Default What wheels will fit on Brembo GT big brake kit

Hey all,

I've got on 02 wrx with the Brembo GT kit and am currently riding on Technomagnesio Indianapolis in 17" x 7" wheels. However, these are my winter wheels now and I want to get something nicer for summer. Does anybody have or know what wheels will fit on these brakes. They're 328mm with the lotus caliper. I asked subydude and he said the SDR and Tarmac II, but I don't want either of those. I asked TireRack and they gave me a list of cheap heavy wheels or ridiculously expensive wheels that I can't afford. I don't really want to go with 18's either.

Thanks

Your brake choice necessarily limits your wheel choices.

I think Subydude has some for sale already, but I could be wrong. I will definitely look into that. I assume your referring to the Tarmac II's.

Cool thanks for the reply. Where did you get yours and what size tires do you have. I have an extra set of Falken Azenis in 225/45 17 that I want to mount on my new wheels.

Sorry to bring an old thread up but I drive a JDM GC8 and just bought a set of Sti Gold brembo's (don't know how they are different from the Brembo GT kit) - I am looking at a set of 17" SSR GT1 right now and was wondering if they will fit as you had mentioned about them in your post. Thanks.
