Got the Perrin trunk handle installed, in a completely incorrect manner, but it holds really well.
Really like the front, the black and red badge fits this car

Flushed the brake lines and replaced with Castrol SRF and put the track pads on for my track day on Thu.

First time out in the 2022.

Rear suspension looks lower cause stock rims and tires are in the trunk.

lol, I sat there for a good minute wondering how you managed to get it to look that way without suspension work. Oddly enough, I wouldn't even feel the need to lower my car, but I don't care for the rear wheel gap as where I feel the front isn't too bad.

I really like those wheels.

I didn't think that style would work on the second gen cars, but your car proves it does!

Thanks!

Many years ago I owned a Z3 Coupe and installed a set of BBS RC wheels, which I really loved.

My Enkei Raijin wheels remind me a lot of the RC's.

Am I right in thinking those Raijins are 18s? Looks fantastic!

Yes, they are 18's.

Exact size and offset is 18x8 with an offset of 45mm. For the tires, I am running 225/40-18 Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4's.

BTW, my wheels are Hyper Silver. Enkei also makes them in three other colors that fit a 2022 BRZ: Black, Gunmetal and Matte Bronze.

Im more partial to 17s, but I do like the Raijins... The XM-6 looks like a close approximation, that comes in 17s. I'd rather have the Hyper Silver than Storm Grey, but still...

Are you sitting any lower?

Looks great!

I love those wheels, so much so that I have a set on my 2017 Focus ST.
