I heard there was a fitment issue going coilovers on the 18x9.5 +45 wheel size. Is this true? I did plan on going some coils but I didn't want to rub the suspension.

Hey guys! I have a 2020 WRX Premium with the 4pot brembo brakes. Are there any 17" wheels that will work with this? I live in a heavy winter area and would like to downsize from my 18"s

Clearance should be similar, if not the same as the previous year 4pot brembos. ('04-'17 STI)

MOST 17" wheels will clear, spoke clearance is more of a concern.

Thank you for the information. Are there any specific wheels you can point me towards? Or what should I be looking for when it comes to spoke clearance?

What "the 4pot brembo brakes" are you using? OEM Subaru brakes from earlier STIs, or an aftermarket Brembo kit? Either way, why are you asking in this thread about wheel fitment on the '18+ STI with it's completely different brake setup?

Edit: If you're using OEM Subaru Brembos, see the sticky threads - https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=448097.

I would be looking at wheels that have confirmed fitment for 08-14 STI. They will have the same or very similar caliper and body clearance to your car.
(and the same bolt pattern)

Did you have a style, or brand, or maybe color in mind? Send me a PM, I'd love to help you out!

The 2020 WRXs can now be spec'd with optional Brembos. It's apart of the "Performance Package" I believe. From what I've seen, they're the same 4pot Brembos we've seen on all previous year STIs, as well as the BRZs with the performance package.

I honestly didn't even realize what thread this was in, we were all new here once...

Following up on this-- does anyone know if the 18+ WRX wheels fit over the 2018+ STI brembos?

I can’t find it now, but I read somewhere that they won’t clear the brakes?
The 2016-2017 WRX 18" wheels do fit over the 18+ brembos. Picture here from this thread here

I just hope you are not spending 275 bucks a rim on stock wheels for winter. Way better options.
