its been a while since i updated this thread.
Main reason for not making spacers for anyone is, I do not want any responsibility for when something goes wrong. Sorry but thats just me.

HAven't really done much with the car as winter is when Im at most lazy.
Car needs new brakes badly on cold start up they grab as if metal on metal, and have some kind of crazy brake pad deposits on the rotors that makes them look almost like ceramic rotors lol.
So i bought new pads/rotors for all four corners, hopefully ill install next weekend.

and as usual this time of year I bought new wheels, nothing to crazy they are OEM from another blue oval badged manufacturer. Will reveal once i get new tires and install them.

got new wheels and brakes fitted, once i get a chance to wash it will post better pics.




Old rotors didn't really look that bad on the front faces but the back sides were in bad shape, which explains the grinding noises.

Looks good, he does she feel now? What is the width and offset of the new rims? Is there a reason why you went 265 instead of 255? More contact patch?

Did you go stock Subie pads or aftermarket? Centric Slotted Rotors?

Wow you got your money's worth out of the old rotors

wheels are from Explorer, 20x8.5 et44, one thing that is difficult with them is finding right hubcentric rings, when i ordered on ebay a guy said ill have to wait to get them made lol.

reason for 265 is cosmetic and out of used tire selection that i found these had pretty decent rating for the price i paid. They are Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season, with 7-8/32 still left on them.

New brakes are from R1 Concepts, they had a good sale all four corners were 250 shipped. Pads are ceramic, rotors i believe are centric with their twist to them. Good thing about them is zinc coating, no rust, hopefully. They are coated even in the vents and all the back sides too, which means better airflow down the line.
Initial bite is pretty decent although i haven't had a chance to properly bed them in yet.

I like the looks of those wheels, but they would have to be lighter for me to consider them.

Have you been driving around without the Hubcentric Rings? I am asking because when I bought my winter rims, the sales person from Discount Tire insisted that I did NOT need hubcentric rings because he said basically that the 5 Tapered lug nuts do the centering of the rim. He claimed the rings are meant for cars that have non tapered lug nuts.

I listened to what he had to say (basically yessed him) but still bought the rings anyway and run them in both my summer and winter setup. Not sure if there is any truth in what he told me and didn't really look any further into it as I had a set of aluminum rings already, and also purchased a set of Gorilla rings. In my mind it's a better safe than sorry thing...

I got the same advice and do not run with the hubcentric rings. No issues.

I imagine not having those rings puts a lot more stress on your lugs. Yes, the lugs will center them, but the wheel isn't sitting on the hub like it's supposed to.

I have aluminum rings for our winter Lexus RX wheels.

my reasoning to have them, is they center the wheel before lug nuts even start to go on, so its just a tiny bit better.

here are few pics after wash

Are you looking at work? I have some sites that are blocked and don't see pics there, but show up fine at home. Could also be your antivirus...

moved pics to a shared folder, i think they should load now.
in other news, found strange steering feel was due to a bad inner tie rod, so will tackle that soon.
