offset doesn't determine brake clearance, wheel design does….what wheels do you have?

I have a 2006 WRX sedan that came with these wheels and on one of the inside spokes on each wheel is: 17x7JJ55, which should mean these have a +55 offset? Yes?

Im kinda confused. According to the first post, its states 04 STI bbs 17x7.5 weighs in at 15.7 lbs each. The 05-07 STI bbs 17x8 weighs in at 19lbs each. Does the 0.5 inch really add 3.3lbs to the wheel? DAMN!

Those weights are correct. It's not just the wheel width -- the later wheel has a 14.3mm larger bolt circle, which means the center pad is significantly wider, and therefore it weighs more.

They're still 5x100 bolt pattern, and the Premium and Sport wheels are 17x7. I don't yet know the offset or weight, but have asked over on the 2012 Impreza mega-thread.

I'm having a hard time finding this info. Will a 245w fit on the 2004 STi wheel? I have an 05 WRX and I run STX in the ATL autox. I need to go upto the max width which is 245.

Thanks for the write-up best one on this interwebz!

This question should be asked somewhere else. This thread is intended to give factory Subaru wheel specifications. Start a new thread (or find an existing one) asking about specific non-stock tire fitment.

I'll update the thread accordingly.

Or, you can call me and pay me to do research for you. I'd be okay with that.
