Thanks Charlie. Hoping to find a set sometime... although there is no rush.

I cant really tell the difference.  Its not nearly as aggressive as I thought it would be, so to be honest, I think on road performance is not actually that bad. We will have to see in winter when its pouring if she will go sideways around the bends :D

Nice find, Steve!
And ja, be a bit careful on wet tar, those AT-S's do NOT grip like the HT tyres.  She might go straight in the bends...
They ARE better offroad, though!

Thanks for the heads up. I wanted more grip for gravel and they aren't too bad. I need to check the pressure, because they feel hella hard on corrugations.

Road noise at first was not noticeable between the previous ht and these but after driving the new sti and then the forester over the weekend, I did notice the noise quite a bit.

I'm just not sure if I made a mistake going with the 65's.

What would have been the other option?

Leavin at 60s and run my wrx shocks. I fear the 65s will look too balloonish.  Only one way to find out tho.

Today Ill get around to fitting the Polk DXI Components (upfront) and My Polk PA660.4 Amp. I think im going to leave the rear OEM from the head unit until I decide what I want to put in there. Ill be using my Digital designs 8" sub for now.

I have the BT61U

I love the Polks and run a full set in the STI too.


Got as far as dropping them in and tomorrow Ill run connect them to the amplifier. They sound pretty good off the HU.

So, it turns out my installation kit (or what I have left over from car to car) is rather incomplete.

Ill need to get

1 4Awg install kit
1 Distribution block
1 Set of 5.25 rear co-axles (maybe components)
2 Sets of gold plated RCA's


Im a little frustrated with my lack of items. I really wanted to pop the amp in and call it a day.

I dont want to see the forester this morning. Ill be driving the Impreza today.
