Default STi Wheel Bolt Pattern

Anyone know off hand if the STi will keep the 5x100 bolt pattern? Also, anyone know what the offet is on these cars? I can't stand those Gold BBS wheels that come from the factory (I guess I'm a minority here) so replacement wheels gotta come with a quickness!

No problem going with an 18. I have a set of 18" HREs that are 5x100 currently, was wondering if I'll be able to swap em over to the STi Thanks.

I did do a search. As far as I could tell about the gunmetal, no one can confirm or deny that the wheels will come in that color. Excuse me for asking a specific question I couldn't find the answer for.

Zerin excuse Glenn he can be harsh but he is one of the best sources for info. However, once the car comes out we will have now more need for him. So forgive him as he knows we are going to make him into Solent Green.





















J/k Glenn I thank you for all the info.

Isn't the offset the space from the hub outward? How would that make it lowrider?

Lowrider look ... know those cars that have the 13" wheels that stick out way beyond the fender? Well thats basically what my wheels would look like on the STi with the 35 Offset.

Ahhh, I was looking at the offset bacwards. I was thinking a 35mm offset would be way inside the wheel well compared to a 53mm offset. Thanks.
