rim question

i want to put these rims on my 04 WRX, but they only come with a 40 offset for 17's and a 42 offset for 18's. . . . if the minimum recommended offset for the WRX is 43 how does this work then . . . i really like the way these rims look . . . they are ADR Spade's

Not sure but I think the minimum offset is higher than 43mm, I think it is like 45 or 48

if the car is not going to be lowered, then you wont have that much of an issue with rubbing. however, if you drive it real hard, you may have issues with scrubbing the fenderwell.

on a sedan, you will have less of a scrubbing issue then with a wagon.

it will still hit the outer lip of the fender if it is lowered, though...

i wont be lowering the car . . . and i do have a sedan . . so i would be able to use either the 17's with the 40 offset or the 18's with the 42 offset with minimal problems?
which would be the better of the two options . . .
