The 2011 Sti ones won't work because they are a different lug pattern, not because of physical wheel size...

Updated pix of my red wrx with gold bbs, kind a rare combo. Thinking of lowering it a little. At first could not get use to the sport chrome grille, now seems to work fine.

if you dont want it just get the wheels and tires without them. the TPMS warning light will come on all the time though. i just ignore it, it doesnt affect anything.

Any tampering with the TPMS system, including removing the bulb is actually against the law. I would recommend ordering a new set of sensors, I think it's about $270, or if you're not going to use your factory rims, have the shop swap them over.
The TPMS system even when activated does not have any effect on how your car runs. The only downside is that you'll always have that annoying little light on your dash.
If you have tuning software it may be possibe to manually disconnect the receiver and then shut off the resulting CEL code in your tuning software. That is just a theory based off what I have read on other forums.

I just picked up a set of 2011 OEM wheels and installed them on my bone stock 09 WRX tonight. I will post pics in the morning when I have some light. Looks great and no rubbing.

Default OEM 2011 wheels on 2009 WRX

Wheel Specs: OEM 2011 WRX wheels, 17 x 8
Tire and Specs: OEM 235/45R17
Suspension: stock
Fender Modification: n/a
Wheel Spacers: n/a

Just picked these up from a guy on Craigslist. I wanted to stay as "stock looking" as possible, so originally I was going to pick up a set of Prodrive GT1 but got a deal on these that I couldn't pass up. Personally, I think they look pretty good with the Spark Silver. I painted the centercaps to give it a little more original look to it.

What you you guys think? Would love to lower it a little, but I'm an avid skiier so I need as much clearance as possible.

I have a question for all of you guys who rolled your fenders in the rear: what did you do about that lip of putty on the far inside of the fender? I started trying to roll mine like a noob, and a piece of it just came off. I got some touch-up paint, so no biggie, but I didn't want to keep rolling until I got that sorted out....

I just ripped it off and kept rolling. Then went over it in touch up paint.
