After this season I'm selling these and going up to 18"s.

I've been considering the Enkei GW8's but I'm not set on anything yet.
NJ_WRX, what kind of wind splitter/body kit do you have on here? Looks good.

Should I be concerned for any rubbing issues/fender roll needs?

I was considering 245's, but there aren't any all season 245/35/18's I could find really. Only 245/40/18 and I feel like that is cutting it too close.

Suspension and everything else on the car is stock (2008 WRX Premium).
Can't speak to 235's but I run 225 with no issues on those rims.

I don't think they are...pretty sure they're still 5x100. I've seen a lot of 2011 WRXs with previous generation wheels for winter wheels around here. Wheeldude.com also has them listed as 5x100 bolt pattern.

Here is my car all ready for winter! Painted my winter wheels Saturday. I also fully detailed and waxed the car to make sure winter isn't too harsh.

235's is the smallest I'd recommend running.
Me personally I wouldn't go smaller than 245's. If you're ever considering purchasing coilovers you could prolly fit 255's/265's under there with some alignment tweaking. Since you're on stock suspension I'd look at 235's, 245's & 255's. Also consider the whiteline rear camber kit to dial in your alignment in the rear. Prepare for a roll in the rear with anything wider than 235's (depending on offset of the wheels).

Ok. So what offset would fill the stock wheel well? 18in rim 245 tire. I like the deep dish look.
