What you're really asking is...

1. Will they clear the Brembo's?
2. Will the offset work?

Dunno, call them.

Will they clear the Brembo's/Will the offset work? Both questions can be summed into one question... Will this wheel fit my car?

You just made yourself look stupid.

Any good answers would be greatly appreciated.

Hey, you're the one asking stupid questions, no need to be an ass about it.

UltimateLurker has the right idea, call them.

The size definitely will fit a 05 STi

In fact, that is the exact same spec as the wheels I'm currently running on.

^ Thank you Crystal STi. All I was looking for was an answer.

BTW this forum would be non-existent if everyone asked questions to vendors. People come here to ask questions to the Subaru community. I'm an Admin at other forums. I get tired of the people with lame answers when people ask questions. Questions deserve answers not other alternatives to guide that person to find answers.

Just because that is the same size as you run does not necessarily mean they will fit. Spoke design and clearance is a major issue with the Brembos. Chances are they will fit, but without preceise measurement or actual fitting it is difficult to tell.

You've been around long enough to realize how stupid your question was.

HINT: Research. You can read, can't you?

^Assumption is the mother of all F ups! I did research, A LOT! There are only two people on this forum who own this wheel. Since there is VERY limited information on this specific wheel on NASIOC I decided to look else where. That also led me nowhere. Maybe the best question to fit my needs is....

Will the 42 Offset "hurt" my 2005 STi?

Personally talking smack to someone you can't even touch is too much drama.

Offset by itself means nothing, neither does width, diameter, or make/model. My suggestion, with so little information available, is that you find a local distributor and do a test-fit yourself, or make a deal with whom you're ordering them from that you may send them back if they don't work.
