They've just been gathering dust for two years now, so I thought these would be great for mounting winter tires in the original 215/45-17 size.
My guess is that they'll fit. The 2011 front brakes are no bigger than the 2003-04 WRX brakes. (Sad. The 2006-07 WRX had the bigger four-pots, but Subaru cheaped out in 2008.)
AND ANOTHER QUESTION: I completely forgot about the TPMS -- can the sensors be added to wheels that don't come with them as OEM? Hate that TPMS stuff, sorry.
They can be added to some, but not all. I don't know the answer on these wheels. If you're prepared to not run TPMS, than you'll be fine. And if the sensors fit, it's a bonus.
