Default Axis MOD 7 on an 2006 STI

Will these fit on my 2006 STI? I wanted to do 20x10 in the back and 20x9 in the front. Any experiences? I love them, thanks!

Not really.... Axis does not make the correct offsets for Subaru fitments...

I want to just say NO, but I will say I doubt it. 20's on an STI? Why?!

And I see you were planning in running 2 different size wheels, where youalso planning on running different size tires? Because you can't do that with the AWD. All 4 tires have to be the same size.

Yeah, I probably would do 19x9 all around, I don't know what I was thinking last night. Just drooling over these wheels because I never saw them before. I also heard they make an adapter to make the wheel work with our brembo brakes, ever heard of this? I want to try anything to make these work. Offset I think is up to 45mm I saw.

EDIT: Ok, so these wheels originally wouldn't fit because of my brakes, but now I found this adapter that said it will work with brembo. Then the offset, which I know nothing about, I thought was going to screw up my chances. However, this dealer said offset is available in 15mm 25mm 35mm 40mm and 45mm. So, what am I missing here? Thanks for your help!

be careful with spacers and adapters, they put alot of strain on the hub especially with such large wheels

Where are you getting your info? There are two people alone in the Pasadena, MD area running Axis Reverbs. One guy has gold 17's (I think) on his sedan, and I've got black 18x7.5's on my wagon. I'll have pics posted once my springs are installed.

OP: Just give Axis a call and they'll get you the correct info.

these wheels have been around for forever. no axis does not make subaru specific offsets like +45 and higher. if you want the staggered look, you can go with some of there new line where you can have a staggered lip but retain the same size tire specs.

congratulations, you added nothing to this thread. If you actually read, you would see that I changed my mind doing that.

So if I call axis, will they tell me I could do it with adapters and what not, having no concern of what might happen to my car? Or will they be straight and say yes or no they will or won't fit?

I called two of my wheel distributors and they both told me it (the Reverb) was an approved fitment. I explained my hesitancy because they were +42 vs the "gospel" +53 so often quoted here, but it essentially boils down to the "all wheels are not created equal" argument. So then I called Axis, explained the situation about how this would be a pretty expensive experiment for my company if these didn't fit and they assured me things would work just fine.

And they do.

Wheels look sick on the car.
