Will the Konig Sideways 17x7 fit my Forester?

Will the Konig Sideways 17x7 fit my Forester 2.5X Limited?
I currently have the 17 x 7.0-inch 5-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels.

is this a trick question?

are those wheels "sideways"

cause 17x7 is the same as 17 x 7.0

Offsets and other things can be different. ;)

yes they can... thats why i just checked with Konig's website where I followed a "what fits" link that says the konig sideways come in a 48 offset that will fit the 09 Forester


but I thought you might have done that already.

I was at the Discount Tire site and saw where it said it fit, but I wasn't sure about the offset as I don't even know what the stock offset is?

The Konig Sideways will fit in the 17x7 40ET size but this model has been discontinued and we only have 3 wheels left in stock.
