Will i have any clearance issues on a stock '02 Wrx if i go with 17x8 with a 35 offset? If so, will a camber kit help?

That's too low of an offset for an 8" wheel. Ideally you want to keep it in the +48 to +53 range. +35 is bad for handling and increases long term wear and tear.

Thank you brfatal! I am going to go with 17x8 w/a 47 offset.

+47 Should be fine if it's a sedan and not a wagon.
