    I'm hoping since I'm not going larger in diameter but just a little wider I'll be ok. I think just a little wider and it will look perfect. I'm definitely not lowering the car.

    When you say "want an +42-45 ET" that means these are good without spacers, right?

    I know I'm bringing up an old thread but does the wheeldude price include shipping or is that added in at checkout?

    On a 2011+ WRX you will be perfectly fine running a 17x9 et40-45 with 245/40 tires with no spacers. Heck, if you had stiffer springs and a mild roll you could probably get away with running 265-275/35/r18 on the new wrx body style.
