Sorry to revive an old thread but Im not finding the info I need. Im original owner of an 04 sti, I want a set of 17x8.5 +45 te37s. Car is on tein mono coilovers. Id love to run 255 or 245/40 tires. Will this offset work? Will they poke out? I dont want that look. Ill roll the rear fenders if need be. Concerned about clearing the Brembo and the tein monos. Thanks.

What's the difference in an '04 and an '05-'06-'07? I'm not sure there is much but the 5 x 100 spindles.
I ran your basic setup on my '07, on the track on Toyo 888 255 x 40 on Enkei GTC01 17 x 9.5 38mm Offset , with almost no issues. A tap here and there in the rear on the inner lip was all I needed.

Not not sure if there is any difference other than the change from 5x100 to 5x114. Cant find any info on the 17x8.5 +45 te37 fitting. I want to run advan ao52 255/40r17 tires. One vendor said they should clear brembo. I would like a solid yes they clear. Would the +45 stick out more than your 38s?

NO. A +45 would stick out less! You need to understand offset or "ET" numbers. The higher the number, the more they are set IN. You need a comparator. Also, tires don't vary much for a given size. It is the rim they fit on that distorts them and causes variations. Look at recommended wheel widths for tires and don't go narrow, as that may cause the tire to bulge (and also be less stable).
Look under "specs". You will see that it is 8.5-10. That's why I used 9.5" rims.
Here's one comparator. There are quite a few online and in this thread!
Many wheel manufacturers offer wheel caliper fitment "cross-sections" or "silhouettes" that you can print out, cut out and fit on your spindle and over the caliper to check for clearance issues.
I would do research and call a vendor about where you can find them. They are not unusual. You just need to ask.

Thank you for the offset explanation and the link to that chart!!!! Very helpful. Now I just need to figure out how much clearance the oem bbs wheels have from the caliper.

Hey there, I have 18x8.5 rims with a +35 offset. What is the best performance setup so that there is no rubbing and etc. The meatier the better. I'm thinking about 235/45/18 but I'm not sure. Please help
