wheel options!
 
Hi. I have a club spec 6 wrx which has still the stock 17s. Want to swap to new wheels. What size wheels will fit. Any info much appreciated.

Lots of other things you need to take into consideration...is your car lowered, what size tire do you wanna run, are your fenders rolled. I have an 06 as well all fendera rolled, and lowered on tanabe gf210 springs, and I have 17x8 48+ with 235/40/17 no rubbing. It's a great size just my .02

May we see a photo of the car please.

[B]235/40R17 is the JDM STi size and the widest tire[/B] that will fit on this vehicle with a stock ride height. I'd use an 8" wide wheel for this size.

Tirerack.com says that 225/40R18 will also fit. I'm running 225/45R17 on the same chassis which is the USDM STi size. You can use a 7 1/2" wide wheel for this size.

Like hawk_eye mentioned, if you've lowered your club spec 6 then these tire sizes may rub.

17x8 +48 is literally the perfect size for a GD Impreza.
