    So what did you have to do to reset the TPMS sensors?

    My light hasn't fired off yet, but I bought the OEM tool. I'll follow the process described in the forum when I do. Recall that Stuntdoogie thought his wouldn't report the change, but it eventually did.

    Hopefully Discount Tire knows the drill. They will be mounting tires with new TPMS sensors. I don't have the triggering tool.

    Tire rack doesn't mess around. I ordered about 9:30 last night, they called me at 9 this morning to confirm some details, and got a tracking number before noon. Pretty impressed.

    Now UPS just needs to deliver the tires to me. Last time I ordered wheels online (not tire rack) they were delivered to an address almost 20 miles away by mistake.

    Yeah, Tire Rack has pretty good customer service. Ordered my wheels at 11am yesterday and they were delivered today at 1pm. Tried to find either Bridgestone Potenza RE11s or Dunlop Direzza D2s locally, but there are no tires in that size in the DFW area, so I ordered the D2s from Tire Rack today. They already have tracking numbers for both tire pairs. Supposed to be delivered by end of day Monday. I had a question a few minutes ago so I used their online chat feature. I wanted to order a spare center cap (you never know) guy on other side had to check. Got a phone call 10 minutes later and have that ordered as well. They've gotten a lot better... :joyful:

    I think these Sparcos are going to be the rim of choice on the ST, at least for a while.

    I'm tempted to go with one of the crazy colors when I get my track rims. The bright green on my black car would pay into the whole Ken Block thing I guess, not that I'm a huge fan.

    I think I would really like the look of the rims in red with my black paint.

    I've got to do something to spruce the car up. I wish I had held out for red or blue. :confused:

    You could plasti dip or paint.

    I thought red would be cool too but I wasn't that into the look when I saw it on TR's mockup thing. Maybe in person it would be different, though.

    No rubbing even at full lock? How much clearance between tire and front strut now?
    Looks awesome-I'm tempted to get 16's now.

    Thank you. Really, no rubbing! I will say that it's awfully close at full lock -- this is pretty much the max sized tire without some modification. I have not taken a measurement, but with the offset/backspace change, it's only a little closer than stock (which also feels pretty tight).

    Hey, that's fun! I like seeing the different colors. My car theme is "just black" but I like the mix-and-match with the bold colors. Let's see the green wheels!

    Hey McRib, how do you think the clearance will deal with some lowering? I hope to get in on that BC Coilover group buy and an inch lower all the way around would be great ... as long as I don't rub the crap out of the fenders with the 225's ;-)

    Based on what Joe reports, the clearance is improved with the BCs. If we don't get the group buy going, I'll consider waiting for KW's new setup (it will cost more for sure, but is a step-up in technology).
