WRX bolt pattern

hey all,

What is the bolt pattern on a 04 WRX?
Is it 100mm, or 114mm.

I am looking into a bigger brake package and trying to figure out if the STi Brembo package will fit.

hey slug1!
the bolt pattern for the 04 is 5x100....
as I recall... a local shop installed the brembo brakes from an STI into a WRX...
Straight forward replacement of the rotors and the stock 4 pot calipers to the Brembos...
Just make sure your mags have enough clearance( right offset ) for the calipers...
Hope this helps...

All WRXs have 5x100 pattern. The '04 STi has 5x100 and the '05+ STi has 5x114.3 pattern.

I almost positive you need larger rims too. The stock 16x6.5 rims won't clear.

That is correct. My rims will clear them, they are '01 RS rims 16x7 w/ a 52mm offset if I remember correctly.

If you are upgrading to STi Brembo's on a regular WRX all you need to do is make sure that your wheel will fit on a factory STi car.
The Brembo upgrade uses the factory STi components...so after the upgrade it is identical to the STi fitment.

I just got the STi Upgrade for my WRX. Brembo has it on special right now so I decided it was finally time. I bought factory STi wheels off of e-bay for $400 and it was perfect.
