Question 2006 Impreza rims -- different?

Will 1998 Impreza wheels fit a 2006 Impreza 2.5i? Thanks!

What size are the '98 wheels? Are they RS wheels or just regular Impreza wheels? Unless they're RS wheels, they probably won't fit.

I have a 1998 2.5RS with gold 16" rims. I also have a set of winter tires on 15" steel rims for that car.

The 2006 2.5i still has the same size brakes as my 1998. However, I heard that the 2005+ Impreza has different bolt pattern. Something like 114.5x5 vs. 100x5. Or does that apply only to WRX STI?

Thanks!

I know your 98 wheels will fit, but not sure about the 15's. The 15's definitely won't fit over the 2006 WRX brakes, but the 2.5 (RS?) may still have the smaller brakes. Only the 2005+ STi has the 5x114 bolt pattern. All "regular" Imprezas still have the 5x100 bolt pattern.

The 16's will fit and if the 15's fit on the 2.5 RS they "should" fit on the '06. Give it a shot and let us know for sure.
