Default Volk SE37K, 08 STi, will it fit?

So I have found a set of SE37K's in 18X8.5 with a +40 offset. Anyone have an idea if these will clear the Brembos on my 08 STi? I plan on running a 245/40-18 tire so I shouldnt have rubbing issues.

you'll be 15mm closer to the fenders thanks to that small offset so you indeed might have rubbing mattering on your suspension. Brembo clearance I'm not sure about but I doubt it's a problem.

Thanks.
I was kinda thinking the same about brake clearance since the TE37 and CE28N in the same size and offset fit, but the spoke design is different. You are right, it might rub on the fender lips, or it might be close. I will be running the stock tire size 245/40-18.

Through a little searching, a 17X8.5 +50 SE37K fits over the stock STi Brembo on an 04 so a +40 in the same width should fit...theoretically. I think I'm gonna take a chance and do it.
