yeah, i'll agree readily there. there are far more fitments and offset ranges avail in 5x114.3 anyday than 5x100. 5x100 is almost a dead bolt pattern. 5x114.3 is what most japanese 5-bolt uses are moving to almost exclusively. And of course its well used by US manufacteurs as well.
It would be nice if imprezas had gone to that instead of 5x100 from the beginning. I have tons of cars that use 5x114.3, and tons of wheels. hunting down 5x100 for the 6 subarus i've owned sux.
