  • Q: Weight  mallozzipb169752 months ago

    Whats the weight of these wheels? Lighter or heavier than stock 04-07 sti BBS wheels?
  • Q: Offset?  StarryBoar3 years ago

    Hey guys sorry to be a noob but I know next to nothing about wheels and the correct way to size wheels. I have an 05 STI and I know the factory BBS' or 17x8 with a 5x114.3 bolt pattern but i learned the factory offset is +53. Im just confused as to how to make these work. Would it be a tire that supports +42 or is it other suspension components in the wheel well? Thanks guys.

      A:  The +42 is the offset of the wheel meaning how far the hub mounting surface is to the center of the wheel. As far as tires go, you would be more concerned with the 17x8 information than the offset. The offset is just going to give it the " Pushed out more" look. This offset on these isn't aggressive so making them work is as simple as bolting up the wheel :)
