I searched and searched until I found the perfect wheel and tire combination for the Boostaholics GC8 STI build. When I saw that Kami Speed had a crazy deal on the last of the TC105N's ever to be made, I absolutely had to buy a set! I'm really glad that I did. The weight savings, increased rigidity, and improved air flow to cool the brakes made it totally worth swapping out the OEM 2016 STI wheels & spacers combo for a proper set of racing wheels from WedsSport.
Wheel and tire specifications: WedsSport TC105N 17x9+25 Nitto NT05 255/40/17
