Hey guys... I'm back and once again require the assistance of the OzFoz community. I'Ve just bought a set of STI 18" rims for my SH. They haven't arrived yet, will be here in 2 days. They are 18x7.5 offset of 55. Will they fit straight on to my SH? If not is there an easy way to make them fit, ie Spacers etc. (I just have the stock brake calipers, no brembos.)

Cheers, Simmo!

"Fit"?

If they have the same 5 x 100 PCD, then "yes" ... but you've gotten rims with a +55mm offset; the Foz comes with +48mm offset rims, so the +55mm offset narrows the wheel-track by 14mm overall. :?

7.5" wide rims aren't too hefty, so there probably won't be any scrubbing issues, if that's what you're asking?

Yeah, they have the 5x100 boot pattern... And yeah by "fit" I meant without any scrubbing. So long as they don't scrub I'll be happy haha. Sorry for the vagueness :)

Still in the process of getting tyres for these ^ so they aren't on yet... Has anyone put 18x7.5 +55 rims on an SH before?

Rowie runs 17x7.5 +55's on his SH from memory so you should be able to get an idea on offset (obviously different diameter though)

I was running 17x7.5 +55 STI wheels from a Bug-eye STI wrx. Fit fine without scrubbing - the tyres I used were the same as the S-Edition (225/55R17). As someone earlier said, you will have narrowed the track but you could throw a 10mm spacer on each hub to centre the tyres more in the wheel well (pushes the centre of the wheel out more towards the guard - stockies are +48). Spacers are illegal anyway though - for what its worth mine passed roadworthy with that rim/tyre combo :thumbs:

^^^^^^^
Just to satisfy my OCD those wheels are +53, so +55's are slightly closer to the suspension.
