Default 17inch rpf1s on 2015 STi?

Before anyone says search or freakout about why?! I have these leftover with perfectly good track rubber from my Si. Will they clear the brembos? Im not concerned about aesthetics meow. 17x8 +45 offset with direzza dii on them.

Would like to use them for autoxing until I can drop some money on 18s.

No rpf1 regardless of size will clear brembos without a spacer.

I think his post was missing a coma after the 'No'.

A coma there would make it read like he was agreeing with you.

Kids these days and their grammar, or lack thereof.

I forgot a comma too up there; but, no coma lol. I just haven't had time to try, I had to push getting the car back two weeks just because of work and taking care of my daughter. I have a buyer and he's bugging the crap out of me because of a V2lab meet this week. Wheels are in the car. I guess I could just use the spare tire stuff and do it in front of work haha. Just thought this would save me some time and sweat. Thanks for the responses though. If someone could provide a legitimate concrete answer that'd be fantabulous.

I'm talking width. Not diameter.

Any 17" wheel will clear brembos in terms of diameter.

Any more photos? I'd like to see how tiny the 17" RPF1 looks on the 2015's.

With RPF1, its all about the curved or straight spoke. 17x9 +35(narrowest rpf1 with straight spokes) will not clear due to the straight spoke hitting the caliper on the face. A 17x8 +45, 17x8.5 +40 clears the face fine but the barrel of the wheel is real close to the circumference of the caliper as show above. The straight spoke RPF1 only clears brembo's once you get to the 10.5 width.

Sorry guys, my bad there. I always shopped RPF1's in 9+ sizes because I hate the look of the smaller sizes and never could fit them over brembos without spacers, and I did not think the smaller ones had any chance of fitting without a silly offset .. but I was wrong.

Sorry for the mis information.
