The wrx shares the same bolt pattern as the 04 sti. Bolt pattern is 5x100

Rotational mass sucks balls. I went from 17x7 to 18x8.5, and you can feel a bunch of drivetrain play that wasn't there before and the acceleration suffered pretty bad. Everytime you load/unload the driveline it feels like the whole thing is getting twisted a little bit, not very comforting. But then you'd get balls deep in a corner and it would make up for it, so you could try it, but youd need to roll the fenders, my 18x8.5s came within like 1/16th of an inch to my fenders because my perrin springs made the back sit so low, but I imagine any amount of lowering with that wide of wheel simply wouldn't fit.

The Team dynamics wheels will fit your WRX. There are 2 sizes that SRP carries.

5x100 for WRX, RS, 04 STI, Forester, Baja, Legacy

5x114.3 for 05STI +

The center bore of 56.1 is the same for all Subarus

18x9's can be ordered but I think they are a little wide. You would be better off with 18x8. 18x9 + will be heavier but when you do this the tire is what gets really heavy.
