Default RPF1 on 9-2X

Does anyone know if the Enkei RPF1 size 17x7.5 with a 48 offset will fit my Saab 9-2X without any rubbing issues?

Yes they will fit, assuming you get a sensible tire on it.

I'm running a 17 x 8 wheel with a 46mm offset and 215/45s with no problems - driven with the car loaded down and 4 people, no rubbing. You should be able to run 225/45-17s without issue.

I posted a photo with my wheels, a 17 x 8 with 46 mm offset, using 215-45-17 tires - I wasn't pretending or mistaken that they were Enkei RPF1s. Sorry you think my wheels are "so-so" - I think they're great and get lots of compliments. I posted them to show what a 46mm 17 x 8 looked like on the car.

And yes, they're MB Weapons.
