    DocWalt's answers are spot on.

    TPMS is optional. I don't run them however every time you start the RS you will have to hit OK when it warns you about the TPMS sensor before you can switch drive modes. Unlike some cars, it does not prevent you from turning TCS or ESC off.

    i shopped around in the past and Tire Rack was always very competitive for the prices I was able to find so I don't bother to look. Their service is top notch and I usually receive everything if in stock the next day or two days at most with normal shipping. They are a major sponsor of the SCCA so it makes it even easier to want to give them my business. Anytime I have had any issues they take care of it ASAP with no hassle. For example, two of my OZ center caps discolored that I had for my ST. They sent me an entire set, no charge, no questions asked, no pictures even needed, and told me to keep the old ones. Had issues with trim rings once, and same experience.

    Where does everyone stand on their BS builds?

    I'm only at 18x8 255/35 re71r
    Air filter

    I still need to source some brake pads, has anyone settled on what's working well?

    Beyond the price of tires, any reason not to go with 19's over 18s?
    19's would mean not having to buy more rims.

    You aren't going to get the width on them either that 18s can handle without rubbing
