Default 18" oz racing rims

Would these 08 WRX rims fit on my 2002 WRX w/o the need spaces. The guy say yes, but I generally think no.

Thanks,

Chris

Yes. Those are P1's. I've got a set of them on my wagon.

No. Why would you? They were made for the GC P1. They're not "'08 WRX rims."

What price? It says, "Looking to get best offer."

ok think he saying got offer for $850. So guessing I would need to match that number.. But having a 02 WRX.. I thought 17' rim was the sweet spot and going 18 adding to spin weight and ride would get alittle harsh.

I have the 18's on my MY02 sedan and it rides nice. Not harsh at all, and they fit.

Did you put on King Springs or something else to raise the car as it looks like the Before Springs picture shows the car sitting quite a bit lower than the After Springs picture (maybe the pictures were just reversed)?
