16" diameter by 7" wide, 5x100mm bolt pattern, +53mm offset are the magic numbers.

If the offset is too high you can use spacers but that is pretty much an impossibility on the Subarus. Sorry but those wheels will NOT fit Subarus, at least not correctly. Since the offset is too low, there is nothing that can be done safely to increase offset.

Were you at Ira Subaru? I saw a silver WRX there with those wheels in anthracite. Looked good, but when I got home I checked the Montegi website and none of the offered offsets are close to what the WRX needs. Plus, I think the wheels are not of good quality. The dealer wanted $2,495 for the wheels with Falken tires. Very good price, don't ya think?

IMPREZA GUY: I don't think it costs too much to have wheels powder coated. Give Powder Coating Solutions in Greenland, NH a call - 603.433.6886
I heard they do good work at reasonable prices.

Do not powder coat a wheel that has been heat treated. The heat used in powder coating creates a process called annealing which softens metal which has been heat treated to make it stronger. For non-heat treated wheels it is ok to powder coat
