Please let me know if this link works for my 18 STI and will it clear the caliber?

Be careful changing the height of your sidewall, it will change the overall height of the wheel and may cause issues with the car. Your speedometer will be off for certain, but it may also affect ABS and traction control.

I just bought a set of these:

After speaking with the guys at Tire Rack and Discount Tire Direct, these were cheaper. Both places had wheels that they guaranteed to fit.
They should be here sometime this week, I'll post a few photos when I get them. I have a set of Subaru TPMS sensors I'm going to use on those wheels.

Starting to get closer to completing my winter wheel/tire setup. Got my wheels, TPMS sensors w/valve stems and lug nuts. Just have to pick out some tires now.....Not sure if I want to go with a good all season or an actual snow/ice tire yet though.



I got a set of Velox Apex wheels in 18"x8" with a 40mm offset from Discount Tire Direct. They seem to fit pretty good, they definitely clear the calipers with room to spare too.

They seem to stick out a little further than the stock wheels, but the guys I spoke with at DTD said I shouldn't have any issues (I hope they are right about that).
