    I have an 03 wrx. the bolt pattern is 5x100. I purchased a set of 06-07 calipers,pads, etc but need a full set of rotors. Ive been told that the fronts dont matter but ill need 06-07 rear rotors. So I figured ill buy a complete set of 06-07 rotors, but found out the bolt pattern on 06-07's is 5x114 which wont fit.. my question is which year rotors should i buy? i think im going to order a set from these guys... http://www.adamsrotors.com/

    Where did you buy the 06-07 calipers from?

    What year/make/model are the calipers from that you bought? If you bought STI calipers, that needs to be addressed.
    Providing all the information possible helps with people with knowledge being able to guide you correctly.

    To help clear this up..

    He purchased my 06/07 wrx brake upgrade.
    SS lines, bbk rear adapters, and of course the calipers with pads.

    Will 2010 WRX OEM sized rotors work with this caliper upgrade?

    So then why is he not just getting the 06-07 roters that match the brake calipers rather then asking what years cross over?.

    He bought STI rotors, which will not fit.

    OP, get 06/07 WRX rotors all around. You should be fine with that.

    Did you get the normal 06 07 calipers or did you get the limited calipers, which is the red 4 pot 2 pots.

    If you did get the red ones I know frozen rotors has power slot slotted cryo treated rotors. And I believe they give an mnsubaru discount

    I believe all '06-'07 WRXs came with the red 4/2 pot calipers.
