I ordered some 17x7.5 Rota Subzeros which come in 45 or 48 mm offset. Which is best for 225/45/17 rubber (Pilot Sport) on a sedan?

I assume your car is or will be lowered. Please
go with 48mm offset. In fact the proper offset
for the new age WRX is 50-53mm.

Thanks.
I talked to the dealer and the ones I had ordered were 48 mm so it looks like I was on the right track. I canceled the order (long story) but when I get some new ones I'll get 48 mm offset.

I probably won't lower it. With my driving style and some of the local mountain roads I drive on, I need all the suspension travel I can get. :)

Just to support what these other guys have said - According to Rota, the offset of the stock wheels is 52mm, but with the wider wheels 48mm is correct.

:confused:

My understanding is that the wheels are the same.

The reson I ask is because the track width is different between the sedan and the wagon. Either they made the control arms longer or they increased the wheel offset to acheive this.

Wheel offset same GG (wagon)- GD (sedan). Wider track accomplished w/ suspension geometry- the reason why many suspension bits won't interchange between gg and gd.
