Ya smarta## thats what I'm telling you. Most show the 17x8.5's on an STi, but no one has said definatively if the 7.5's fit.

Yup, Boosted Wagon needed the 8.5's but he never tried the 7.5's on the Sti. He tried them originally on his old WRX Wagon which had AP Racing 4 pots in the front. The 8.5's work wonderfully on his Sti.
