I think the offset is way to high.

Agreed! Subie offsets :wink: you would need at least 15mm spacers

At least a 10mm spacer in the front unless you don't like the flush look :shrug:

i'll have to test fit the fronts...i run my ROH wheels slightly tucked in the front just barely...when i bought those rims they came off a cavalier....im pretty sure they were +48 also...

but does anyone have any insight about these being JDM wheels?

I beleive that speedlines are in fact a true JDM wheel. Very popular with the Subie crowd :)

Most likely my wheels are 17x8 +38 offset and i run a 1.25" spacer in the rear. The fronts are almost perfectly flush.

thats a terrible idea, anything over 3mm and your risking having your wheel come off

"Hear say"?!?!?!. If you have a 10mm(for reference) long portion that fits into the stud then the load is shared across 10mm of metal.

10-8 = 2mm do you think 2mm of thread contact is sufficient to support a 3400lbs vehicle? I personally don't.... Good luck with that

i hear what your saying.....there wont be enough thread for the rim to properly thread...i was looking at hubcentric 15mm spacers but it looks like you either have to cut the stock log nuts to shorten them so they dont stick past the spacer..or have grroves in your rims...which i dont have....so i went witha spacer that just slides over the lugnuts.....if i need longer studs...no big deal...just a little more work to do for me this spring...
