Default Looking for 1 thing: STi owner with TE-37 wheels.

I need some help. I've decided I want TE-37's for an STi. I will go with either a 17" or 18"whatever fits best. I want to order now but no shop will guarantee fitment for any TE-37. Shops suggest I find someone who has made the blind leap and tried them out because apparently TE-37 have different spoke designs if you look carefully, which could affect clearance on the calipers. Thanks.

essogas,
If you were to do a quick search of the member's name I posted next to TE37 under the Wheels that fit the STi list you would find this, here is a picture of wgknestrick's WRB STi with 17" TE37's (17x8_ET44):

Hope this helps,
Rick

Thanks for the chart.. I will ook at it but this IS more difficult than it appears. many people have been mislead by these charts. The consensus lately is that it must be tried on to be sure. Many, many charts have been wrong.

Its from RAYS website, the company that makes the wheels. I would feel comftorable buying a wheel that the manufacturer says fits. Especially if that manufacturer is RAYS.

FWIW.
