Wheel mounting problem
I'm trying to mount a new set of wheels that should have no clearance issues (GR STI OEM's), however, the wheels do not go all the way in, and are stuck half way, this is only on the right side of the car, the left side of the car has no problems whatsoever.

Any ideas? I reached around the wheels to see if anything is blocking it, but theres nothing, it just mounts half way in to the thread.

I have no idea what it could be but, did you try mounting the ones that are not fitting onto the side that has already worked just to make sure something isnt funky about the wheel?

I have, and it still doesn't go on.

hmm, so if i under stand you right the wheels that fit on the one side did not fit on the other side either? *i worded my first question stupidly*

maybe take like a ruler or something and sit it flush to the brake rotor against the wheel stud and see if they are bent?

I have no idea if its possible but maybe you hit a pot hole and the studs are a bit out of wack on that side.

Did you have trouble taking the previous wheels off on that side?

so 2 wheels fit while 2 dont fit? could it be that the vendor sent u 2 wheel of a smaller center bore size so it wont sit flush on the hub?

My hub adapter from my pro drive came off.

Thanks so much T4RAWR! :joy:
