Default 05 sti bbs on 13 sti

Looking to get the gold sti bbs on my 13 hatch. I know they are 17"s and mine are 18" but will they fit? If not I'm looking for a way to make my rims gold. I like the look.

How hard did you search?

Ae the bolt patterns the same?

Ae the brakes the same?

Thank you. 114.3... I wasn't sure about the brakes. Just worried because I'm going to buy them tomorrow but not worried anymore

You're going to lose 1/2" wheel width going with the 05 wheels (8.5" vs 8") which will limit the width of the tires you can run.

Another option is you could have your wheels painted gold.

It will limit tire sizes exactly....by 1 size or so.

Hes going down to a 17" wheel, which is also significantly lighter. There are zero cons to this mod.

Just looking for the gold wheel look. Looking to run the stock 225/45 r17 tire if I can. I will paint my stock rims if I can do it and make it last because I know they have the pressure sensors but going to buy these rims tomorrow
