Has anyone used this to do this?

Is it safe? Will the offset of wheel not the be the "standard" for the 114.3 setup on a 2004 STi? Any input would be great. Thanks!!

For street use? Probably not, they are 15mm thick. Maybe for track days...

You would need to find a wheel with an offset around 60 offset to keep a stock appearing offset. You wouldn't be able to use sti wheels with these unless you wanted em to poke out 15mm more than stock. BTW I have a set of the 15mm spacers, not converters, and they are good quality. I only have about 100 miles on them but I use them daily in Chicago and so far they are fine.
