Just found this thread and made it through all the pics that were still hosted! Lots of great setups in here.
I recently purchased my FXT off a member here and it's sitting on 2011 STi BBS (18x8.5 +55) with 25mm adapters (effectively +30mm offset). Tires are 245/40 all-seasons and no rubbing on swifts and GR2 struts, but I feel like a 45 series would look a little better and would also be pretty much spot on with stock diameter. Not sure if that'd cause rubbing, though. Sounds like a few people have run into that in the rear with something close to this configuration, and they needed to roll.
I'm getting ready to replace pads/rotors and will be test-fitting a set of 720Form GTF1 17x9 +35 that came off the BRZ I just sold. They're wrapped in 245/40 MPSS, but that's a pretty short tire on the Fozzy. With the change in offset and width, I'll only be seeing +1mm on the outside, and I'll be getting a set of 245/45 Conti Sports, most likely.
The only thing I'm not sure of is whether or not this wheel will clear the 06-07 WRX 4/2-pots. Haven't found enough people running this wheel to know for sure; I just know they don't clear Brembos. If they don't fit, who knows what I'll get, but I'll end up selling both current sets, so I can recoup some cost. Don't wanna run spacers or adapters because my tire shop is picky about that.
Pics when I can get em uploaded.
