Exclamation Is anyone running 17 9.5 +44 offset

Like the titles says is anyone runing 17x9.5 +44 offset rims on their STI. I want to purchase new rims and I just wanted to see if anyone has pictures so I can see how it is looking.

oh. well then yeah. as long as the hoop clears your brembos as well as the spokes I say go for it. Depending on your suspension you may need to use a spacer and will definitely require some fender work.

I have 17x9,+44,255/40 on my 2004 STi. There is 3-4 mm clearance between the rear struts and the tires. 17x9.5,same offset,would require spacers on my car (and a little more rear fender roll).
