The FRS/BRZ cars come with telepathic steering and handling rivaling $60,000+ vehicles but are hampered by Prius tires from factory. They wanted us to slide but some of us want to grip.
We at Gumotorsport like to run 17x9 wheels for track and competition and 16x8 or 17x8 for street driving. While picking wheels, FRS BRZ owners will be looking for the lightest package they can find for performance gains.

Openflash tablet V2 - Open source tuning for those that want a bit more power in naturally aspirated form, can program pop tunes, launch control and pedal dance mode ,etc , this tablet is all you need as an introduction to power gains.

These cars come out of the factory very tame and since we previously listed headers, best way to pair them is with a catback/ axle back exhaust for best audio coming out of the back pipes.
Happy Modding !
