Default 2008 wrx 17x9 offset?

i plan on purchasing 17x9 Rota grids and cant figure out what offset would work best, i have coilovers installed currently, is 9'' wide enough to have a good amount of poke? also will i need to roll my fenders? im up for purchasing 17x9.5 if 9'' isnt enough.

im going for something like this but with 17s

this should be pretty obviuos... if wheels sticking out past the fenders is your goal and the car is lowered on coilovers what do you think? I dont understand why you want to look like you are driving a mexican ferrari but whatever.

Lower offset will push the wheel further away from the hub so... go lowest offset possibly?

+42 to +45 will be best.

depending on tire size and your ride height you'll probably have to roll the fenders, add camber, and/or pull the fenders.

i run 17x9 +44, with -2.5 camber and the rear fenders rolled. fitment is harder on the narrow body
