Default 2019 19" rims on 2015 base

I'm sure this has already been answered but I just spent an hour searching and was unable to get a clear answer. I have a 2015 sti base and am looking to get a set of 2018 or 19 sti rims and tires. I just want to make sure they will fit before I pull the trigger I know the rims are 19" which is obviously bigger than the 18"s that are stock. Thank you in advance!

Yes, the base 2018-2019 STi 19-inch wheel will fit your 2015 base STi. Offset and width are the same except the diameter(18” vs 19”). Pic shown below current model STi in Japan still with base 18-inch wheel. No need for spacers just liked mentioned above post.

2018-19 OEM STI wheels will not fit over the 15-17 4 pot Brembo calipers without a 5mm spacer. It is due to wheel design and not just size or offset.

I would go with what Fastwrx.com says. Seems they did the legwork to verify fitment. Id sell you my 19s if I could get type RA BBS wheels though... I do have a set of stock Yokohamas with 6400 miles on them I will let go cheap but shipping might not be
