I dont know what bolt pattern the WRX uses, however the 2004 STI is a 5x100 bolt pattern and 2005+ is a 5x114.3

partially correct...of the USDM WRX STi, only the 04 BBS will fit.

But there are plenty of other STi wheels that are 5x100

I have always loved Ver. 7 STi Goldies

Other STi wheel options are the Enkies found on the 08 Forester Sports, The S202 had some very cool Rays..etc. (there are lots more)

Enkeis (same style as Spec C...found on Forester Sports and other models):




v.7 Goldies:



Forester STi wheels are 5x100:

No.


ALL Imprezas, Foresters and Legacies are 5x100 with the following exceptions:

2005+ WRX STI (not WRX!) are 5x114.3

2004 WRX STi are 5x100 like all previous Imprezas

All STI rims will fit on the '06 WRX. They both use 17" wheels. Though, why would you want to go thru the trouble of cutting there STI rims off and welding them to WRX wheels?

I'm dead serious. Why would he just want the rims? Getting the entire wheel would be so much easier.

I agree. Off the top of their head (I don't feel like searching through that giant wheel database), does anybody know how wide they are and how much they weigh?

LOL. Rim technically means the outer part of the wheel. Hence you'd have to cut the "rim" from the rest of the wheel. Most people don't know this. There's a diagram somewhere that shows it though.

+1 for the V7 STI golds. I had considered purchasing a set but went with some gold SSR GT2s instead because they were a bit lighter overall
