Has anyone used those adapters in order to use other wheel options like newer STIs rims? found some but none hubcentric, so likely requiring som ring (actually more like a pipe, depending on adapters' thickness) but, wandering if those things are safe enough

My 2010 has today forged STIs BBS (MY 2004), but too narrow (7.5 in) still for the 255 tyres which gave it really nice grip, so found a set of 08 STI wheels 8.5 in wide and searched about those adapters but, no article on how safe they really are, either for a track nor a family/highway use;

a set from a reputable company will run you around 150-200 bucks. Add that to whatever price you are willing to pay for sti wheels and you can get a set of good aftermarket wheels in 5x100 with proper offset. I've never used them myself but the smallest once i've seen are 20mm so an STI wheel most likely 45-48 mm offset would throw it to 25-28. Probably not worth it.

Good point on the offset change.... just if the STI wheels price really worth then;
