Default Offset between 03WRX stockers and 04STi BBS's

I was looking at my lowered WRX today and was really hoping that the 04 silver BBS's I just bought will stick out a little farther than my WRX wheels. Can anyone give me the offset for my WRX wheels and the BBS's? Or heak, does anyone have any befor and after pic's of WRXers to BBS's?

i have the STi BBS wheels w/ the RE070s. they definitely fill-up the wheel well when compared to the stockers...as in if seen from behind the car, the fender flares dont seem to "overhang" the wheels as much.

/\ I agree

The STi wheel is about as good as it gets for clearance. If you want the tire to stick out (and rub the fenders) start looking at lower offsets.

the rota fitment for our cars is a 48mm offset, and it doesn't rub =). a wider wheel base gets you better handling. I don't think anyone on here is looking for the ghetto hoopty gold 100 spokes sticking a foot outside the fender look

1. I hate MTV. and 2. I have a set of HR lowering springs on my car and the wheels look set way to far in now. I don't want the wheels to rub the fenders dorks. Just fill in the gaps a little better. 3. I loath MTV.
