Default 2017 STI BBS on 05-07 STI GD

  1. Does anyone have any images of 2017 STI BBS on a 05-07 STI GD?
  2. I currently restricted to bed right now so do they clear everything or are spacers required?


    Thanks in advance for helping while I'm down and planning.

I was going to copy you and get them since they're so cheap right now/all the new guys get massive wheels with tire stickers now, but changed my mind after seeing how insanely heavy they are.

For my scenario they'd be adding around 34lb-36lbs of unsprung weight which is nuts.

It's a shame the newer cars get heavier/bigger with no substantial increased performance to match.

For my GR I got the OEM BBS from the Evo X, and had them powder-coated BBS gold! Oem enkei's were 23lbs, where as the evo BBS wheels are 19lbs (forged). You have to run shank lugs, but otherwise, its a nice upgrade, and they are 18x8.5 et38, so it's stock sti size, but with a better offset.
