i've got 17x8.5 SSR-c, +48 on my 05 sti (5x114.3), and w/ 255-40-17 tires, there's about 3mm of clearence to the strut. the fender seems fine... w/ a +51, you just can run as wide a tire... you could probably run 235-40-18... i think for 8.5 width, +48 is about the highest id go. you could go +51 if they were 18x8...

THANKS! I originally had 18x8 SSR Comps in 51 offset, but bent two of them, and am looking to replace them with 2 18x8.5 48 offset that I'll throw in the front to clear a BBK. As long as I run the same width tires, they should be good to go I read.
