Can anyone confirm that work Kiwami 18x9.5 +38 will clear the 2018 STI brake calipers?

Thanks in advance!

I've seen them on cars in a few places, can't remember where.

From what I remember you need at least an 8mm spacer in the front. (Very close still)
I'd go 10mm to be safe.

2019 STI- Enkei Ts-10 18x 9.5 + 38MM Will 255/35/18 fit?

According to Subimods (vendor I bought wheels from) they should clear brembos. Haven't decided if i'll go stock suspension or get springs again.
Stock I should be good no rub?

Has anyone fit 19x10.5 +17 on 2018+ Brembos?

My Evo X was totaled before the Work Meister S1 3P's in 19x10.5 +17F/+10R came in, and now that they've arrived I really don't want to get rid of them, they'd look so good on my 2019 DGM STi. Thanks

I found what seems to be a pretty good deal near me. Enkei Raijin 18x8 +45 with 245/40R18 Dunlop Winter Sport 4D XL tires that probably have another season left and TPMS for $1,300. I see most guys here running 8.5" wide rims with winters. Anything negative going 8" wide with this setup on my 2019 STI? Thanks in advance!

Narrower tires are preferred in winter as they can plow through the snow easier as opposed to wider tires which tend to float on top of the snow. Get my drift? lame dad joke there.

The 8.5" is the same width as stock with only 5mm different offset that pushes the wheel away from the strut. Shouldn't be a problem.

I'm considering that exact wheel to mount some Michelin A/S 3+ tires on for the upcoming cooler months. I'm not willing to give up steering crispness/precision by dropping down to 8" wide wheels even for the winter duty setup.

Tires are already ordered (Tire Rack), got my order in yesterday before the $100 offer for 18" and up sizes expires (tomorrow).

It's a good-looking wheel. Not *too* fancy. Just right. I favor it in the polished aluminum rather than painted. My old Evo X was white like my STI and had 18" aluminum rims and to my eyes the combo was sweet.

They're also a lot lighter than the stock rims.

The stock 19s are just *too* much to my eye. And are very heavy.

I'm personally considering "downgrading" to 18" rims with ultra-high performance all season for year-round driving.

Hey guys. Looking at picking up a set of 2019 wrx premium wheels for my winters on a 2018 sti. I have seen that the 15-17 wrx wheels fit but have the 2019s been confirmed yet?

Went with Raijin 18x8.5, +50, in the silver. With the OE wheels already a dark grey I could have gone with either that or black so I let her cast the deciding vote. She's way better at co-ordinating colors than I am anyway . . .

I might well have gone with the gunmetal version if that color had been available in 8.5" wide, but I wasn't about to give up any steering feel or cornering stiffness just for a closer to OE color match.

They're supposed to be here tomorrow. The tires came yesterday. My tire guy will get them two at a time (loose) as soon as I can get them there, if only so I can turn two big stacks of car goodies into just one.

You are never going to notice that 1/2 inch.

I picked up a similar design for a fraction of the price of the enkeiís. These are my winter setup.

I got a set of Velox Apex rims 18X8. +40

Goodyear eagle sport A/S 245-40-18

They are very responsive.

Actually I already have noticed the differences that a 1/2" change in rim width can make. Being a direct A-B comparison did make it more noticeable, but since the tires were swapped directly from the wider rims to the narrower set that eliminates the tires as being what caused the changes. This was on the LGT we had up until last February, 8" to 7.5" for our "cold season" tire set.

I get that most people aren't going to notice, and as time goes by I may lose the ability to as well.

I suppose Iím just in the boat of not wanting to spend Texa$$ on a set of winter rims. I got those for 412 bucks for the set. Iíll take that minor performance hit.

But like you I didnít want some sloshy winter tires. So this was a good compromise.

Nice looking wheels. How much do they weight and are they rotary forged too?

I honestly donít know if they are forged (unless they stamp something on the wheel). They weigh 21 lbs. Couldnít really dig up any detailed specs but for 412 bucks I figured Iíd give them a shot.

Iíve actually grown to really like them for a cheap rim.
