2.5 impreza

Question hub-centric spacers???

i just purchased some Rota Formels for my 01' impreza and a buddy of mine told me i should have hub-centric spacers before i put them on. I've called around to different performance shops and basically half of them said i need them and half said it's not nessary. has any one had any issues without using them or are the rota wheel made to fit directly up to the hub???
Any info would be a great help.

All the newer Rotas made for Subaru fitments are hub-centric, meaning the size of the hole in the wheel fits tightly on the hub of your car. You don't need hub rings, even if you had them you couldn't use them anyways. Most aftermarket wheels are designed to fit a variety of cars, so the center bore is drilled bigger and they send you hub rings to fit your application.
