Still, these are a step in the right direction over stock wheels.
┐Half inch wider?

As a props for Raceface, he is a good guy and this is a GREAT deal on a set of light 16 inch wide wheels, especially for people with the FHI 4-pots. I would grab these up in a second if I were anyone that didn't have an STi.

Yup. Should do. Hey Shawn, congrats on the new wheels. Although the new 4-pots are slightly different....it'd be worth a test fit anyways.

The 16x7 slipstreams don't fit the 4pots (check the following two threads)
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...els+clear+4pot
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...els+clear+4pot

Also, some more trivia -- the 18" Rota subzero's don't clear the 4POTS, while the 17" subzero's do:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...els+clear+4pot

Go figure. The 4POTS are actually "smaller" in diameter than the 02-05 2POTS, but they are "thicker" so that it is not so much the wheel diameter as it is the wheel spoke design.

... but bump for a FANTASTIC price for slipstreams esp. including splined lugnuts! All non-4pot, non-Sti subarus should jump at it!

I just finished searching and like Dendrobium wrote. The rims won't work.
bummer and to think I just convinced the boss (wife) I need some summer rims.


Good luck selling the rims.

Thanks for the bumps...especially Jamie!. Yes, these wheels will most definitely work with an '02 ts wagon.

Sorry, have been away for a few days. All PM's have been answered. The price is for all wheels...and splined nuts. No pix - we all know what SlipStreams look like...and they are in great shape.

Just want to say thanks to RaceFace - great seller, nice guy, good price, and the wheels are just as promised. He even took the time to help me make sure they would clear my wilwood front rotors (they did even better than the stock wheels...)

Now I just have to decide whether to stick with the RE92s from the stock wheels or bite the bullet and get better tires now. I'll probably either have stock wheels alone or stock wheels plus RE92s for sale soon.
