Default Rim question

Guys, any idea if RX8 5 Spokes will fit on my 09 STI? Got a set leftover from when I had my Speed 6. They are 18" , 50 offset. 5x114.3

The bolt pattern and the offset is good, but you will have to try it out to see if it clears the brembo's or not.

The center bore size is good too. Going in the other direction (Sti on RX8) doesn't work

So my RX8 Winter rim setup is a fail. They don't clear the Brembos. What do you guys say about spacers, and is there anywhere local that sells the Ichiba V2's?

Try a 3mm and a max 5mm spacers will that clear?

If I do the Ichiba's I'm concerned if I don't go far enough out with them that the studs will rub the back of the wheels. Got to get it right the first time.

did a bunch of measurements yesterday and it looks like I need to get 25mm spacers ( Ichibas with built in studs) just to clear the stock studs from rubbing on the backside of my rims. What negative impact do you think there will be with 25mm spacers, as far as steering and drivetrain are concerned?

why not get a set of Rotas instead having so much trouble to go thru

or look for a set of so so condition used rims from US members, since u are using it for winter, doesn't really matter about the condition as long as it's not bent

I'm not wanting to spend a bunch of money on rims right now when I have a good set with winters on them. Just need to get them to fit.
I would consider Rota's though as I've been thinking of going with G-Force's for summer, who sells them locally?
Another option: Anyone have any BBS stockers for sale?

Any of you guys with a GR run 25mm Spacers? Need to know if this is a good idea or not, cuz I have a full winter set in the garage that won't clear the Brembos without them.
Thanks
