Default Buddy club p1 racing 2 offset

I did a search for this but found nothing. I was wondering if the buddy club p1 racing 2 wheels with an offset of 45 will fit on my 02 wrx with out any issues. They would be 45 offset and 17x8's. does anyone see any problems with this or is anyone running anything like this.
thanks
Justin

I don't think they make the 17x8" in a Subaru fitment. At least I could never find it listed anywhere. Let me know if you find out otherwise, I'm interested. All the ones I saw didn't even have the right bolt pattern. The 45mm offset would be ok.

i dont know anything about wrx wheels so maybe i should look in the manual but i found 5x114.3 with a 45 offset 17x8. I will check to the manual to see if that would fit because i don't know what stock is.
Thanks

Wrong bolt pattern, Subarus use a 5 X 100 pattern. The 45mm offset would be fine for an 8 inch wide wheel though.

Yes, that's the one I found. As Khail said, you need a 5x100 bolt pattern to fit your car.

You dont HAVE to get Buddy Club P1 QFs, though they're better. I have the SF version. A decen bang for the buck price, 5x100, 17x7, 48mm, 17lbs

40mm is really pushing the limits on an 8 inch wide wheel. It will probably fit (on a sedan), and probably look fine, but you are changing the steering geometry too much so your handling will suffer. And you will wear out your wheel bearings faster. I would try to find something closer to 45mm for an 8 inch wide rim.
