Question Will a 2001 oem rs wheel fit an 03 rs??

Does anyone know if the brakes in the 03 maybe to big for the 01 rim?
Are they same rim?

Thanks

Jonathan

yup even check on subaruwrxparts.com, if you buy the 00-01 RS wheels it even says in the description that they fit over 4-POT brakes, which the stock 02-03 WRX/RS wheels do not.

but if you want to continue to not believe anyone thats fine too.

check it out for yourself:
