What's it take to put 18x9 et 35 with 245/35 tires on a 2010 WRX sedan with stock suspension? Does it work?

Posted this is a couple other threads, might as well do it here!

Some very quick half-assed shots. I'm going to play with the tire pressure a little today because it looks under-inflated. 18x8.5 +44 on 225/40/18 right now, going to switch to 235/40/18 when these are done. Also, i have ZERO photography skills and an entry level camera

Gold rotas look extremely nice on SWP. Throw on some 15% tints all around to top it off

Does anybody know where to get the pink 'i' emblem?

looks great! do you have any problems with rubbing when you pack the car up? (if you do) I am wondering if there are issues with 4 people in the car, or it being super packed up for a trip or something.

Yes, they will. But only the 04 BBSs since they're 5x100. The 05-07 BBSs are 5x114

Where I live, the roads are crap, so I wanted to stick with 17's. You can't go wrong with black or gold in my opinion. I think I will eventually sell my wheels and go gold too. Black on Gold is a nice combo.

Default 2008 stock wheel weight

So on the subject of wheels, what do the stock wheels weigh without tires?

Still waiting on the delivery of my Bilsteins from race comp before I buy wheels... I will probably be going with these in an 18x8 45 offset config with 235's:



Found a great pic of a Mazda 3 with them:



Sorry that the pics are so big...
