FWD rims to fit AWD?

Postby rjc333 » Mon Aug 14, 2006 7:45 pm

Ok, so you're probably scratching your head wondering why the heck I'm posting anything regarding AWD on this site.  Well, I can't think of a better group of people to tap for a knowledge base who would know better.  So here's my question, and forgive my ignorance if I'm wrong here: whenever I flip through auto magazines and get to the back where you see all the tire and rim advertisements, I've seen that they sell separate rims for FWD and RWD cars.  I have a set of 17" aftermarkets on the GTZ right now, and I was wondering if they would bolt up to an AWD car, like a WRX or something?

They very well could.  Same bolt pattern as the WRX.  I never got around  to trying them on my sisters car before I sold them.

-42 mm offset on the Beretta 7" wide wheels.  You can check the offset for WRX wheels, but remember I think they are narrower.  Check for an aftermaket 7" wide.
