Also dont know if they make it, but from that last pic it looks like a +45mm wheel will also clear the Brembos. Therefore sunking them in more and avoiding the fender. .02

STi - IMPREZA,
The only wheel you listed that has been "confirmed" fitment on the STi is the Gram Lights 57Pro = 18x8_ET40... (imminence) as seen here:



As for the Volk TE37's they don't offer a size of (18x7.5_ET43) for any type of car. So I would say these wheels won't fit. As shown here in there fitment guide: Volk TE37

On to the Volk LE37T's in a fitment of (18x8.5_ET40), I also was unable to find that size in there fitment guide shown here: Volk LE37T. With that said, again I would say these wheels won't fit either.

If you were to look on the first page you would of noticed under;

18" Wheels:

Volk GT-N = 18x7.5_ET37... (PhastM3)
Volk CE28N = 18x7.5_ET33... (Rayswheels website)
Volk CE28N = 18x8_ET38 & ET44... (Rayswheels website)
Volk CE28N = 18x8.5_ET40 & ET44... (Rayswheels website)

Additional Wheel Info:

(The fitment for the Volk LE28N's is the same as the Volk CE28N's, as it is the same wheel except with a polished lip.)

Who knows when/if they will ever make fitments. Being as 99% of the members don't deal with Volk, your best bet is to honestly contact a vendor that sells Volk (Z1auto, Gruppe-S, etc.) or maybe even contact the US distributor (Mackin Industries).

Just confirmed! 18x8.0 Volk GTC (faceI) +42 offset will not fit STI. Even though Gruppe S website indicated it will fit. I have the rims here and try to fit them on. It clears the brembo brakes but not enough studs to thread the lugnuts on. Btw, anyone else running GTCs on their WRXs? how much threads you guys have for th lugnuts? Thanks

did you use the lugnuts that came with the GT-C's? It's a tuner style lugnut. I had 18x7.5 GT-C on my WRX and never had problems with not having enough threads for the lugnuts. It was also a +50mm offset and I've test fitted them onto the STi and it barely clears by 3mm.

RoyBoy016, per Rayswheels website either offset will work. However, I personally would run the ET_44.

I just came back from the wheel shop, they said I needed a set of tuner lugnuts with a shank, meaning that it goes deeper after the taper part of the lugnuts, Well, sorry for the confusions, Volk GTCs 18x8.0 +42 offset face I wheel do fit the STI brembos, Sorry again. Thanks
