Wheel offset on 13 wrx
I apologize for not doing a search on this first. What is the wheel offset on the 11-13 WRX? I'm assuming the bolt pattern is still the same at 5x114.3? Any help would be appreciated.

Dang, I forgot that the STi and WRX do not share the same specs. Thanks!

So here is another question. Would the stock 225/45/17 5x100 2004 STi BBS rims fit on my 13' WRX? I looked and they have the same offset, but I do not know enough about tires to know if that would be ok or not?

should be fine. tires are a little bit less wide. stock is 235/45/17 maybe the 04 STi runs 17 x 7.5? if not its a slight stretch.

Well I'd never recommend going with a smaller than OE tire, but technically it's not gonna kill you. It's a little under a half inch difference in OD so you're within the 3% rule, but again it's also about a half narrower too. I'd say if they come with those on them then run them out. When going new be sure to at least run the stock 235/45R17

I am just trying to keep my options open. I know the 04 STi and the WRX share the same wheel size. I wouldnt normally go from a 235 to a 225, but if i could find something cheap enough I would for winter.
I will check out Nasioc as that is where I got my winters on my STi.

Oh I thought they were coming with tires or something. Well for a winter tire a 225/50R17 would actually be better for you, so if you're only using em for that then roll with that option if you'd like, although they're prob pretty identical in price. It's more about what options are available in any given size. I def recommend at least a 235/45R17 for your all seasons though. Best of luck.

You can put 235/45R17 on the stock 04 STi wheels. The wheel is 0.5" narrower than the stock 09+ WRX wheel but the tire is still within spec on those tires. The vast majority of 235/45R17 tires are going to be spec'd for 7.5" to 9.0" of wheel width.

04 STi BBS wheels are very strong and light, but you will pay a premium for them because they're 5x100 and all the USDM WRX cars who want STi wheels can ONLY get them off the 04.
