    wheels fitment question

    Hey guys, I'm pretty noob with knowing if a rim will fit so I could use some help here. I'm about to buy some rota grids to put on my stock summer tires for when summer comes back. Could someone let me know if these will fit on the 13 sedan wrx?

    17x7.5 Rota Grid - Royal Black(5x100/e48/56.1) Wheeldude.com - Professional wheel dealer.

    Thank you!

    That link is confusing because it says "Royal Black(5x100/e48/56.1)" right in the link, which would fit...

    ...but then when you click on the page, under details it says:
    "Product Details:
    Wheel Style - Rota Grid
    Wheel Diameter (Inches) - 17"
    Wheel Width (Inches) - 7.5"
    PCD Bolt Pattern - 5x114.3
    Offset - 45mm
    Hub Bore - 73mm
    Color - Royal Black"

    so I don't know which wheels that link is for. My best advice would be to email wheeldude and ask.

    FYI the bolt pattern for a WRX is 5x100 and for an STi it's 5x114.3 stock offset is 53 IIRC, so you'll want to stay as close to that as you can.

    Thats the direct link from the page which is weird. So If the bolt pattern is 5x100 these wont have fitment issues? I will email them and clarify but thanks for the help i appreciate it!

    Yes, if they're 5x100 you'll be fine.

    DO NOT get them if they're 5x114.3 as they will not fit.

    Yes, that is true, but in the pics of it, it's only one. So I wouldn't buy them in hopes that it has both.

    yes 5x100 is what a wrx needs. also you can fit up to 265 without rolling fenders i believe so a 9-9.5 in rim should fit. im planning on putting a 18x9.5 with a 255 wide on my car
