Default Will BRZ wheels fit on other Subarus?

I'm going to get more info on this tomorrow, but a quick late night try in the dark makes it seem like the stock wheel has a slightly tapered center bore that prevents it from sitting flush on other Subaru hubs. Anyone have any experience with this?

They should fit...they're 56.1 hub bore like any other Subaru wheel/hub.

I have a pic of BRZ wheels on a 1999 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS coupe and there's one of a bugeye WRX with them. No Google results for this topic?

They will not fit on a 2009 Legacy GT. The centerbore is just slightly undersized. A 5mm spacer could make it work, but as is, they will not sit flush on the Legacy hub.

Yeah, might even be able to make it work with a dremel and some patients...it was more about getting the wheels off my LGT than getting the BRZ's on anything else...

I am going to start test fitting what ever wheels I have laying around soon. I just got some 17x8 bremmerkraft br05's with a +48 offset and they fit perfectly.

Looks way better than stock... the Mach V springs are helping a lot as well, of course.

Thanks, I will have them as soon as the snow stops. I probably shouldn't have smoked up my summer tires so much lol.

They will not fit cars with 4-pot front brakes. The brakes are too big.

The centerbore on he 09 Legacy is the same as any other Subaru, 56.1mm. But the brakes on the LGT are big -- the BRZ wheels might not fit over them.

It's definitely not the brakes. The center bore on the BRZ wheel tapers down to something about 55mm. Checked again and had a dial caliper on hand. Might work with as little as a 3mm spacer.

Woah, this is great news! I was just about to sell my 02 WRX with 17" BBS RKs. Looks like I will be getting the stock wheels mounted with some cheapy tires when I unload the WRX.

The all season Falkens on the RKs will definitely be a bit safer in the winter months!

How do you know it is not correct? did you tighten the lugs?

I'm about to try this set on the 06 outback
