Most popular aftermarket wheel/tire sizes

These are our most popular aftermarket wheel sizes, with suggested offsets and tire sizes. The most common problem we see with aftermarket wheels are offsets that are too low. The factory wheels have a very high offset, and most wheels for other cars have much lower offsets. Some wheel vendors will try to sell you +30 or +20 wheels for your Subaru. Those WILL NOT FIT your Subaru!

17x8" +48 with 235/45R17
18x8.5" +48 with 235/40R18 or 245/35R18

 

2008-2009 WRX/STI

17x8" +48 with 235/45R17
18x8.5" +48 with 235/40R18
