    different wheel size

    quick question.
    I have stock tires/wheels on my 2014 wrx. which is 17x7.5 5x100 ect
    im looking at these Rota Grind Wheels and they are 18x8.5 5x100 e+45

    would they fit on my stock tires? do if I want to purchase new wheels with stock tires I have to look for the 17x7.5 size ?

    Yes you will need new tires! You can't fit 17" tires on an 18" wheel!

    that's what I figured. so as long as I find new wheels with the 17x7.5 I should be good?

    If you wanted to keep the tires you currently have on your stock wheels, then yes.
