Thanks a ton for the info. This thread is exactly what I was looking for, kind of a compilation of information from the past few years of people having STi's.
I'm looking forward to my new '11 wrx and am thinking about 18x9 preferably or 18x8.5 if there are any problems with a 9". From what I've gathered there should be no fender rolling or problems with a 9" wide tire that is in the right place in terms of offset, correct?
Smeerone said "18x8.5 or 9 5x100 offset 38-45." Is that the sweet spot to keep it as close to stock as possible?
Basically I'm looking to probably lower it a tiny bit eventually, not a lot, but I don't want to rub if I am really running hard around corners.
Also you mentioned:

Is there any update on this?
