yeah dont seem to say the tyres, just budget performance.
says you can give him a call to see what other tyre options he has.

i stil find blackcircles.com to be pretty competitive in prices. especially if you have a family member who works for sainsburys cos you get a 10% off it too.


and thanks PETE!!
so only the 06-07 sti's are the 114's not the wrx's.

id the offset - lower the number the less the wheels sticks out? so a -+55 would stick out further than a +53?

cheers for that pete!!


sooo a oem wheel on a 06 wrx is +55..... so a +42 would risk rubbing the breaks and inner arches..


but then if you went up to a wheel width of 8, and had a +55 offset, then you could risk rubbing the outside of the arch..

bloody hell. lot of guffy working out to do here.


anyone out there got inovit stvi's on a newage already???!?! help! hehe

Re: wheel wonders...

Did you ever go for a new set of wheels ?

I'd like a new set but am having problems finding any to suit (i.e. 18's with 114.3x5 and correct offset). All the ones I see that are 114.3x5 and 18" are offset ET48, which I think means I would need spacers.

Re: wheel wonders...

hey stig,

i did indeed get some in the end. i got some Speedline Turinis in a size 18x8. the bolt pattern is 100 x 5 on mine as its a wrx.
the bonus on the speedlines is that fit on without the need for spigot rings.
not sure about the ofset but i think its et48.
i cant see it printed anywhere on the wheel.

have a look on scoobybits, revolution motorsport and also i scoobyworld have some.

the bonus there is that they'll help you out with the fitting, as theyre for ours! revoilution sort the rings out for u too...
