Really like this wheel on the 2015 body style. So the size of the adapter is 20mm?

That wouldn't leave much lug to thread onto then.

I got the same wheels and was thinking of getting 20mm spacers. This looks perfect.

bolt on spacer.

adapter would imply a change of bolt pattern (hence...adapter).

right, as opposed to a bolt through spacer, thanks. I was just wondering about the "20mm offset" but I get what the OP meant now. 20mm spacer bolted on.

So it's a 35mm spacer to make it 20mm effective offset?

No the 2015 fits all the same wheels as the 2014 sti (and previous years). The spacers just even them out with the fender.
