Default quick question 06/07 wheels on 08/09 wrx?

Hi folks,

i tried searching and i couldn't come up with the right search terms for my question (and i really hope its not in a faq somewhere).

do the 06/07 wheels fit the 08/09 wrx? i know the bolt pattern is the same, but what about brake clearance and offset?

any pics? couldn't find any in the gallery either.

Don't the 08/09 WRXs run a similar brake setup to the LGT? If so, the 06/07 wheels SHOULD fit as people have successfully run 06/07 wheels on LGTs.

Aren't the 06/07 WRX wheels narrower than the 08/09 ones (7" vs. 7.5")?

did the brakes change between 06/07 and 08/09?

really ought to start a thread of which parts are interchangeable between the years. i think a lot are, but i'm sure there's a lot that aren't.

Yes they will, if you keep the tire size reasonable. The stock 08-09 STi tire size is too tall. 225/40/18 will fit on the 08-09 rims though and fit just fine on 05-07 STis.
