Default STi aftermarket wheel news from Prodrive

From our good friends at Prodrive: the OZ Prodrive (aka P1) 18" x 7.5" ET53 wheel will not clear the Brembos on the STi!

They offer either the OZ Prodrive in ET46 (i.e. 46mm offset) or a new wheel, the lightweight 18" x 8" P-FF7 which is ET51.

Not sure of colors yet.

Try this (although it is small--a larger picture is in the spec sheet pdf) Black bug-eye STi with the PFF7

These wheels are nice but I think the 10-spoke stock BBS wheels are nicer!

Glad that we got the 10-spoke wheels

I think the issues with the stockers are:

* the stock tires won't last too long
* the stock tires may not be ideal for some locations where people choose all season high performance tires.

Certainly just buying different tires when they wear out is an option, but I intend to keep the stock wheels/tires for track use.

I may even try to get some of the heavy cast JDM current STi wheels to run my daily driver tires on. (and then another set for winter....)

I was kind of hoping the CG06D in British Black was going to fit. Prodrive lists 17 and 18 inch versions for the STi (GDB) on this page:

actually I believe the PFF7 is a cast version of the GC07 and also I think someone posted the weight a few months back and they were quite heavy...

how about this one

http://www.prodrive-japan.com/produc...rodutop_02.jpg

only comes in a 17x7.5 or 18x8 though

guess I'll just have to stick with the RCII's

I assume you're refering to the gold wheels on the white STI which are Volk CE28Ns or so I belive. They make a bunch of big brake friendly sizes for the Impreza, check here:
http://www.rayswheels.co.jp/cgi-bin/...odelName=CE28N

Not sure if the Brembos are taken into consideration on this page but it appears so.

The PFF7 weighs ~20.9 lbs. They're not as light as the forged GC-07, but since they only see street duty, I didn't mind saving ~$400 and gaining .5" in width.

those are the new Prodrive Japan rims... why would there be CE28N rims in the wheel section of the Prodrive Japan site?

My point was that 235 rubber will fit on the current car without much trouble so I'm assuming that the new one won't be much different. I just don't understand why the only rims you can get in 17x8 are Rays and 17x8.5 Advan or Rays

Check out this site for nice 18" STi by Rays Engineering - $563/each, and will clear the brembos, nice five spokers.

Creo,

Gorgeous car. That's my favorite wheel, actually, and on a car of my favorite color.

My lucky night!

I'd probably prefer the GC07 "just because," but they look the same in PFF7, so it matters not. (Mostly because I can afford neither right now, so...!....)
