any reason y some of them regret after changing to the 17" inch?

IMHO well basically its a simple to ur qns.. when u get bigger size rim u get bigger size tires so weight of ur car will definately be heavier as u got more grip on road surface.. well they regret it cos it will definately affect their FC likewise u can go for Light in weight rims from Jap so u will gain slight better FC.

I am looking into Simota Carbon Charger and the Apexi Power Intake but was told by Mcwell Saleperson tht Apexi power intake onli gd for Mid range n High End power.. where he pointed out tht TS has a prob in the low or initial pickup.. so he recommended me Simota Carbon Charger as it will help in the low n mid range power.. (as in for local usuage it will be better)

 

Btw anyone owner here has install Unichip or Greddy Engine Managment System in their TS, i do wan to find out more feedback on it.. :) thanks alot :)

Your fuel economy will suffer, and brakes wear faster. Although the rims and tires could be marginally heavier than stock however this additional weight generate substantial rotational inertia (flywheel effect). Furthermore, wider tires are more grippy because of larger contact surface area however it also means increase in frictional force and drag.

 

On a larger rim and to maintain the same rolling circumference as stock, you would need lower profile tires. Lower profile tires are more stable during cornering due to less flex in the side wall but with a lower side wall, ride comfort will suffer, especially for passengers. This effect is compounded if the car is lowered.

 

The cost of two 17" tires will easily get you three 15" tires and three jugs of beer.

 

Everyone wants to race a subaru, especially a fully done-up Subaru so that they can go to their respective forums to brag how their Kia ate the subaru for lunch, or their Vios smoked a subaru.

Rex stock rims are good if you can get a good deal. They are not only sought after by TS, but also Foresters. At least you know that the Rex stocks rims would have no problem should you subsequently upgrade your to ReX 4/2 brakes. Further 16" tires are at least 30% cheaper than 17" tires.

also been wanting to ask.. what is 4/2 brake upgrade..?

 

Front 4 pot brakes, rear 2 pot brakes.

For TS, the front is plug and play, but the rear conversion from drum to disc brakes is quite major.

 

It is not advisable to change just the front to 4 pot brake and keep the rear drum as the car will dive excessively during heavy braking.

 

Another option is to keep the front brake but change the rear drum to Forester's single pot brake.

The 2.0XT, and 2.5XT comes standard with 1-pot rear disc brake, only the 2.0X comes with rear drum, similar to TS.

 

 

what is the difference btween 4 & 2 & single pot brake?

 

More pots mean more pistons, more pistons mean bigger surface area of the pad acting on the rotor during braking. However more is not necessary good because it generates more heat which will cause brake fade.

 

dunno why impreza dun have rear disk brake.. this really sux rite..?:(

 

Personally I would think for street driving, the drum brake is as effective as a disc brake. FHI must have factored this into their design, and it must meet international safety standards. A TS is easily the heaviest 1.6litre car in the market, and it must have tremendous braking capability considering a VIOS is easily 20% lighter.

 

If you have a set of fancy 17" rims, it just doesn't look right if the rear is on drums. Bling factor is of paramount importance for some :angel:
