Default Buying some 18" Volks from Gruppe-S

I want some GT-U's or some SE37K in 18 X 8.5

Do any of you know the correct offset for the STI? this might be a butchered question but I did a search and did not find it. I have seen a silver STi on here with Ce28N but they didn't look like they fit properly or maybe the car had to much wheel gap not sure but I want the car to Sit like Roberts Shaws WRX

The only VOLKs that fit properly (that I know of) are the ones that their pamphlet specifically calls out as fitting the Imp with brembo calipers. This just happens to be a 17"*8" (44mm offset). I would think that if any other of their wheels fit, that they would also call them out too. I do not know if any of their 18" fit though. I have these 17" TE37s on my STI.

Yes, the silver STI had CE37s, but they were like 37mm offset or something.

04 STi


I just bought some 18X7.5 LE28Ns with a +37 offset for my STi. Another guy on this forum has those exact same wheels on his car and he said they fit great. I haven't gotten the wheels yet but I'll let you know if they fit (they better!). Originally I couldn't find some LE28Ns so I was going to get GT-Ns. I talked to a Volk supplier and they told me that the correct size for those is 18X8 with a +43 offset. I know for a fact that a fair amount of people have 17" CE28N's on their STis, unfortunately, I know nothing about the GT-U.

I ordered a set of 17x8 ce28n with 44mm offset and they will fit the STi's Brembo for sure. Well, unless ours are different from the STis in Japan.

As far as I know, Volk GT-Us are not currently available in the US with the Subaru 5x100 bolt pattern (all the US vendors I've seen only have 5x114) ......you would have to have them specially imported and, even then, I'm not sure they're available in a size/offset suitable for the STi's Brembos.

These guys would know.........

According to rays' website, the only SE37Ks that fit the Impreza with Brembos is 17"x8" with either a +38 or +40 offset and 17"x8 1/2" with a +50 offset.
