Any specific reason??? How much would the 25mm Conversion Spacers and the +40 offset on the TE37 Super Lap Wheels(17x8.5) affect the difficultly factor of fittment on my car??? Without screwing up my Wheel Bearings and other suspension stuff too badly? Thanks guys for all your advice. Me Stupid Newbie;-(

Its a strength issue. When you bolt on conversion spacers, you will need to cut your stock studs just about in half. With the larger spacers (the 25mm's that I SUGGEST IF YOU GO THAT ROUTE), you won't need to cut as much as you would with say a 10mm or 15mm. This allows for more contact between the lug and the original stud.

You'll also need to worry about stretching tires with the 25mm spacers though....

or you can find 5x100 wheels.

OK reading all these posts and i am in the air still on fitment. I have a 02 WRX and am about to buy Konigs 18x7.5 45mm offset and runing 2254018s. from what i read it is about 2mm in the grey area i guess you can call it and would work ok. anyone else run that size and not have problems? car is stock height for the time being. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Seems to me that would fit easily and over all diameter would be close to stock..?
I can't remember what the factory tire size is on the bugeyes...

Stock height on a bugeye is 25". 225/40R18 is fine.

OK my main concern was that there will be no premature wear on my wheel bearings and i won't have any rubbing issues, especially if i decide to lower it in the summer time. Hoped someone else on forum might be running a 18x7.5 with a 45mm offset that can reasure me i am safe running the wheel. thanks again.

people really need to stop worrying about the 5x100 wheel bearings. i had 100k on mine and never had to replace them after numerous sets of wheels with varying offsets.

245/40/18s with -2.5* camber on all four corners.

And I'm not sure what lip it is because the customer did not purchase through us. I'll see if I can find out.

245 on a 10.5" wheel is moronic and dangerous.

People eat McDonalds every day and say they have no health problems too. People, in general, are idiots.

Admittedly not enough meat for any serious track driving, but for a daily it should suffice. It certainly accomplishes the goal of breaking necks as it drives by.

As far as fender work, it was only a roll in the rear and no pulling with no literally no rubbing at full-lock.

sidewall's wrong. You want <25" with a WRX 5-speed. 35 sidewall would be better gearing.
