Cheers - do you know what specs I would need to fit over stock STI Brembos in 17”

I’m looking at options to make the ride softer for a little one and have come the the conclusion that the BBS STI alloys are probably not going to happen.

They do, but look really odd in 17 on a new age car because of the spoke design not going to the outside of the rim it looks a really small wheel,

You could just put v7/8 sti wheels on for cheap option,
Jap performance has a set of bbs 17s

I’ll see if I can find some pictures as I really like the look of the photo of attached but I guess they are 18s then.

I have thought about stock STIs but I just wanted something with a bit different and with more of a “rally” look to them ��

Looked at the JPP set and that’s exactly what I am looking for but they are in desperate need of a refurb and no tyres so will round out at well over a grand when adding new tyres

The bbs rims from the spec c are normally pricey,
The revolution wheels are lovley and built well but need to be in 18inch for stylish reason in my opinion.

Cheers for the help, I can’t find anyone with 17s on newage probably for the reason you have mentioned.

I’m in no rush I just want something that’s 17” for more comfortable ride (I have stock STI suspension) something that looks good in gold as a bit of a change and something that has a bit more of a rally feel.

All in it would be great to get the complete package in decent condition with new or nearly new decent tyres for around 800

The BBS wheels would be my preference but unfortunately my budget just doesn’t extend that far right now.

Revolution Millenium all fit over Brembo as they were designed specifically for the STi.
I've looked at fitting them on my Classic over Brembo's for that retro rally look.

Thanks Scott. Really after 17s though so I can have a thicker tyre wall. I’m getting a few complaints about the comfort of the ride

If your happy with your current wheels you could change to Coilovers and run the damping right down and choose a softer spring rate

Learning as I go, thought I had PFF7s but they’re actually speedlines.

Nothing wrong with them, bit tired though and thought a change up would be good.

Any recommendations on a set of coilovers that would offer this, road use only so don’t need anything fancy but don’t want eBay poo either

Hmmmm - maybe I should just stick with what I have!

Okay they’re not speedlines then they’re the copy ones - inovits? Something like that

Thanks Both, I had a look and I definitely have the replicas - Inovit redlines I think they are called. They look like PFF7s but from what I read on them a while back they are not as strong as flowformed and they are also heavier than the flowformed wheels.

I don't track the car though and have always seen me good for road use so I could just give them a touch up and move to coilovers.

Thanks for all the advice on here - I will look at coilovers as an alternative and keep my eye out for a set of second hand wheels in good nick.

Still asking about wheels - can anyone add to the picture above with 17” options on a newage that fit over Brembos.

I really just want the BBS wheels that came on the spec c but they just don’t seem to come up. Now looking at new.

Looking at attached set, does anyone know if I have selected the correct specs and how wide I will be able to run without arch modifications?

Ride height is standard
