    2015 WRX STI Stock Wheel Fitment

    Hi,
    I'm buying my son new wheels for his 2015 WRX STI, he wants the stock size and fitment (not sticking out of the car).
    Can someone help me with the offset measurement that I would need to buy.

    Thank you,
    Jim

    Itll vary by wheel.
    The Anti-N00b. Use "Search", YES, you need a tune. NO, you don't need a BOV. Don't try to make you car shoot fire, and change your freaking oil.

    I believe they all have +55 offset from the factory.

    Yeah, I meant more specifically, it would vary by which wheel they wanted to put on the car.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm reasonably sure there were only two wheel options Dez: base Enkeis and limited BBS (three if you count the gold vs. Gunmetal BBS). Both wheel options are 18x8.5 with +55.

    Jim, welcome to the forums! Your son is correct to want the OEM fitment -- sounds like a smart lad. IMO you should look for a wheel between +45 and +55 offset and 18" diameter with 8.5" width. The bolt pattern is 5x114.3. I would stay away from wheels with dual patterns. Generally, the lighter the wheel the better to an extent. Many lightweight wheels are nearly as strong as OEM while providing the benefit of reduced rotational mass.

    OP, how wide of a tire do you plan on running? Will you go wider in the future?

    Stock sizes. Basically summer and winter tires.

    anyone have any experience with TSW wheels, am also going to search it but figured I would ask while i'm posting.

    I've seen up to a +35 offset with OEM tire without rubbing the fender.

    So, anywhere between +55 and +35 offset and you are golden.

    My wife has TSW wheels on her 2008 Rogue since new. But there is a lot of sidewall on the tires. Get the ones that are rotary forged with an "RF" next to their names...like Interlagos, Nurburgring, etc. May as well lose some weight while you are at it.

    There are a ton of wheels on tire rack and you don't have to figure out fitment if you are staying with oem size tire and not running big brakes. That is where I got mine.

    I plan to run an 18x8.5 +47 with stock tires for now. I will search for a different tire once I have worn these out.
