I am also thinking of a set of 527's for my hawkeye STi so I will probably be looking at the 18 x 8.75 in 5x144.3 pcd. I am currently running on Team dynamics Pro race 1.2 on 18 x 8.5 so I'm hopping my existing nearly new Toyo's will fit.

So 5x114 pcd will fit the hawkeye? Did the arches need rolling with your current team dynamics alloys....?

No mate direct fit straight on no issues at all on both standard shocks & springs, TEIN lowering springs and now Driftworks HSD coilovers.

Note the difference between the Hawkeye wrx and hawkeye STI. Wrx is 5x100 Sti is 5x114.3

To fit XXR 18x8.75" wheels to my hawkeye WRX on Tein S Tech springs I had to ensure I got the right PCD of ET35, fit camber bolts all round, run slightly increased camber and roll the rear arches. Once this was done, no rubbing at all.


They don't just fit as said above, trust me.

I think I actually said that it was my Team Dynamics pro race that fitted straight on as I actually asked the question myself about 527 XXR's but thanks for the information.
