In terms of offeset for wheels? Yes. Plenty. Our FAT / Snail Performance 09 WRX runs 18x9.5 +35 and will be running a 10JJ +20 once the new wheels arrive.

I didnt know if people were concerned with the lower offset and how it might effect the wear on suspension/hub parts

The wheel bearings on the 09+s are very easy to replace as well, unlike the 02-07s which needed to be pressed in.

I run +45 with a 15mm spacer... it puts more wear on the wheel bearing sure... But you're tracking the car and should be mindful of these wear parts and inspect them frequently.

You will replace 5x100 hubs more often than the 5x114 due to design as kos said.

I need some advice.

I have a set of 17x8 et45 RPF1s and a set of Rota G Force 18x9 et35. I prefer the look of the rotas for daily driving however I do go to some track events.

I definitely need to pick up some new tires for the Rota and the RPF1 and was thinking about maybe downsizing my wheel collection. My question is, would it be okay to track the Rotas and get some star specs?

I have tracked Rotas, never had a problem with mine. They also get daily driven as well, 18x9 G forces just like what you have.
