Does anybody on here know if there are places who fills rims in and re drill to a different bolt pattern?! I have a set of volk te37's 17x7.5 +38 4x100 and would rather pay the money to get them re done than fork out another $2500+ just to get 5x100 in the same specs

You know I posted pics of these wheels when they arrived, when they were put on this car and now with the car washed. Seriously specs and everyting were also posted. No point in ignoring the info in this thread, it might prove valuable and save you from future costs like for example tpms sensors.

Default Very nice wheels!

I really like what you have done with your new wheels. I plan on going with a five door Sport with the nice factory wheels but refinished in a nice brushed aluminium or titanium color. What do you think?

that would work, If you do it correct they should come out pretty awesome.
Requires a bit more work but damn they are sweet, after my oems start looking like crap then it will be time to paint them something nice.

for sexypants,

so normally one would use a hub adaptor to fit a 4x100 onto a 5x100
I asked the shop if you could fill the holes in the rim and then redrill them and they said no. the hub option is dicey as that would be added stress on the wheel hubs dunno if I would take that risk if I could find an adaptor.

theoretically I was thinking
remove paint from wheels, pour molten metal into holes and wait for it to cool and harden, then redrill holes. Of course doing this would work out to the wheel being weaker
and compromised since the wheels were cast from a mold.

Bottomline looks like you might need to sell the expensive wheel set and buy a new compatible one. sowwy

Thankbyou for the info!
I had a feeling thats wat it was gonna come down to that in the end. I would not try to find an adapter for a 4 lug on our 5 lug cars. Be to funky! Lol.

Well guess ima have to let them go than kinda sucks but oh well.

I will be purchasing the sparco wheels next week tho!

I posted it to the 12-13 thread, but no responses..

When you search 12/13 Impreza onto Tire Rack, no BBS show up. But if you search 13 BRZ on Tire Rack, they do. Any idea why? I was considering getting a new set.

In relation, I am picking up a set of 17" BBS RK's ( I think RK's) from a friend this weekend. Putting my stock Yoko's on them for now. Then, using them as winters when I get new, good aftermarkets.

In addition, I will thus be selling my stock 13 Sport wheels. 2,500 on them.

i have no idea why tirerack does this or that, maybe something is up with how the data was entered into their computer. Maybe they figure they are too expensive yet they do offer the oz which are priced higher. As long as the imp has the same hub diameter and etc I would assume you are fine, perhaps they might rub a little dunno too many variables for me to figure out what goes through a corporations head. When I input the sti i do not see the bbs, when i input the wrx i see bbs. I would say contact luke @ tirerack and ask him why.

Sti is 5 x 114.5 or something like that. the rest are 5 x 100
