Default +40 offset OK?

I looked at a cheap set of Konig's tonight (see post below on info on Konig Assassin's) and they are +40 offset. I've looked at all the stickies above on offset information, but I appear to be too dense to figure out if there is any way to use these on my 2002 WRX wagon. While I'm not sure I measured at the right spot, they appear to be 6.5" wide rims. (The catch is the price of these - 4 like-new wheels and so-so tires for $125 total)

So any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Steve

Nope, offset will destroy your wheel bearings. In simple terms anything below 48 tends to be bad, and anything between 48 - 53 is good.

I, personally, would run +45's if I found some I really liked for a good price, but nothing less. +40's is too much.

Thanks everyone for your replys. I've told the seller they won't work for me, and now I can set my sights on other things to buy.

Pretty much. Although I dont know if the 55mm applies though, so just stick with anything OEM or anything between 48 and 52 or so.
