Default Will 2016 WRX sport package wheels (15 spoke Enkeis) clear BBK?

As the title says, will the black Enkei wheels from the 2016 sport package clear the 4 piston BBS found on the STI model? These are the 18x8.5+55 spec. Thx!

Default Will 2016 WRX sport package wheels (15 spoke Enkeis) clear BBK?

I literally just bought a mint set of these off craigslist. Some guy had them in his basement for two years, never used. Is the only way to tell by putting them on an STI or will any of the info stamped on the back of the wheel help you? I have a wrx so i cant help you there...

Edit: whoops sorry mine are the 17s from 2015... please disregard

Brembo website has a template (dimensions) you can print and cut out then test fit in your wheel

Unfortunately, I don't own these wheels. I am considering buying them. However, I think I found my answer by doing a lot of Google Image searching. It seems these wheels will clear the 4 pot calipers based on seeing a photo of them installed on an STi.

take the cut out with you when you have a look

Don't believe the internet - possibly have spacers, although the previous version does clear brembos
