These will fit. I ran them on my 08 STI, but I bent two of them in one winter.

Default 16" for 2011 STI Sedan

I doubt there is a 16" that would work, but I think it would be cool if there was one.
This was exactly my question too - I HAVE A SET OF 16"X7" +45MM Offset OZ rims with 5 x 114.3 mm Bolt pattern with Snows from my 98 Eclipse GS-T That I was hoping to use on my STI just in case I had to drive it over the winter.

I guess the only way for me to know is to try it out then. Unless someone from Tirerack can confirm...Please.

The OEM on the 2011 STI Limited I have is a BBS 18" x8.5" +55 (according to stamp on rim?) 5 x 114.3 bolt pattern. using 245/40 R18


Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

I can't find any confirmation that the Stock/OEM 17" 2005 STi wheels will work on a 2011 STI. Does anyone know this for certain?
Thanks.

So do we have an answer to what the smallest diameter, narrowest alloy wheel with a decently close-to-stock offset for the 2011 STI Sedan is? Preferably the most inexpensive as well

I'm running Rota SDX 17x7.5 ET45 wheels ~$650
might not be narrowest but they let you run 205 tires which I think are perfect for winter.

honda cr-v wheels would be ideal for that tire size.

from a quick search, you'll probably need a 15mm spacer to clear the calipers.

yay if they're identical to the rota torques in the same specs.

you'll need a spacer, there's no way a 16" wheel will clear the calipers.

the next best option would be the oem bbs wheels from an 05-07 sti.

The bolt pattern is the same, and the offset should be close enough, the question is will they fit over the Brembo's. If you do a test fit, let us know here so others will be able to find out.

Going on the information here, I assume 2009/2010 stockers wouldn't fit over Brembos, would they? 17x7 ET55...

does anyone know if 17x8 TE37c +38 will clear a brembo? I bought a set for my GC8. I see that the +44 will clear it, so does that mean that the +38 will as well? Thank you

I can confirm that 2005+ Acura RSX wheels will fit and clear the 2011 STi sedan brembos with a 5mm spacer.

I'm wondering if the XXR 521 18x8.5 et40 will fit over my 04 STI's Brembo's. Maybe I'll just need 5mm or 10mm spacers?? I'm in a bind and need new wheels pronto, so if anyone could help me out that would be awesome.
