I thought if your wheels had tapered seats you didn't need hub centric rings?

I ordered the exact same wheel a few days ago. Thanks for posting yours, great to see it in a 17". Looks awesome.

No. They are pretty light at 19lbs for non forged. Youre going to pay nicely over 2g for new forged wheels. They are rather over hyped. Ive had quite a few different branded forged wheels. When something happens and it will eventually its usually not a matter of if, youll be sick. I had true forged chicanes on my 14 gt500, one got damaged beyond repair and i was sick having to spend 1200 for 1 new wheel. Actually i wanted to hurt someone. I didnt even have to hit a curb for it to be damaged on the face of the wheel for it to be not worth repairing. Granted volks are usually 850ish a piece, works are 550ish. You get the point. Id rather replace a 250-350 dollar a piece wheel then some stupid expensive wheel just for crusing around the street to look cool.

The yellows drop .80", I also have SPC's in the rear but in the end the same alignment specs as you.

Looks good but raising it a tad will go a long way.
im not sure how much i can say it went low .. but there's about a pinky gap in between. if i have no weight in the rear it doesn't rub, only when i have weight . front rubs on hard bumps.

Nope. Everything was fine. Drove on them all summer and did quite a few auto x and didn't have any issues.

I am going to be installing the HKS Hipermax GT IV coilovers this weekend and have been debating on the wheels to get for that flush look and is it super difficult for the STi. I have seen wheels such as Rota G-Force, Torques, Enkei Riajins, TSP6, and the SSR F-Force. Everyone seems to be running high offset and/or have a WRX so they don't have to worry about the brake calipers getting in the way (after all this searching, WRX owners are super lucky for a wider wheel choice selection). Can someone help me? I would love that concave look and don't want to run spacers, roll and pull the fenders such as the Enkei Raijins 18X9.5 +35mm I was going to get until I saw that 3mm spacers were required and that it might poke too much.



I would like to go +35mm for the concave look, do you know if it will clear the Brembo calipers?

I'm not sure but it also depends on the design of the spokes because I tried putting an 18 X 8.5 rims with +42 offset and it didn't clear the Brembo.

Okay, looks like there is some confusion with this thread because most of the aftermarket wheels being tried on here, are for '15 WRX's.

This is great, but those of us with '15 STI's are left in the dark. I calculate that going from a 55mm offset to a 35mm offset is approximately .79in.

I took a look at my brakes, the rear calipers have at least 1in of clearance on the stock 18in STI wheels. However, the front brake calipers may not even have .4 of an inch, which is 10mm.

Looks like if any of us STI owners that want to keep a stock suspension and do no modifications, but want a sporty and stylish wheel are going to have to pay $800 per wheel for some custom Volks or what not.

If anyone finds a wheel for the STI that is 18x8.5 +45mm offset, let me know?

The Mach V's are sweet, but those are 9.5" wide, I want to stick with 8.5" wide wheels, to use the same tire. I also like the 6 spoke wide star style that the Rota, Enkei, and Volk have.

Thanks!

Ok important question. You had no problem fitting coilovers with that wheel size? Im plan on getting fortune auto coils and they have an 85mm spring diameter and 52 mm shock body diameter. I just put on my wheels 18X9.5 +40 with 255's and it looks PREEEEETY damn close to the stock suspension. Im getting worried the coils wont fit with the wheels. Do you know what the spring or shock body diameter is on the ISC?

Sorry i do not know the diameter for them. They fit well not one single issue. the coilovers were half the size of the OEM suspension.

Ok ill call em tomo and see. Your right there half the oem size at the spring but the shock body where the tire would potentially come in contact is larger on coilovers.

You need to roll front and back or just rear?

Caliper clearance are not based on offset alone.

It's based on wheels style, spoke clearance, and wheels width.

We have 18x8.5 +48 offset clearing STI caliper.

But most of the wheels we carry are more higher price brand like WORK, WEDS, RAYS, ADVAN Etc.

Cheaper/replica wheels are not design well thus many people runs into problem with larger sti caliper.

Do you have any wheels in this specification resembling this style?

I'm looking to paint them bronze or gold, but if you have them that way to being with, all the better.

You will fit. I have 18x9.5 +45 and have to run a 5mm spacer to clear my ISC coils. It's close but it fits... I also have 265/35 tires

Yea i actually saw your post about that earlier in the thread. This is good news but fortune auto claims to have the largest shock body on the market so i just wanna make sure its not large enough to cause a problem. If i recall from your picture, it fits below the preload collar right?
