#5315 of 5351 New 4 pots and rims
Oct 22, 2007 (1:09 pm)
Well I finally got fed up with the semi annual rebuild of the Willwood calipers, could never get the suckers to stop leaking. They ruined the clear coat on both front rims,
Anyway today I installed Subaru 4 pots and of course the 16" winter rims didn't clear the 4 pots so I had to buy rims as well. Pictures are in my carspace and I cannot figure out how to post them on here.

Nice! Yeah the FHI 4-pots need 16x6.5 IIRC which are RS Pre-02 rims.
I love my FHI 4-pots, they are a great upgrade. That's what we use on the race car.

Actually Mike, they need to be at least 16"x7" with a 48 offset.

Is that the size of the RS Rims? I guess the WRX ones are 16x6.5 and the RS were 16x7. We run RS rims (5 spoke and 6 spoke) exclusively on the race car with the 4-pot FHIs.

Yes, the RS pre-02 are 16x7. Which was why they were in big demand for 02-05 WRXs, when people wanted to put the 4-pots on, while retaining 16s. The 02-05 WRX 16s came in 16x6.5, which practically made them worthless other than for the stock setup.

Yeah I was off by .5 I have a ton of 5-spoke RS wheels at the shop piled up. I think they are classy looking on non-RSes!
