Default Rota 16" Slipstream fit WRX?

Will the Rota 16" Slipstream fit the 02 WRX?
I don't like big heavy fat wheels.

Slipstream

Well, according to the web site, they don't come in the 5X100 bolt pattern for Subarus, and the 40mm offset is WAY too low, so no, they won't fit.

I found another thread in which Revolution discussed getting them made. I wonder what it would take to get the Slipstream made in 16 and 17" sizes?

Any ideas?

They're a knockoff of Spoon wheels, I mean, they look nice and all, but I wouldn't want to put it on a Subaru just cause of the fact that it's associated with Honda y'know?

They are a knockoff of the Desmond Regamaster EVO, which makes the spoon wheels. And they are for alot of cars.

I know.

Revolution posted in another thread today that the 17" mold just isn't ready yet. Maybe Rota can give us a more concrete date? I'd like a set for the track...I hate dismounting and remounting tires..what a waste of time!
