    With the right offset an 8.5" wheel will fit just fine. I would say mid 40* offset would be perfect

    well, your factory wheels are 17x8 w +53mm offset. Check out this wheel size caculator and it might help you. With the sti style wider body you can actually go pretty far in the width category.

    Hey mangostick, I'm pretty sure the WRX and STi had the same wide body style in 2011 ans 2012 (at least, that's what I've read a bunch of places). Shouldn't any wheel width that fits on the STi also fit on the WRX?
