I just found that the offset is between 35mm and 45 mm....Before I buy any rim from a 3rd party source I should be sure that the wheel falls between that offset correct? What is the stock rims OFFSET out of the showroom does anyone know?? I dont want to mess with suspension etc...Whats a safe number to buy wheels at for the offset?
if anyone had that question I found out that its the matter of millimeters and It will not make a difference as long as you keep it between 35-45
Drive like hell, you will get there faster!

Warranty friendly mods for now-
I used Dunlop Winter Maxx this past winter on my '14 and they were great. Would recommend them to anybody here.

I have a set of winter wheels/tires from my mustang I will no longer be using. I Know the wheel themselves will fit (17x7.5 45offset), but the tires are 235x55x17. Will the 55 profile be too tall and rub?
I've bought 225/45/17 Conti WinterContact to replace summer tires on stock rims for the winter season... Expected to be good alternate size. But the first service I tried, refused to put those on "this tires are shorter while Subaru tires are very tight", "liability" and such and such... let's see how it goes with the other one.
The other service sounded like a sophisticated sales-person "we can put those on, but according to your owners manual tires size that is different than on the plate - could cause damage to your transmission... we aren't trying to sell you another set, but you still can return those." ... and buy a new set from us, of course ))
Still sounds like a BS... The main thing is tires have to be equal in terms of characteristics and wear, right? I don't think the one could find a lot of WRX sticked to the original tire size Please correct me if I'm wrong. It is my first AWD.

Im running 225/50/17 Hankook W419 on 17x8.25 +35 xxr 530
no rubbing or issues at all.
225/45/17 should be fine, it's about 1.4% smaller then stock size which is in safe zone for differences in sizes.
