Will this wheel and tire combo fit on an 07 wrx sedan? has anyone had any luck using these enkei's for an aggressive fitment?

+45 isn't that bad of an offset for a 9" wide wheel. Shouldnt be too much to get it to fit well.

they dont see the reason for going bigger than 7.5 or 8? hahaha... and they wonder why I stopped buying from them. They probably missed out on a dozen tire sales.

9" +45 will be pretty easy... just roll your rear fenders so you don't have to run much camber.

....according to his post they said they didn't see a need for a 9" wheel for the size tire he said he wanted to run (which was 235) and suggested a narrower width. I don't see what is wrong with a vendor providing their input on a purchase. ....especially when the suggestion is not as off-base as you make it sound.

Personally, I purchased my 17x8 +45 RPF1's and RE01-R's from TR (Luke) and they provided excellent service/advice. ....and I wouldn't hesitate buying from them again depending on the price.

no he said that there is no reason to go bigger than a 7.5 or 8 and they use 235's. I would want to use 245's on a 18x9. and they dont make one for that hub? hmm may put a damper on that .... how much is a 5x114.3 hub swap?

There are 9" fitments in 5x100, just not in the RPF1.

what would be the better choice, redrilling the hubs, or getting the spacer/adaptors for them? Does anyone else have this problem? what did other people do?
