    Question How big of a rim fits on the 2015 WRX?

    The reason I ask is I have someone with a set of Helo HE 851 20 x 10, 5 x 114.3/4.5 40 Offset and I'm wondering if they'd fit my car. (I know 20" on my WRX doesn't make much sense but the price is almost free). If so what is a good size of rubber for the rim?

    St. Louis Metro East, on the Illinois side, but not the really bad Illinois side, but also not the really good side.

    Unless you raise the car higher it will not fit
    Or some ridiculously big spacers maybe to push the wheel away from the struts

    just because its free, doesn't make it a good idea. take them, resell them, take that $ and get something more suited towards your car.

    20's? i agree with rich. sell them or trade for a decent set of winter tires or wheel/tire combo. besides, that big of a wheel would absolutely wreck the purpose of the wonderfully redesigned new suspension. it would drive/ride like poo lol


    edit. since im clueless anyway isnt the bolt circle still 5-100mm on the 15s or did they make it a bit bigger?

    The 15s have a 5-114.3 bolt pattern. Just like the sti now. Regardless...putting 20's on a wrx would be a horrible idea.

    Pictures of the wheel in question. Personally, even if they were't too big, I don't think these would look good at all. They belong on a Escalade or a Box Chevy.

    Those look like truck wheels. They will look disgusting on the WRX.
