Default Enkei GTC01 Fitment

Hi,

Can someone confirm if the Enkei GTC01 (18x9 et40) will fit on an 08 STi with out any issues?

I can't seem to find the answer.

Thanks,

You probably wont get any info on wheel fitment until someone buys a set for the wrx. You can how ever inquire about returns though. There are alot of businesses that will sell you a set of wheels and return them if they dont fit (as long as you dont mount the tires on them).

Those should fit fine, those wheels have crazy caliper clearances

if you run stock sized tires you shouldn't have issues.

if you go to a wider tire you'll need to roll the rear fenders.

18x9 +40mm is a pretty common setup for a GD Impreza.

on an 08 STi with the stock tires you shouldn't have any problems. (if you do, a slight roll will take care of it).

although it'd be best to roll the rear fenders and slap on a 265/35/18 tire.

they are a little aggressive for the fenders ... a lip roll and some negative camber and you should be good
