Default Motegi 18x8 & General 225/40/r18 HELP?!

Looking for some thoughts...

I have an 04 impreza ts and am looking to get a used but "like new" set of Motegi DHK Chrome wheels with General Exclaim UHP tires. I've been told the offset is 50 but can only find info referring to them being 40?! Any ideas if they will fit my stock ts wagon? I've read they are heavy? I don't race so this shouldn't be an issue, right?! I don't want to modify my wheel wells and definetly don't want them rubbing!! Any other thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.

Is my $1500 better spent elsewhere?

Thanks

Offset 50 should be fine, but offset 40 is a little tight for your TS wagon!

If I were you, I would spend that $1500 on a set of 2004 STi's BBS with tires! They will fit on your car with no problem!

Seems like a lot of money for used 18" chrome wheels, and cheap tires to me. Better spent on some Prodrives

Thanks for the info. I would love to get hooked up with some 2004 sti bbs rims but finding decent used ones with good rubber is another issue. Any ideas where I might find some or who might be looking to sell their wheels?!

Cheers
