Im looking to fit some 08 sti rims to my 10 fxt. The off set on the sti is + 55 plus an adapter which is 25mm. Will I be able to run this? Or is this all just wishful thinking?

It will push the wheels out, giving you an effective +30 offset, which means that your wheels will poke out from the fenders a little. It will be a more "hellaflush" fitment.

You might need to play with camber and/or roll the fenders to get them to fit.

finally some people will say it will hurt the bearings.

just get another set of wheels that actually fit. FYI the wheel adapters come w/ longer studs. and your bearings will crap the bed, not right away - but they will eventually...

How much are wheels and adapters? For under a grand you can get a very nice set of wheels with tires.

Those wheels are supposedly 28lbs each (54lbs with tires). That is insanely heavy. Spacers will give you even more unsprung weight. I know you really like those wheels and they would probably look very nice, but just be aware of the weight difference -- you'll probably gain 15-20lbs PER CORNER vs. the stockers :icon_eek:

yep that's pretty much the consensus. I'm guessing you saw the SPT mag with the SH on the cover sporting the 08 STi rims (which btw brand new are $900 each).

Nope, saw the pacific imports forester sti conversion. The sti rims make the car look so much more aggressive. What are the smallest adapters on the market?

Any changes in offset also voids factory spec alignment angles, what with scrub radius changes.
