    2011 WRX Limited on its way

    Hi. I am new to this site and a soon to be the proud owner of a a new WRX. I am expecting delivery of my 2011 WRX Limited by months end. I am shopping for winter wheels and tires and I have a question no one at my dealership can answer. What is the factory wheel bolt pattern...5 x 100 or 5 x 114.3? And, will 16" wheels fit this car?

    Thanks for your insight.

    If it's not an STi then bolt pattern should be 5x100. Yes 16" should fit if it's not STi.

    Welcome BTW!

    I've been told by some that with the new wide body WRX, it now has the same bolt pattern as the STi? Thanks.

    Nope. The widebody has nothing to do with the wheels.

    The pattern is still 5x100 and 16"s will be completely fine, I have 16" steelies on my '11 with Blizzaks

    Yep, and plenty of us are running old WRX rims, which clear the brakes just fine! It took me awhile, but I found a set from a 2005 WRX that ended up costing me less than a set of steelies would have.
