Default worth getting +17...?

going to pick up some drag DR-31 17x9 but not sure whats the best offset for my 04 sti(already rolled fenders). they come in +17 +28 +38. this guy has a set for dirt cheap but they are 17x9 +17 and thinking they might be to aggressive.... any opinions? thanks

They won't fit.
+17 is WAY to low.

Please do some research before you buy any wheels.

You're only option is the +38, and even that's going to take some work to fit.

go check out the aggressive wheel thread in the member gallery forum. I think they'd all fit its just a matter of how much work you want to do and how aggressive.

^ what he said. The local definition of aggressive seems to include having the car 'slammed' as well as large/low offset wheels.

If you don't feel the need to tuck the tires they will be easier to fit... but still then probably pretty difficult. The size of the tires will make a big difference in how hard itll be to make em fit...

IMO get 275s, then build your fenders around them
