The spacers don't come with studs. I'll be replacing my stock studs with ARP studs.

I follow what you are saying about the space behind the wheels but not all hubcentric spacers have the embedded studs especially the smaller spacers so I don't think that is a concern in this case. He was getting 10mm spacers with extended arp studs so he should be all set.

You weren't the only one.


The embedded-stud kind, which I'm familiar with as bolt circle adapters and wasn't even thinking of here, bring with them the disadvantage of making it impossible to check hub side lugnut torque without removing the wheel. Then you get to going through the "torque the wheel side nuts, drive it a bit, and retorque those" drill. Doesn't seem worth the hassle for anything other than a trailered show car, given that lug nuts can and will loosen in service.

Should be a hard no for any car that gets driven hard.

Okay good lol

Yea these spacers won't have studs. I currently have 20mm spacers with the studs on there and they're torqued very well and checked before every track event i do.

When i get my RPF1's i'll be using the ARP extended studs.

anyone run 255/35/18 on 19 STI?

I know stock is 245/35/19, and with the wider wheel, but smaller rims, not sure if it will look like a lifted truck on stock suspension. I'm trying to use the same set up on my old WRX on the STI.

I think 255/40/18 is a closer fit. It is about 1% larger than stock. The 255/35/18 is almost 3% smaller.

I am curious about this as well. I am considering 255/35/19 for my 19 STI. The diameter is slightly larger than stock, but I am hoping not too much. There are more tire options in this size.

MM10 - only about 7 mm larger on the diameter.

About half of that shows up as reduced tire to fender gap. The other half ends up being about 1/8" worth of greater ride height (think sill to ground here).

I totally missed that. Been almost 20 years since I worked with BMW measuring rideheight. The wider slightly larger wheel could help me as I barely have clearance to get into my drive way. A few mm would help a lot.

Agreed on the 255/40. If you want a 35 series then do a 265/35/18. Pretty popular size on this chassis.

Those 255-18's will be about 0.8" shorter than the OE 245-19's (per specs page for Michelin PS4S tires over on Tire Rack, other tire models would be similar).

0.4" more tire to fender gap, 0.4" less ground clearance.

I created my own thread for this question but how badly does a +38 offset on a '15+ car as in stress on wheel bearings and affect the handling for dailyish driving? I'm not tracking and only occasionally throw it around in the corners but don't want to void my CPO warranty and don't want it to be less reliable.

Just bought new wheels for my 19 sti. Wedsport 18x9.5 +38. I'm starting to wonder if they are going to fit without rolling finders. 265/35/18 tires. Im lowered on FA 500's 9k swift springs. -2.5 front camber -1.8 in the rear

Im currently on 18x9.5 +42, 265 35 tires and do not rub anywhere. Just not flush enough for me witch is why I bought the new +38 wheels. Fingers crossed everything fits

Default Report of a nice fit

Installed 4 MachV Crucial rims (gloss black) on my 2019. Stock suspension.
Tires : Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ in 265/35-18 from Tire Rack. OEM TPMS units.

Done at Mach V motorsports in Sterling VA.

Flawless install. Not a mark. Perfect stance.

Car feels a LOT nicer at 18"...same feel but no harshness, so only better. Tires turn in better than the V105 yokoham oem tires. Noise is less (those had 1500 miles only). Looks of the set up: awesome.

Net loss per corner: 5.5 pounds.


Highly recommended. Great shop. Great wheel. And the tires are awesome. Note, have had a lot of time on track in a prior high HP car and can say that the car now feels like a 996 with custom kw3 corner balancing and hollow bbs wheels with top tier rubber. Could not say a nicer thing about the car's handling. Subaru got this car right. They should sell these wheels and these tires with the car stock. (that would kill the aftermarket though).

Yea, figuring Im probably not going to get away without rolling finders. Have a friend with very similar setup but running a 275 tire. He has rear finder rolled completely flat. no rub

Current set up: FYI these wheels/tires are for sale. Practically brand new, 300 miles at the most. Not a mark on them. Forged monoblock 19lbs each 18x9.5

Lost of 5.5 pounds per corner. Drives amazingly well. No rub. Smoother ride with better turn in.... amazing shop too (Mach V). I was very impressed by the staff and Dan the owner was superb. My first time there after some mail order things and it was a great experience. He has a lot of subaru wheels in the store to look at too as hands on is important.

I am looking at the O.Z. Racing Alleggerita HLT 18x8.5et55 wheels. Tire rack says they fit my 2019 WRX STI. I have found a few posts about these wheels, but non specific about the 2019. I am about 99% sure they fit. Looking for confirmation from someone who has them.

Can't find many vendors for O.Z. Racing. I am trying to get them in Matt Graphite or the Titanium Tech. Tire Rack has a lot of the colors but not these.
