The bolt pattern is right, but I'm going to guess they don't clear the brakes because of the giant lip.

from the looks of it, there's a possibility the spokes won't clear the brakes.

Well some sites selling them say yes, some don't say anything.

I just ordered some I hope they do. I'm worried now.

How do you know??

It's the right bolt pattern.
5x100 for 04 STi.

The 18x7.5s I have now are 38mm Offset I believe.

Would I need a 3mm spacer to make these work then?

you won't know until you get them. at least you got a better width wheel than your last set.

Yea I guess. I called Konig -- they haven't tested them yet. They said "Good Luck"...

If I have to add a 3mm spacer, would I need to get longer studs??

not on a 3mm spacer
you definitly should on a 5mm, though some say otherwise, its never bad to be safe
and anything over 5mm definitly longer studs

yeah, just looking at it. my vote is no. That kinda of wheel design is horrible for cars with larger brakes and high natural offset setups.
I tried fitting my Sportmax 962's (http://www.xxrwheels.com/sportmax_962.shtml) once on my 04 STi just to see. No where near working. Not a snowball's chance.

But hey, by all means i'd love to see someone try to fit these Konig ones.

I like those 962s.

Well they'll be here next week and we'll see. If not, there will be a nice new set for sale in the classifieds. LOL

no luck i'm sure fitting them on an STi ever.
Well, i've seen them on an STi, but they stuck massively out. Not my idea of street-able.

please let me know if those konigs fit your 04 sti, and if they do fit let us know if they hang out to much , i've been told getting a 40-45mm offset makes the tire come out flush with the fender , and also i heard the 05-and up sti's have larger tire clearance's ?? how so ? and how much more ? i have an 06' sti wondering if the afterburners would hang out on mine as much ??

Ugh. I keep seeing this new trend. Convex spokes to give a larger lip...

But you could tell if it had a spacer or not?? I don't think they'll clear without one. Konig still hasn't tested.

I talked to a guy on here that has the 19x8 ET40 set on his. He says the clear fine. I may just go with 19s instead. I'm going to call Konig again on Monday and see if they've test fitted them yet.

I love these rims. And trust me I could care less what others say on here. I know if you don't have Works, Advans, etc you don't 'fit' in around here. LOL. My car, my money, my choice. It's that simple.

I'll let you guys know if I find out anything.

Did you ever get them to fit... I have no interest in doing 19s... 18 is as big as I will go, but I'm just curious...

I never followed through as I'm trying to sell my car. I'm thinking of calling them tomorrow and checking though. I still really like them and may keep my car anyway.
