Default 06 WRX wheels will clear brembo's w/spacer & longer studs...

I just test fit my stock 06 WRX wheels over sti brembo's and they fit using a 5mm spacer (possibly a 3mm may even work) but will need longer wheel studs with that much of a spacer. The offset is +55 and they are Enkie MAT processed wheels. I hope this helps those out there looking for other options for winter wheels and those 06 owners wondering what kind of bigger brake options may fit.

All brembo clearing wheels will fit the WRX, but will all the old WRX fitment wheels clear the new 4-pots on the WRX? That's the real question.

I am looking into some wheels right now expecting that I will be getting a WRX in the next 4 mos. or so. I just wonder what will/should clear the red 4-pots.

I can't think of any wheels other than some 16" wheels that don't fit. The old stock WRX 16" rims do not fit without a spacer of some sort, nor do the 16" Rota Slipstreams.
