Default Need hubcentric spacer.

I have a '98 RS with rota slipstreams. They are rubbing my struts. What is the biggest hubcentric spacer I could get with keeping the OEM lugs.

I contacted luke@tirerack and he gave me no help. Just, "we don't reccomend spacers"

It really depends how long the studs are in your car. I have seen some Subarus with longer studs than others so it's hard to tell. To be on the safe side, I would say 3mm.

Remember, you must have at least 12mm of thread enagement left for the nuts to work properly.

What is more puzzling to me is why they are rubbing on your car since the offset on the slips is 48 and I have seen GC8s run as much as 53 offset on the same size wheel without problems

I am running a pretty big tire. Where would I be able to get something like that? Can I get a all in one spacer that is hubcentric? Or would I need to get the 3mm spacer, then get a hubcentric ring?

With a 3mm and less spacer you probably aren't going to find one that's hubcentric and likely don't need one since the wheel will still be hubcentric on the hub. You want to use hubcentric spacers if for some reason the wheel can no longer sit on the hub and be hubcentric itself. If you use 10mm+ spacers on a WRX that will happen. Tirerack does have 5mm hubcentric spacers but you can't use that without going to longer wheel studs.
