I got the 07 bbs, without the hub swap. According to master oem wheel spec, 05-07 bbs are 17x8. And 08-10 are 17x7. I believe they should fit on ok.

These going on your 2005 WRX without a 5x114.3 hub swap or conversion spacers? 08+ STi BBS are 18x8.5 my friend.

07 STi BBS will not fit on your 05 WRX. WRX has 5x100 lug pattern, 05 and up STi is 5x114.

I got wheel adapter to fit to the WRX hub. I am talking the wheel width,because I am trying to get some used tires for the bbs. Between 05+ goldies 17x8 compare to 09-10 WRX wheel width 17x7. They are 1 inch different in the width on the wheel (according to master OEM WHEEL spec) But have the same tires mesurement. That's was my concern if the tires are interchangeable. But MD04WRX said it doesn't matter.

Tires will fit the wheel.
The question is if the wheels + tires + spacers/adapters fit your car.

"smaller width tire"?
Does it mean you are not getting 225/45R17?
