    949racing 6ULR 5x100 17x9 +48 Fitment on WRX?

    Anyone try these on a 2008 - 2010 WRX? I am considering them for my 2009 wrx hatchback, but would like to hear how much work is required (for 245's or 255's).


    Sure would make for some nice, light, high-quality wheels at a reasonable price:

    Those would definitely fit. How much do they weigh? I didn't see on their website.

    I'd be cautious with inner strut clearance with them.

    Not saying they won't fit (I had been hoping to run 18x8.5 +48), I just know it'll be pretty close depending on tires and stuff.

    I really doubt those will fit with a proper tire. Some guys had issues with a 17x9 +45...the tire was hitting the coil. Maybe if you run close to no camber they might work. But if that's the case I'd rather run a narrower wheel and a healthy dose of camber for performance.

    That brings up a good point...are you running coilovers? If so, I can't imagine you will have a clearance issue. If you are running stock suspension, or something upgraded (GTWorx, Koni, etc) then you might have a clearance issue.

    Really? Wow, I have +42's with 245's and I don't even come close to having an issue.

    Yeah I don't know...dur4ce and I had a discussion about some setups and I wasn't really feeling the 6ULRs...I'll probably end up with a +42 DPT
