I have a 2006 WRX 2.5T in need of new wheels.
It has 17" rims fitted from new, which cost the earth to replace with Subaru rims.
Because of the size of the brake callipers I can't find any alloy supplier that has a 17" rim to fit.
Any suggestions.
Cheers

Personally I got 17x8 rpf1 wheels.

Thanks
You are correct but I can't get 17". I am in a smallish town in New Zealand, which doesnt help.
The rpf1 rims you mentioned do you have a make for that rim or a website I could find them on.
Just out of interest how deep are the callipers on your wrx mine are appox 55mm from the face of the disc to the outside of the calliper.

Hi kevin
I have found the RPf1 ( ENKEI)
I would still like to know what callipers are on your car.
Often when cars are sent to different countries they have different specs

Contact Compomotive, ask them if they have wheels to clear Subaru four piston calipers (or as appropriate for you). Likewise Enkei.

I used to have the 4/2pot Red Calipers which are the same as yours. Now I have the Gold Brembos from an STi. Those wheels will fit any braking system from the STi brembos down smaller.
