PCD: 5 x 100
Centre bore: 73.1mm

These are forged Prodrive GC-010E wheels. They have both Prodrive and Bridgestone branding on them, though from what I’ve read, these were manufactured by Rays in Japan. So quite a list of brand names to be associated with a set of wheels!
If you’ve been looking for a set of these then you probably already know, they are very rare. Their rarity and the fact they are very strong and lightweight makes them quite sought after.
All the wheels have part numbers and Bridgestone branding stamped into them plus original Bridgestone stickers. The stickers are quite faded now but Bridgestone and some Japanese text is still visible. All 4 original Prodrive branded centre caps are also present.
All wheels are fitted with 225/45 R18 95W Falken Ziex ZE914 tyres. Tread depths across all tyres range from 3.5 to 4.5mm meaning there’s lots of life left in them. There are no punctures or puncture repairs to any of the tyres and all hold air fine.
These wheels are obviously perfect fitment for any 5×100 Subaru and will clear STI Brembo calipers without needing spacers. They will also fit many other cars but this is something you’ll need to work out for yourself. A set of 4 spigot rings is also included to give a centre bore of 56.1mm, they were being used to fit the wheels to my Forester STI. Various size spigot rings can be found easily for less than £5.
These came to the UK, from Japan, in 2017 as they were fitted to my Subaru Forester STI when it was imported. I changed the wheels and kept hold of these but have recently sold the Subaru and need the space to store wheels for other cars. When they arrived in the UK they were in very good condition with no major damage, only some minor kerb damage to one wheel. The original anodised finish was tarnished though, which is why they have been painted in Audi Aluminium Silver. To preserve the originality and identifications on the insides of the wheels, only the outer faces were painted. This also means there is no question of any damage hiding under a paint job. Please look closely at the pictures here to see the great condition the outer faces were in before being painted and the even better condition they are currently in, having been cleaned regularly when in use, with BH Auto Wheels.
Collection in person is obviously the easiest and if you think you’d like to do that please contact me and we can discuss payment and best times. I am located near Battle, East Sussex, TN33.
I am also willing to package and arrange delivery for these at the buyers expense. Paisley Freight offer UK delivery for 4 x 18″ wheels and tyres at £42.
For any international interest, it seems international delivery may be complicated by the fact the wheels have tyres on them but for any international buyers who are aware of couriers who would deliver these please contact me and we can look into the costs or I could simply package the wheels for the buyer to arrange collection.

A size guide taken from Prodrive:
Some photos taken before the wheels were painted, so as they came on the imported Forester STI. As you can see they have no major damage, it was simply the anodised finish that was tarnished meaning they benefited from some fresh paint. To preserve the originality of the wheel and leave no questions about their condition, the insides of the wheels were not painted .
