2008 STI

Default 08 STi wheel question.

I need to get a set of 17" rims for my winter tires (215/45-17 Blizzaks). What do I need to look for to make sure that they fit and clear the brembos? I know the offset should be between +45-50mm but I don't know how to tell if they will really fit.

Alternatively, are there safe/reliable/cheap adapters out the to change to 5x100?

Any wheel that fit the 05-07 STI will fit the 08+ STI

Don't use adapters. They will push the wheels out way to far.
