I actually prefer these Enkeis over the BBS wheels on the DGM and OBP cars. I just wish they sat a little wider but that's what these babies are for...

Perrin says to go with 15mm in the back and 20mm in the front to get ideal fitment like this:

Did you use extended bolts or the stockers?

for a wrx you have to do a minimum of 25mm or your wheels will not fit back in. If your using spacers that have built in studs like the ichiba v2. If you doing extended studs your fine with whatever. Reason being the STi wheels have notches in the back and the wrx wheels do not. So the wrx needs to go 25mm so their stock studs clear the spacer. If you understand what I am saying

You can see in the picture that the oem lugs and ichiba nuts are sticking out past the spacer. Therefore with a stock wrx wheel, the back of the wheel is most likely sitting on the lug and not the spacer, you just don't notice it. It's the same with the STi. You have to run a minimum of 25mm for it to sit flush against the spacer.

I'm pretty sure that's how it is, but if you could put your stock wheels on the car with the spacers attached and take a picture of the spacer, say from the middle of your wheel on the outside, you might see a very tiny space between your wheel and the spacer, which means you're not sitting flush against the spacer which is rather dangerous and could ruin your wheel and other internals.

What cmiller said was correct from what I'm aware.

Now on the flip side, I could be wrong. The notch in the back of the WRX wheel can be bigger then is stated or I thought. You may not have that gap and the wheel may clear the lug. I just don't think that's the case. Try to take that pic though so you can either find out: Im wrong, or you're driving your car pretty dangerously lol.

On the back of most wheels there are cutouts for spacers/adapters such as this. I can tell you with a 20mm that the OEM WRX wheels sit flush on the spacer from experience. On my aftermarket wheels I had to make modifications because my pockets on the back of the wheel were not large enough.

Sorry, I am absolutely positive that the wheels sit completely flush against the spacers. The stock wheels have suitable hollowed space between each lug mounting hole in the back side. Just wanted to add my 2 cents to the conversation about needing 25mm to clear. I am well versed in auto mechanics and auto body repair. Built my first V8 when I was in middle school. Maybe I'll take a better picture of fitment this weekend, gonna install front and rear sways w/end links (hopefully).

You and ocdpvw are correct, a 20mm will be fine. You don't need a 25mm to fit flush. There's cut outs in both WRX and STI wheels.

Gotcha, like I said, I could be wrong, just putting another opinion out there. I know that the STi BBS wheels, a 20mm spacer will not work. You have to do a 25mm or extended studs or else the back of the wheel will hit.

I'll be running some 25mm spacers on my stock STI BBS's for winter setup.

Also, you guys need to remember that there are different OEM sets of wheels for certain years. So I'm basing my info off of the BBS wheels, not the Enkei's. Apparently they are different.

I ran 20mm on my STI BBS and they worked just fine. Sat flush and everything.

With extended studs or? Do you have any pics of what it looked like?

I tried fitting a 20mm spacer and the back of the wheel hit the oem lugs because they stuck out too far.

I ran 15mm ichiba v2 spacers on my 2011 STi with the stock enkies and it was flush. That's the lowest you can go. But the enkies have a pretty decent cut out.

No, bolt on spacers. They didn't hit, everything was flush. I'm sure it was pretty close, it was a shallow cut out.

I don't have pics, haven't had those wheels in like 2 years.

You sure they were the BBS's and not the Enkeis?

I tested 20mm spacers and they hit.
