First off thank you in advance.

I recently purchased a 19 sti. With the cold season approaching I want to get a winter set up.
I found these online at a good price and I was curious if they would fit.

American Racing model AR91388512740.

18x8.5 40mm. Picture linked is the rest if the specs.

Thank you again!

The bolt pattern is incomprehensible. I'd buy wheels from someone who states the specifications using SI units with the exception of the ⌀, though for the record I would welcome a full conversion to mm there too (I remember Peugeot and Renault used to do this but that was a long time ago and nowadays we are stuck describing wheels and to a lesser extent woofers with nonsense units still).

I don't think you are the target audience there. For whom are the wheels actually intended? Some sort of US econobox rather than an import? IDK.

After looking more I am just gonna order a brand new set from tire rack.
Not worth saving a few bucks. Rather have a peace of mind they work.

Spiro -- you know I prefer the Metric system to Imperial units as much as the next person, but 5x114.3 was originally specified as 5 x 4.5" so I understand this even if it is not to modern interpretation.I suppose it was chosen as such to appeal to the "American Racing" brand name. A bit silly since offset is still in Metric.

OP, yes they will FIT, though the offset seems too low.

I was just wondering what size and offset you were going to get ? I also just picked up a 19 STI and want another set for winter (Chicago winter fun) thanks

Forsure I’m looking at a pair of stock 16-17 rim but wasn’t sure if they would clear the caliper with the rims being a 18

That 40mm offset should still work; will push the tires to being closer to the edge of the fenders. A lot of guys who upgrades and want to fill the fenders,use the 40 or 45mm offsets. Can't tell what size tires are mounted on the pictures.
