17x9 +45 fit?

I'm curious if this would work without fender mods? I'm told the rims will clear the brakes. Looking at a square config using 4 of the same wheels.

9" wheels won't be easy to fit on the front. You will need a spacer to get enough strut clearance. See this thread.

I believe that'll fit on the back but not the front?

It might fit in the back, but you'll need at least -2* camber and a good sized roll to the quarter panel lip if you plan on running some real rubber on those wheels. The front would need spacers for sure to clear the strut, no matter which suspension you are running, and a ton of camber and a good fender roll.

instead of a spacer on a x9+45, try x9+30
