I'm looking at buying new wheels/tires/springs for my wagon and it will all be on by next spring. I am definitely going to do prodrive springs with stock struts for now.

I want to buy Rota Torques in 17x8 +48 with a 235/40/17 Kumho Ecsta SPT. Do you think i'd be rubbing/cutting it close? Would i need to fender roll or should i just look into 17x7.5 +48 with 225/45?

I'd also plan on getting it aligned at the specs prodrive suggests

Front
Camber 1 15"
Tracking 0 02" (0.2mm) toe in each wheel
Rear
Tracking 0 01" (0.1mm) toe in each wheel

Thanks!

Hello.

Simple question, can I use 17x7 ET45 wheels with my 225/45/17 tyres in my 2002 (bugeye) WRX Wagon? Reason for not to buy 17x7.5 ET?? wheels is that this specific model is just something I would like to have.. Please help.

Thanks!

Need fender roll in the back to be safe. Can not further answer without rear camber angle. Your front camber is POSITIVE??? I hope you are -1.1.

Impossible to answer without a specific tire, but most likely for most standard street tires, you are ok.

If somebody could report back and tell me that i won't rub i'll feel a helluva lot better. I'm going to be prepared to put the stock springs back on until i get prodrive.

i'm running a similar set up...only difference is springs and i have more rubber

Sometimes you can get away with removing the rear fender trim strip. Sometimes you need to do a little fender rolling.

I am getting a great deal on a set of 17x8 Ultraleggeras.

My setup:

2005 WRX Wagon
All stock except the Swift Sport Springs on stock struts

wheels I can get
OZ Ultraleggera 17x8 +48 with 225 45 17 tiresIf i dont roll im sure it will rub, what if I do roll?

I test fit them and it look like the front was gunna be an issue

What do you experts say?

The front is never an issue. It's the back. What tire will you use? The back rubber liner needs to be removed. Usually with a 8" wheel, you need to roll the back.

Your rear has almost no camber adjustment. What is a W4S?

The front looks like it sticks out. But once you put it on the ground, it is pretty flush. Also, you will want to crank in some negative camber to help with handling. I run 17x8 +45 RPF-1 with 235/40R17 Toyo R888 and I have no clearance problems... I jump my car over anything I can find. I am lowered on JIC coilovers. My next tires will be 245/35R17 and by my measurements, they should fit with no problems.

Go drive it around the block. If they are still sticking out, you need more negative camber.

Autox only, but no rubbing. I don't have rolled fenders.

06 Wagon

Koni inserts w/ RCE Wagon Springs
Stock Top Hat, soon to be GroupN

235/40 - 17 Falken RT615 Azenis
Black Racing ProN1 17x7.5 +48

before these tires I had 225/45 - 17 Cooper Zeon 2XS, which on the car were without a doubt wider and taller than the Azenis and I had no rubbing issues. The Azenis clear the rear strut with a gap 2 mm wider than the Coopers on the same wheels.

I'm sure with lots of weight and big woops on the highway I would get some rubbing, but they aren't used there so no worries.
