I've also done numerous searches and my computer illiterate ass can't find anything as far as lip is concerned.. and i am also aware that the amount of lip will be very minimal, but its coo.

offset does not always effect lip size ... it's strictly wheel design ....

What luke said.

The wheels are 45 offset, but do not fit on a STI. They have to be spaced out to 35 to fit with the Brembos.

I'm in Anaheim....and my wheels are for sale.

H&R spacer kit, comes with longer studs, and hubcentric spacers. So no problems yet.
