450.00 obo for the whole thing.

location ?

a quick google search shows the wrx bolt pattern is 5x114
i'm browsing for a 2018 Elantra which is also said to be 5x114

backspacing may be a concern but still peaks my interest

Check aftermarket wheel specs on tire rack for both vehicles. Guessing the wrx is like +50-55 offset

Hub / bore on the Hyundai is 67.1 and the WRX shows to be 56.1
So that means these wheels won't fit ?

kind of a bummer

You’d have to bore them out which wouldn’t be worth the effort IMO. Better off just buying new wheels which doesn’t make financial sense.

i built a winter wheel / tire setup on tire rack, came out to like 1100 bucks.
I was just hoping these would work because it's a good deal

oh well, good luck to the OP

Also depends on the year for wrx. Older ones were 5x100 on regular wrx and 5x114.3 on the STI. I may be wrong tho

Dang, sorry i didn't come back to this sooner. I got busy. Thanks for the help on seeing if this would fit his car everyone. And thanks to Gav's for the interest. Too bad it doesn't fit :(

TTT.

I literally just texted my wife that I want to shop for winter tires for her 2012 Impreza hatch. Looks like there's a half inch difference in diameter between our current wheels. Will have to dig a little and see if that's enough to eff with the ABS and AWD. How many miles?

As long as they're all the same size, it shouldn't matter, it'll just throw off the speedo a little bit. Other than that, the car will have no idea the tires are a smaller diameter.

Can you check the hub bore size? I've got a guy that'll do them for free if needed, but they do seem larger than the ~57MM WRX bore size...
Sure, i will check the bore size and advise.

thanks!
