Fit? most likely. Be optimum for our cars? no.

Also, is that question that was asked of the seller from you? 87w is the load and speed rating of the tire...not anything to do with the wheel

I have Konigs, they suck. the offse is 40 too low. i have 45 offset konigs, but they are heavy, ugly, and just suck. I already ordered new wheels and am just hoping i can get my konig n wheels off my hands for 400 bucks. DONT GET THEM! If you want konigs, buy mine!

+40 offset is too low for a 17x7 wheel on your car... +48 or higher is what you should be looking for.

To simply answer your question, yes, they fit. I've seen a WRX in my area with those wheels and they're pretty close to flush so I assume they're about +40mm offset as opposed to +48.

I have 17x8 +40 wheels (not Konig) and they fit well (currently on 225/45 PZeros). However, take the advice given by so many in these forums. .....stick with an offset that is closer to stock. Just because a wheel "fits" doesn't mean it's the right one for your car.

If you take the buy now price of 800 plus the shipping of 150 you get 950. Go to subydude and get a set of decent rims and tires for almost the same price. The wheels are not quite the right size and the tires are horrible.

subieworx - good point, i wasn't going to pay 800 for em - 500 tops...anyways, i already have 2 sets of rims, there's just something about the unknown's that i like - wish they weren't made by konig - but noone around where i live has em' so we'll see what happens. i'm definitely not going to buy the set on ebay thankx to the the advice of people on nasioc. woot.
