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.

I've confirmed that that 720Form GTF1 in 17x9 +35 fit over 4/2-pot calipers with LOTS of room to spare. Clearance is tightest on the rear strut, but there's still a decent gap.

Glad I tested these, as one of the adapters that was on the car has several cracks. Not sure if they were already there or if they're really brittle, because I had to give it a few good whacks to remove that one. Now I just need some taller tires, but still considering something a little higher offset, like Enkei TSV 18x8.5 +45. Otherwise, if I keep these, I think I'll need to roll the fenders a bit, because the old tires have rub marks and a 245/45-17 will be the same height as 245/40-18.

Front caliper:


Rear strut:


Rear fender:


Short tire gap...this is on swifts:



I'll get some better pics once I have get it back and cleaned up a bit.

Oh man, that's plenty of space. I have a set of SSR wheels with the specs you just stated sitting in my garage and I don't think they'll do any good on my SF. With the wheels on my SF now with tires mounted, I barely have any strut clearance in front. Must be the offset.

The higher, the fewer.

I'm on GR2 struts, so that could play a factor. I know some struts have different diameters, but not sure what's what.

From what I've read on this forum, your SG struts are better for clearance than the SFs at least in terms of allowing for taller tires. Otherwise, no difference in terms of distance from wheel to strut. Wish my SF had SG struts when I got it.
