Default Wheels for 2011 Impreza 2011 2.5i

Hi everyone,

It has 16" steel stock wheels and I want to leave these for winter.
What 17" wheels/tires will fit and would you recommend for summer?
I see here people talking about Rota wheels. Would they fit? What else?
What about 18" wheels?

Thanks in advance...

lots of choices.... just select like a wrx and you'll be fine... most 17x7.5 or 17x8 and easily fit on your car.

keep in mind... if the wheel is VERY heavy, you'll feel it and might feel your car is slower.

rota are used a lot cause it's a good wheel / decent pricing.....

Thanks Robin. Any Canadian sites with good prices? Or just look around in the Toronto area?

it depends... check on toronto-subaru-club site.. they have a few local sponsors on there.... but for certain brands, check in nasioc vendor section. lots of choices.

most guys in ottawa, have the tires/wheels shipped to Odgensburg NY and we drive over to pick it up.

i'm looking for myself for track wheels...

it all depends on what you want to spend for wheels.

instead of wasting money on 04 bbs I'd rather buy a wheel wider than 7.5"....

Congrats on the new car. I am wanting to pick one up myself but I really want rally blue version. It seems that rally blue is a frequent color for 2.5i's in Canada. Does anyone know if it is possible to get rally blue in America other than buying and repainting? I have looked online and can only find Canada versions for sale. Thanks in advance!
