does anyone hav pics of a gc with rota boosts 17x8 48mm offset? preferably with a substantial drop. my RS-T is dropped on JIC FLT-A2rs coil overs with 7k springs and stock 16x7 2000 rs wheels wrapped in falken azenis 215/45's i really like the boosts and am looking for pics or opinions on whether i'll rub or not. i also hav the fender lip completely bend straight up flush to the inside of the fender and my inner fenders are gone to make room for my charge pipes. thanks for any info guys.

maybe, they do seem to be the RG replicas. i can't remember if the RG's hav the same size and offset but i'll check. i love the way the rg's look, this is mainly just to find out if anyone knows of rubbing issues. i'll check subydude, i thought i looked and didn't see any gc's with boosts but i'll look again. and yeah i hav a buncha ppl who keep telling me to take pics. i'm working on it lol. i need to find a camera from a friend that either knows where the hell his usb cable is or has software that isn't crapping the bed. i'll get them up asap.

thats there suggested fitment guild so it might work but they dont suggest it. now that I think about it I was able to fit 18inch black racing pro N1's that were 8inch wide but I had to roll the fenders soo... yah?? if you decide to get some tell me how it goes since I want these wheels too. worse case I'd need spancers I'm guessing....

scobaru thats awesome news. how low is it? with my 16's and 215/45's i'm level with the fender in front and tucking about 1/2" in the rear. if i can get away with it i'll leave the suspension height where it is with 17's but if i hafta lift it to avoid rubbing i will. anything else u noticed about the 17x8's on the gc? thanks.
