Hi just bought some new Rims for my 06 Sti , I know there is a rims fitment thread on here but I can't seem to find it on my phone, I have xxr 522 17x8 and I believe they are a 48mm offset, I have no clue if they will clear my brembos yet and I was just curious if anyone knows if they will work?!? I had no clue how much went into rims now with x factor and offset.... I don't understand any of it...... Any info would be greatly appreciated !

Thanks
Shane

Not to be a dick or anything but did you look at the sticky that was RIGHT next to the "NEW THREAD" button titled "Wheels that fit the STI"?

Nah I'm on a cell phone I can't see all the threads. I tried to find that one my buddy told me about it but apparently you need to be on a comp but thanks for the input I'll make sure next time I say I'm on a phone and can't see that I'll clarify .... Barney style so people can understand........
