Default Another wheel and offset topic!

I'll start by saying that I have a 2000 Impreza 2.5RS.

I used to have 17x7 ET50 offset rims with Yoko AVS Sport 215-45-17 tires and every now and then I would get rubbing in the rear fenders.

People are telling me that 17x7 ET48 offset won't have any rubbing issues.

What are your experiences? I was looking at the 5zigen Heinfeld 17x7 ET48. Will I rub with 215-45-17 tires or will I be fine (as the vendor tells me)?

As far as everything else goes... I have wrx front brake setup, legacy rear vented brake setup, I run DMS 50mm suspsension and I like alot of front camber and little to no rear camber.

What do you guys think? Should I go for the OZ P1 gold rims or the 5Zigens?

Take a wild guess

Theoretically, with a sedan and 215 width tires, you should be okay with the 48 offset. I don't understand why you were getting rubbing with the 17X7 et50...48 would push the wheel/tire out 2mms, so there's a bit more chance of rubbing. Try not to lower the car too much, or roll the fenders.

Both P1 and Heinfield look good, weighs around the same, so I say it's just a matter of personal perference. The P1 seems more popular and more "established" around here so that would be my choice, but both are fine rims.
