Default 215/55/16 Firestone WinterForce on my 07 WRX wagon

Just got back from Discount Tire with my dedicated winter setup:

2007 WRX Wagon; stock suspension
215/55R16 Firestone WinterForce tires
"Unique Wheel" brand steel wheels (16x6.5, 5x100, Offset =41.3, CenterBore=72mm)

No rubbing, no problems.

Got the new tires (still had the stickers!) from eBay and bought 4 wheels at Discount Tire. If I were to do it all over again I woulda just ordered it all from Tire Rack and had em shipped to my house (although I saved $100 doing it my way).


I was reading and searching my ass off looking for info during my buying process, so I hope this can help someone along the way!

so, what you are saying is that Discount put you on a set of wheels with the wrong offset and centerbore ... did they have some sort of centering ring for the wheels?

Centering rings were included. I noticed online that they're also included with your steel wheels.
I decided that an 8mm offset difference really won't matter that much for the 1500 miles I'll put on them.
