Impreza WRX STi TE-37 on 05 STi

I'm looking to order some TE-37's for my STi. I'm wondering if anyone has them yet, and knows if a 17x8.5 5x114.3 and +50 offset wheel will fit. Also, if anyone knows of a place with a good price on them, please let me know, I'm having a hell of a time finding them at a low price and in stock.

I don't think an 17x8.5 and a +50 will clear the brembos.

Hmm, I thought a +48 would fit, wouldnt +50 give a little more clearance, or is it the rim itself that wont clear them?

Impreza WRX STi

I bought them locally rather than mailorder, so I got hit for 2150 after taxes and shipping, and they are still 2 months out.

Volk TE37 = 18x8.5_ET50... (ScoobyPilot on imprezawrxsti.com)

Well I prey they will fit, but the nice thing is that if they dont, I dont pay for them. That's why I bought them locally and from a good shop.

I went with bronze simply because I just never really see bronze on blue, like to stick out in the croud. Pics are 2-3 months away, but I'll get em
