That may not be the correct answer. Don't give up just yet.

That is not the determining factor. If you are talking about the gold STi brembos, they probably won't clear. The spoke design has as much to do with clearance as offset.

I don't know the answer, but just knowing the width and offset is not enough to make the call.

06 STi (brembos) = 5x114.3 bolt pattern
09 WRX = 5x100 bolt pattern

The rims won't fit on an 06 STi anyway, even if they did clear the brakes.

04 STi is the only one with brembos and 5x100 and NO, they won't clear those brakes.

Ok, that makes more sense. Doesn't change the answer though.

I knew about the bolt pattern my question was whether or not the rims that I have will clear the brembos from the inside...I know that 05+ sti rims will not fit my car because of diff bolt pattern
