Default Am I in trouble here?

First, please don't flame if its covered before, I tried to search, to no avail.

I recently picked up a set of prodrive PFF7's in 5x100 18x8. I have a question though. I ordered a set of brand new falken 235's and I have asked a few guys and some say that it should fit no rubbing, others say they might rub.

Wheels:
Prodrive PFF7
18x8
+51
Tires:
Falken Azenis FK452
235/40/18

Link to said wheels:
http://www.oakos.com/Merchant2/merch...RDPFF718805100

The page from oakos says:
"A perfect fit for your Impreza"
"Fits: 2002+ WRX & 2004 STi"
Whats with the +51 offset though I didn't think much of it before but now I'm worried

You'll be OK. The +51 offset will just keep the tire further from the fender, but still away from th the strut. You'll be fine. I'd bet on it.

Wow I just purchased some PFF7's from Oakos friday. Got my tires mounted today. I put on Kumho ASX 225/40/18. I have plenty of room. Wish I had gotten 235's. You should be fine. What color did you get? I got the Anthracite.
