awww then I guess the issue is that the 16x7 doesn't clear 4-pots.

If these are around when I'm ready to upgrade in a couple of years, I'll get a set in 17x7.5 for sure.

Those are sick. Would be a nice way to remind my 2012 impreza where it came from.

16 and 17 are listed for 2006 WRX at Tire Rack, so they clear.

For a while the Tire Rack website was difficult to see 16s with 06/07 you had to choose a winter package and 16" tires, then it would show you the 16s that would fit. This is likely the source of confusion earlier.

@Luke... anyway to get 15x6-6.5 of these and check if they fit over 2006 WRX 4-pots?

At $129 a pop, 15x6-6.5 would be a perfect rallyx wheel for me: cheaper/lighter than the Team Dynamics (which are real rally worthy, but I don't need that much toughness on rallyx) and would allow me to run rally tires (or used rally tires).

I'm finding that 16 is still too big... finding rally tires in this size is near impossible.

EDIT: corrected wheel size info

I believe Terra only comes in 16" & 17".

Sparco Pista comes in 15x6.5 +35 that fits 2012+ Impreza 2.0... not sure if clears 06-07 WRX 4-pot though.

Yeah as listed on tire Rack. But I did happen to see Sparco Terra in 15" else where (different car, wrong offset). So I was hoping its just a matter of tirerack special ordering them.

But heck I'll take those Pista's too!

I'm just about to give up and slap on a new set of 16's in the 6-spokes ingot off fendy.

No. 15's will clear impreza brakes, but only very specific 15's clear ANY wrx brakes. Braid, Team Dynamics, enkei RCG4 and speedlines.

I remember there was a 15" Sport Edition wheel (forgot which model) that clears Subaru 4-pot.

*Sport Edition E3* discontinued.

You get my point, the list is very short .

Any 15" wheel that doesn't have a drop center should clear....but again, there aren't many of those.

Don't think the Terra clears Brembos. Sparco Drift does.
