    For what it is worth, that is the size of the stock wheel on the new WRX's. They come with 235/45/17's. I am not an expert at fitment (of tires anyway), but just thought I would throw that out there.

    I believe the stock offset is +.53 (or .55?), so you would probably want to get as close to that as possible.

    yea stock wheel is 17x7 5x100 205/50R17, with a 53mm offset, im just a complete noob with offsets lol but thanks, so your recomending i get the 44mm offset since its closer to the stock? also could some please explain offsets ? lol im a noob, is it the lower the number, example a 38mm, the more it will poke out from the fender ?

    Really was just letting you know about the tire size that comes on the new WRX's (235/45/17), which runs the 17x8 wheel. Wait until someone else chimes in with the offset that knows a little more than me, but I would think you would want the .44 rather than the .38 just based on the stock offset.
