Default Questions regarding to Enkei RP03

Hi,
I am looking into buying a set of Enkei RP03 for my 07 Subaru STi.

But I am stuck with the wheel spec. I did researches and they showed me 17x8 or 17x9.5 will clear brembos. However I am looking for 17x8.5 or 9. I am just wondering if any of you would know 17x8.5 or 9 will clear the brembo brake caliper?

And I tried both NASIOC and iWSTi to find if any thread covered the spec I want, but so far no luck. Hope I can get an answer.

17x8.5 has 30 and 35 offset to select, 17x9 has only 40 offset.

Any advises will be appreciated.

Kind regards,

-Kin

not all wheels with the same specs have the same amount of brake clearance
