these are not UK OEM rims they are the JDM/EDM stock STI rims which will clear the brembo's. They are the stock wheels that come on Japanese and European STI's. The UK stock WRX (UK OEM) rims are a 17" version of what we get here stock on the WRX and will not clear the brembo's. There is a difference between the two.

The Uk 17s will clear the OE Subaru 4 pots but not the Brembos of the STI.

vivid has them, but they sell them for a butt load... otherwise, keep an eye on the private classifieds, or check scoobynet.co.uk (if you wanna risk buying from the uk).

i think fourstarmotorsports in canada may also be able to get them...
