So with being lowered on coilovers and -2 degrees of camber, will it rub anywhere? Because tirerack stocks +45 and they mount for free, there's about a $200 price difference between these and +35.

The +45's shouldn't rub the spring perch with coilovers. However, they will still probably rub the tie rod at full lock. I think some people use a 3mm spacer to fix that though.

If you're interested in +35's, you could check Oakos. They usually have a good selection at pretty reasonable prices. I think they offer a discount if you PM them on here too.

Enkei really nailed it with the RPF1, it is such a diverse wheel and looks right on so many platforms

I wouldn't care much about looks of RPF1, as far as wheel is not uber ugly, it's good enough. In my eyes main strength of RPF1 is not looks, but relatively light weight & reasonably low price. Many lighter then that = forged & expensive. Average cast ones = heavier.

I guess it depends how low. I didn't rub when I was 1.5" or 1" lower and -2 camber.

Currently have these on stock suspension, rubs the tie rod pretty noticeably at close to full lock. Does anyone know if for sure a 3mm spacer will solve the tie rod issue, or does it require 5-10mm.

i find that 17x9 +45 works really well, but i think that +35 does look slightly better, and increases track by 20mm.
i run a 245/40 AD08R, and its really nice, lowered as much as possible to maintain nice geometry , with -4.3 degree of camber on the front and -3 in the rear. lots of toe out on the front too. with coilovers of course.

i am on the stock suspension
after all the researching, here is my answer

front enkei rpf1 17x8 +45 245x40 17
rear enkei rpf1 17x9 +45 245x40 17

the reason i want keep it +45 off set is this

https://www.wheel-size.com/calc/?whe...cl=30mm&sr=0mm

it will create a positive camber in front if i use 17x9 +35

so if i keep 17x9 +45 at front it will against the suspension

finally i put 17x8 +45 , everything is right!
but i dont know is there any BBK issues?
if i am going to put a
BREMBO GT FRONT 4 PISTON SLOTTED OR DRILLED BRAKE KIT


from your website


hope someone can help me out !!!
