At the Track RPF-1 17x9 +45 clear Brembos?

Any proof of this, or simply will not fit? No spacers will be used, tracked STi.

Well, after a little more searching, I don't think they will fit. Someone confirm?

http://www.iwsti.com/forums/tires-wh...ml#post1472443

"nope, the RPF1s that fit are

17x8 +45mm
18x8 +45mm (5x100 only)
17x8.5 +40mm (5x114.3 only)

all other RPF1s have the wrong disk and cause caliper issues."

and

"Yea I wish they made the ear a bit different, but for most wheels it's not a problem. I also test fitted a set of enkei rpf1's 17x9 et 45. They fit in the rear, but would need like a 20mm spacer in front to clear the caliper. This was a japanese spec wheel with a concave face made for an rx7."

all the 9"+ RPF1 has the special "concave" face which has very little caliper clearance, so no they wont clear.

What about the 17x9s with the e35? Let me say that this is for autox with coilovers and agressive camber.

I've personally test fitted this wheel. You need around a 15mm spacer to clear the brembos. The rear might need a spacer depending on your coilovers. A 17x9 +35 is supposed to clear with a 5mm spacer or something like small in the front.

Keep your posts to one bumped thread.

Jesus Christ, rpf1's are one of the most common wheels. NO they won't interfere with the struts....I have no clue where people get these ideas.

Seriously how old are you 2? lmao do you act like this when people ask you the same questions in life .. I was worried because as of right now with the wheels I have that are 17x7.5 I can barely fit 2 fingers between the strut and wheel.. I thought maybe the wheel or tire would rub on the inside.. I am not gonna run some lame azz negative camber to get them to fit.. I will roll the fenders but not pull them.

But thanks odin... Sincerely.. NOBAMA

jk.. have fun

And trust me I have searched and searched the forums.. And I see contradictory statements throughout with different subarus on here.. Even people saying they had to have spacers to clear in the front and rear depending on the year/model

Dude. All we ask is you keep questions confined to one area instead of asking in multiple threads at the same time.

Forum etiquette goes a long way around here.

And no, you aren't getting contradictory posts unless someone is doing something extremely stupid.

2 fingers between the strut and wheel is a LOT, well over an inch unless you have super skinny fingers. You need about a credit card worth there.

So 2 fingers means that 2 inches more wheel can comfortably fit at the same offset.
