    Need to get some all season rims and tires, but would like to keep it stock looking.
    Can those 18" 2013 STI rims go on a 2013 WRX?

    No. The lug pattern is incorrect.

    Nope. Only 04 sti wheels will fit. They have the 5x100 bolt pattern that wrx's do

    Guess its aftermarket 18's then...what are you all doing with the Tire Pressure monitoring system when you swap rims and wheels come autumn and spring?

    Me, nothing. My winters don't have TPMS sensors. The sensors have to be programmed by the dealer during each change over. And they do charge a fee. So it wasn't worth it to me. I check the tire pressure once a week anyway.

    The best option for you would be to get a set of 17" winter wheels & tires.

    I bought TPMS sensors for my winter wheels, but I've never actually ended up getting the car programmed for them because I don't feel like spending the dough twice a year. It will start to get expensive, especially when you can easily check pressures yourself with a tire gauge!

    I'm honestly not a big fan of most TPMS because they tend to give a lot of false alerts to the point where you start to just ignore them. I've found the Subaru system is actually pretty good, but I still don't feel like spending the dough to reprogram them twice a year.

    I live in SE VA, and I wont be driving in snow as my other car is a Hummer H3, but its overkill for a 70 mile round trip daily commute, so even though the WRX will be my good weather car, it does get cold here....during Dec, Jan, Feb it can go at or below freezing at night and early morning, but during the day its usually above freezing, so i was thinking all season.
