I need to know this for sure %100, no guess's. I'm about to spend $1400 for these if they fit and I can't return them.

Please Help asap! I saw one other thread that implied they may not fit...but specs are so close to stock with ET48 instead of 53... Don't want to waste time and money if they don't fit. Thanks for any help!
Anyone takers.... pictures would be awesome! I really need to know soon so I can make a deal or look for something different.

Try a 40 series tire between 235 and 255. You will need to do a little body work and some camber control.

what size tire do you wanna run? which wheel specs are you looking at? are you willing to do fender work?

doubt they do. spoke design and offset aren't ideal with those wheels.

what year? With a GR you will need to roll fenders unless you stretch tires.

on a 04-07....thats a lot of work, and still more stretching tires.

Thanks nhat. I sent you a PM about a couple more questions if you don't mind. Also, for anybody else that may know, I was told that the "A Disk" type would fit. I have no idea what they mean by "A disk". Anybody know?

245/40r18 with -3 deg of camber and rolled and pulled fenders front and back on a gr/gv. This was similar to many of the cars at sema 2010.

A-Disk is the standard Work 2-piece 3-piece disk.

The O-Disk has a smaller pad height and different shape to allow more lip but less caliper clearance at the same offset compared to the A-Disk.

The R-Disk has a larger pad height and different shape which means less lip and more caliper clearance at the same offset compared to the A-Disk.

The T-Disk (not available on all wheels) has an even larger pad height and different shape which makes the lip smaller and increases the caliper clearance at the same offset compared to the R-Disk.

Generally the A-Disk is enough to clear the STi brembos, assuming the offset isn't too high and the width is greater than 8.5"s.

These only apply to Work wheels, no other company uses this terminology.

(Disk = The face of the wheel, the spokes and the mounting surface to the hub). Aka. the center section of a 2 or 3 piece wheel.

Will Rota Grids 18's with a +38 offset clear the 2004 brembo's?

Looking at a few sets of 18's not sure what the offset needs to be to clear them.

can we get an updated list since this thread was started in 03? not posted in this thread since it will get buried, but i guess a new low offset wide wheel fitment sticky thread?

i have an 04 sti and would like to know my options for wheels that fit. i want at least an 18x9 and >+30 offset. im not trying to go hellaflush but i want an aggressive set up. ive seen a few sti's done this way so i know its possible, but i doubt it will be "easy".
