yeah the 4 pots didn't appear till later but i still believe they are 16's
205/50/16

also not sure it they are 16x6.5 or 16x7
they had the same brakes as the usdm wrx 289x24 - which don't clear 15" wheels

Ver. 4-5 maybe, but Ver.6 I'm pretty sure were the '00-'01 RS wheels, only in gold.

98 golds were V4-6. The 6 spokes never appeared on an STI
