Does anybody know what the offset is for 17X7" wheels on an '00 OBS?
does 43 sound good?

You'll probably want something with a little more offset +45-50mm would probably be a little better.

check out the wheels section on prodrive.com, they list the offset. Oh, and they know what they're talking about!

You NEED +48 or better, preferably +50-55...

Check this for reference... pretty much the same: http://wac.addr.com/...obs/wheels.html

The stock 15 or 16" subie wheels have an offset around +53-55mm or so. If you plus size, you typically want a slightly less offset then stock, so 55 in a 17 might be too much and rub.
