Good luck. First, I don't think there are steelies being made in a size to fit over the Brembos, and second, for some reason steelies are just about as expensive as alloys this season, and are hard to find.

Are you talking about ordering 4 spare steelies to use as winter wheels? They are like 4 inches wide. I don't think anyone makes a tire that will fit those wheels that is not for spare use only.

I got OEM steelies & all season tires for sale... but NOT for STI!

Your spare steel wheel is donut size & I don't think there's any regular steelies made for STI. Your best bet is to get cheap winter alloy wheels & tires from Tirerack.

Or pick up some cheap MB Weapon wheels ($145 each) or some used Rotas.

MB Wheels Gear is $101.01 including shipping from Discount Tire Direct.

FYI, MB Wheels Gear is basically JDM A-Tech Finalspeed Gear-R & MB Wheels Weapon is basically JDM A-Tech Finalspeed Eraser.
