I am looking to trade my Impreza for a set of 15"x7" rims for the miata.

I have a discription of the car in the reader's rides section. To make a long story short. It dosent start, if it did start you should be able to drive it, but you will have to contend with a center differential that howls like a jet engine on takeoff.

The Subaru is equiped with a set of 16" konig rims, and the previous owner claims he put a WRX swaybar in the back ( I have never bothered to verify this).

yes, If he is interested I am game ( I wonder what the offset is on those rims?).

I am guessing the type of person who would be interested in this trade would be somebody who wants a challenge/lemons/babe car and happens to have miata parts laying around...

In other words a GRMer...

I would trade you my 15X7 Konig rewinds,but the bolt pattern isn't right. I hope you find the car a new home,it doesn't look too bad.

If you were on the right side of the country, we could work something out. Alas, you are about as far from me as possible, while still being in country.
