You don't know anything about me. And i never said i couldnt afford "real" wheels. I said i liked the style of them. Maybe you should get a real fuking car Instead of going out and spending the money on an STI or even a WRX for that matter you bought the worst year Subaru ever made and a 2.5i. So instead of talking shiat about people buying knock off wheels maybe you should look at your poser self.

Question guys. I'll probably post in the wrong format but I hope I'll still get some input.

Year: 2013
Model: WRX Premium Hatchback
Wheels: 17x8 Offset: +53
Pattern: 5x100
Tires: 235/45R17


I've been looking for a set of wheels to use in the winter and found a set of Forester XT oem wheels with 225/60/16. That's all the info the seller posted and I'm trying to ask more. But does anyone know if 16" forester XT wheels will fit on 2013 WRX if they are 5x100?

chill the **** out. that attitude wont get you far around here.

and someones car purchase doesn't make them a "poser."

the "worst year" refers to the STi and WRX, not the 2.5i.

i'm pretty sure the CH-R isnt available in a friendly offset/hub bore for our cars anyways.

Yes. The OEM forester tires should clear your struts as well.

If you take a second, relax and do some searching you'll find that the CH-Rs run $2500+ for a set and weigh ~25lbs/wheel in an 18x8.5. Whether you can afford them or not, I highly doubt many people would pay that for a one piece wheel. $3k/set will get you into 2 or 3 piece range from equally reputable companies and cut your weight significantly. Or you can pick up some JDM wheels for under $2k that weigh a lot less (my 18x8.5 Rays weigh ~18lbs each).


Also, what's wrong with hawkeyes?

You're mad because I made the assumption that you are more likely to buy a $1000 set of wheels over a $2500 set? Get over yourself. If life was about the car you owned I'd move back in to Mommy and Daddy's and get myself a new M3 or used GTR. Oh yea, I listed multiple wheels because I don't know which one is the chicken and what's the egg, bro.

P.S. Is Drake your last name? Me too!

I have no idea about hub/bore size but, they come in a respectable width for later model Imprezas. 18x8.5 +38 5x100

Edit: oh wait, he drives one of those 5x114.3 cars.... You can get them in 20x9.5??

Yea true. Life is not about the car you drive. Sorry for the heated reaction. The inference that I would buy knock off wheels was insulting and unnecessary. This thread is for wheel fitment. It's for guys like me who don't know much about fitting certain wheels and the guys who can offer the vast amount of knowledge that they have to them. Lets keep it to that.

And yes my last name is Drake.

I have a 04 STI, with ATS wheels 18x8 ET51 with 225/40/R18 tyres and D2 coilovers.
What spacers do I need to flush these wheels for best looking stance ? I can roll the rear fender lip and I want to camber around -2 -3 front and rear.

Thanks !

You should consider new wheels, you'll need about a 30mm spacer to be "flush". Just take out a ruler and measure what size you'd need for the look you're going for.

XXR 527 17x9.75 +25 , before i had on a 245/40/17 and rocked -4 camber around to sit flush (i was low and stanced at the time), but this time around i want to try and run 265/40/17 with little camber...i have rolled fenders all around, and may pull my rears if needed..so in other words...

2008 wrx stock suspension (waiting on RCE tarmac 2 coils to arrive)
but im about to purchase volk te37s 17x8 which give u the option to choose 38mm or 44mm offset, which offset will make my rims flush with fenders? and also planning on having 255/40/17 tires put on for spring/summer.

bascially what offset should i choose to get the flush fitment and would those tires fit without rubbing if i lower my car .5-1" ?

It depends if you wanna run slight camber or not, I own a bugeye so I'm not particularly sure about 08's, but knowing my friends hatch..you should be fine with the +38 and IMO will look better, BUT may have to camber in about -.5 degree/-1, which is nothing really. My buddy fit +20 on his 08 and poked a little to give you an idea.

Default Can someone help?

I have 2011 sti sedan pbp. and am trying to see if xxr 527 will fit. if the stock offset is +55 will +20 offset be fine? Im trying to swap the stock enkeis for the xxr's the xxr's will be 18 inches with the sti 5-114.3 bolt pattern and a 9.75 rim width.. will these fit without any fender rolling? im not looking for super aggressive just for good look with some concavity.

To fit XXR 527 18x9.75 +20, definitely gonna need to roll both front and rear, you'll also need to run negative camber, more or less depending on the tire size. Those XXRs are pretty aggressive setting, but look really nice if you don't mind a little stance

Not looking for super aggressive? those aren't the wheels for you.

don't want to roll fenders? those are DEFINITELY not the wheels for you.

You realize those are a MASSIVE downgrade over the stock wheels right? Forget the fact that you have a $35k+ car, wanting to put the cheapest possible wheels on it.

Well it's not necessarily the wheels being a downgrade...they look spectacular with the right setup, especially for those on a budget, like me. Lol it's hard to save enough to afford even XXRs! BUT, yes....way to aggressive for what your looking for sir.

The money you save buying XXRs will disappear when one fails and you have to spend it all and then some more on repairs. they might be the ****tiest wheels ever made....even Pep Boys won't sell them. I have even seen one that wasn't completely round and wouldn't hold air. Do you want that on a $30,000 car.....or any car for that matter?

Does anybody know if the faces of WORK VS-KF or SSR Vienna wheels will clear brembos without spacers?

I was interested in the rear wheels on this car, but does anyone know if they will clear brembos or not? If not, how much of a spacer will I need?
