Only 04 STI @ 5x100 will fit -- NOT 5x114.5 (05+ STi).

5X100 is the bolt pattern.
05+ sti uses 5X114.3 so the BBS from the 05+ sti will not fit on the WRX.

As everyone above stated, the 05+ STIs will not fit, due to a change in the bolt pattern. The 04 STI's 17x7.5 will fit the WRXs however.

The JDM prior year BBS STi forged 17x8 5x100 +53mm offset will fit too....I know since I have them on my 07 wagon, shod with 225/45ZR17 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S tires.

I don't think you would lose your warranty for wheels. If you are nervous about it than ask them. But, there is like a 1% chance (probably less) where they will void your warranty. I see a lot more done in the handling department without ever voiding the warranty.

Not neccessarily "voiding" it but more of denying a claim.

Haha your warranty is denied for trying to pass off as a sti! hah j/k i was going to buy the wheels but you can get the same style wheel and color with a cheaper size tire for less. For some reason the sti stock rubbers are pricey

Naa, ill leave the badges on and all, i just love how the golden BBS's look on the black 07's. + the stock rubber is higher performance then the RE92s. And they are fairly readily available as they come stock on the STI. Also id feel like they would honor my warrenty claims much more with stock replacements then with aftermarket.
/rant haha.
