Default Most concave fitment of Rota Grid??

I'm looking for the maximum concavity possible out of a set of Rota Grids with no clearance/rubbing issues.

I have an 09 WRX sedan at stock ride height. I want to keep it at 17" with stock tire diameter.

So I'm wondering what width and offset to order...thanks.

all 9" grids have the same face.....

all 9.5" grids have the same face.....

the 17x9 +42 is going to be the easiest for you to fit, but you'll still need to roll fenders at the least.

If he goes with the 17x9 +42...

He'll only need to roll the rears. Maybe not even if he stays at stock ride height. He said he wants to stay with stock tire size too. 225/45/17 will stretch a good amount on a 9" rim

I ran/run 17x9 +44 Work CR-Kai with 245/40/17 tires. Lowered about an inch on epic springs, and then again on RCE blacks, I did not have to roll any fenders. It was VERY close but I did not have to roll for fitment and nothing rubbed.

However, after I installed my white line rear subframe and differential bushings (solid poly, not inserts) it started to very slightly rub in the rear so I had them rolled.

Hope this helps.
