needed.

@DSOmegaX brought up a good point about various pink springs though.

The 18" wheels are 7.5" wide just like the PP cars. Besides the interior bits, most of the add-ons are JDM STI catalog parts bin stuff.

Thought I read somewhere that the JDM tS model had some chassis reinforcements, internal to the car. All I saw about the US tS was mention of some underhood braces. Am I missing something? Or did I make up that bit about the JDM car in my head somehow?

I honestly feel like this is a USDM tS version which isn't as 'hardcore' as the JDM tS was in '15 and doesn't quite have all the available options. Not even an 'STI Sport' tuned exhaust There were many bushings and additional parts released for that tS which we don't see here ... at least from this initial release. Like someone else said, see DSOmega's build.
