The smaller rim is just going to make your brakes over heat faster

I've looked through this thread.. maybe i missed something.. I want to run a set of volk te37s 19x8.5.. also want a concave face, ideally TE37 ultra with a +45 offset. Will that work on the STI and clear the 6pot? I'm assuming they will since its been confirmed that rota grids at 18x8.5 +44 fits. Anyone has this same set up and can share some pics? TIA

Oh, and I'll be dropping the car with a strut and spring set up.. most likely bilsteins with swift springs. I don't want to have any rubbing and roll my fenders.

The 19x8.5 +45 TE37 Ultra clears your 2018+ STI 6Pot Brembos. But, with that size you will get a flat faced wheel (NOT Concave). The next step up if you want a concave face is the 19x9.5 +44 option. Which also clears the 2018+ STI 6Pot Brembos and you wont have to roll fenders either:

This car has the 19x9.5 +44 with concave face:


This car has the 19x8.5 +45 with flat face:

thanks for the info!

the face on this looks a bit more concave on this than the one you posted, maybe my eyes are decieving me.. Oh, any rubbing on that 19x9.5 with 255x35x19 tire set up? My drop is not going to be super agressive.

That link is not working, but some sites use generic photos of wheels. So cannot be sure. But the car I posted is known to have the 19x8.5 +45 spec installed.

And, no you will not have any rubbing with a 255/35 19x9.5 +44. I just checked with Rays those wheels currently are not in stock and would have to be Special Ordered. Please shoot me a PM if you are interested in getting a set ordered!

Would like to know if SSR GTV03 18X8.5 5X114.3 48MM will clear 6 pots on my '18.

Thanks in advance.

Anyone running 18x10?

Planning to buy 18x10 +39 offset on some 265/35/18 Michelin sport 4s. I have an ‘18 STI, will this set up clear the brembos and have no rubbing issues? Or 18x9.5 +38 is better? I will running on stock height for now and will be lowering in the future.

If you are referring to the 18x10.0 +39 Volk ZE40, then yes. Those do clear the 2018+ STI Brembos (disclaimer, they do NOT fit the 15-17 STI Brembos). That setup is 265/35 will rub when you are dropped. Possibly not at stock height, but I still wouldnt chance it.

Here is a pic of our STI with 18x10.0 +39 ZE40 255/35 AD08R. We had to roll the rear fenders mildly with those tires and dropped on HKS coilovers.

Thanks for sharing the picture! I ordered TE37 SL 18x10 +39. So you would recommend 255/35 instead?

You would gain extra clearance, yes. But you may still need to roll the fenders.

I ran into the same issue and had rubbing on the rear. Lowered on JRZ Coils, same wheel, and tire size.

This will be the case once the car is lowered correct? So no rubbing on stock height?

Looking for confirmation if Enkei RPF1s in an 18x10 +38 offset would fit in a 2018+ model year STi. Iíve seen a few posts on IG by @subimods that claim that they fit without rolling. What do you guys think?

Long shot, but do the 05-07 STI BBS wheels clear these brakes?

Also, looking at SSR GTV02 in 18x7.5 (any offset) or 18x8 (35mm offset) - Do either of these clear?

Thanks,
Richard.

Has anyone considered running RPF1's in 18x9 +35 in their '18+ STi?

I assume the 18x8.5 G Force didnt fit due to spoke clearance? Do you think it would clear with a 4mm spacer, making it an ET44 offset, like the other Rota's?

I know for sure at least Volk lists caliper fitments on their site under Size/Price for each wheel model.
