Subaru Stars Discount tire steelies?

Discount tire offer 16" steelies advertised to fit my 02 wrx, but the offset is shown to be 41B. Im sure everyone know the wheels im talking about. That seems to be a bit of for a 6.5 width. Im guessing ill have bearing wear with these. Anybody know the offset of the tire rack steelies. thanks for the help!!

we do not take pictures of every variation of steel wheels so, it may have a sligthly different appearance. I'm not even sure which one is pictured.

I'm going to say that the pic is not what you'll get. All the steel wheels pictured at Discount Tire are 4 hole.

The appearnce of the wheels will change with bolt pattern and offset. Yes, the wheels at discount tire will fit (as long as you have stock calipers). We put them on a WRX in rochester mn the other day. If you have stock brakes, they will fit.

They are a lil hard to paint. Make sure you sand them down good. They have kind of a waxey finish.

I never said i wanted the ones with the wrong offset. Thats the reason i posted the question in the first place. Actually the ones u guys show are the ones i want, and from what you said they seem to have the correct offset. Am i right or wrong?
