Default Pre '06 16" rims on an '06?

Can I fit normal '02-05 wrx wheels on my '06? The brakes appear bigger on my '06 and I don't think I've ever seen a pic of a hawkeye with 16's.... Just thinking for Blizzaks
Thanks

Nope, 02-05 WRX rims will not clear your brakes.

Not sure if a spacer will help, or if you need a bigger ID rim.

Thank you for the quick response!!!! I wondered why I never saw it, and why my stockers look sooooo much better on a bugeye than mine!

98-01 2.5 RS wheels will work and I seem to remember that 04-05 Forester XT 16" wheels will work as well. A 3-5mm spacer may work with 02-05 WRX 16's.

x2 on the 2.5RS wheels.

I saw an 06-07 WRX last night with 2.5RS goldies.
