Is it reasonable to assume Rota DPT will also fit the Brembos since it's a knockoff of the CE28 and comes in nearly identical offsets?

Volk CE28N = 18x8.5_ET40 & ET44__(15.2 lbs)... (

I know the 17x9 +42 DPT clears the Brembos just fine.

No Brembo interference (I would surely think), but I believe you will have serious interference wit the lip in the back with only a 43~44mm offset. With my 17x9 & 48mm offset & Toyo 255x40 R888's I had to roll the rear a tiny bit. And, this was with over -2 camber.

the 18's are Work Euro Fedelta

the 17's are just stock rims from another car (is300) that have the same bolt pattern.

i highly doubt either will fit. if you're looking for inexpensive winter wheels, 05-07 sti wheels or rotas are your best bet.

I think it's likely the 17x7's will work. Why aren't you just putting them on the car and seeing for yourself?

As its been said over and over, clearing Brembos is more about spoke design than width or offset.

I don't see why the OP is not trying these on the car... How hard is it to do that?
I got cheapo 17x8 wheels that cleared my Brembos just fine. I agree it is a spoke design issue. Also think a lot will fit.

Looking to get some rota grids 18 x 8.5. I know i need some spacers to clear the brembos in the front, and i'm gonna half to roll the back fenders. Just wondering what offset i should run on stock springs and if anyone knows if i will have to just roll the back fenders or pull them as well? thanks!

well i've read up on the grids some, and those are the things i've found out. some people say they have to roll and pull the back fenders, some say they don't have to at all. as far as the offset, i'm really not sure so i thought i'd ask here. kind of came out like quite a noob question my bad, just trying to get some feedback

not for the 18x8.5's....no fender mods required...as far as spacers, i believe those are only required for the 18x9.5 +38.

my fault, i've been wrong all along. i meant to put 9.5 not 8.5, i've found most people running between 41-45 camber. i'm not going to lower for a little while. want to know how much work really needs to be done for the least amount of rubbing as possible

Default What year car?

stisland: First off, what car do you have?
Secondly, what offset are we talking about for the wheels? What tires and size?
All this is critical to giving you help. Otherwise you might as well not ask.
Spacers is not the first thing you should be thinking about.

There is no such thing as 41-45 camber. Mostly we are interested in increasing negative camber so numbers would be like -2 degrees of camber.

first, we don't know what kind of sti you have.
second, don't bother if you're not gonna modify your suspension.

08 sti, was planning on running on stock springs just because i'm already fairly low to the ground with the front lip. are you saying it would be absolutely necessary to get different springs as in coilovers? or would i be okay just getting some lowering springs?

if you're gonna run stock springs, you might as well not bother with wider and lower offset wheels. stiffer springs will help keep the fenders off the tires.

or you could be cheap and lazy by running stock springs and stretched tires with fender mods.

yeah i will try them on the car, when it is ready to come home with me, lol, thanks guys. most likely the center bore size is wrong though, since these are OE rims from a different manufacturer.
