All my suspension is still stock as a rock etc, how much difficulty am i going to have in fitting these wheels and how much work will need to be done in order to make them fit? Thinking of running 235/40s.
If their too difficult, might probably have to sell them

Cheers guys!
Welcome!!

Just sell them. They'll poke like CRAZY and look very strange, especially at stock height. 18x8.75 +35 would be a more proper size for your setup.

This^ would be your best solution unless you want to throw money at suspension ...

Had them on for a while now, but here are a few pics
2011 wrx hatch
Xxr 530, 18x8.75 +20
Nankang NSII's, 245/40/18
Eibach springs, 1" drop
Flat roll in rear, slightly grinded down inside of rear bumper.

I got Nankangs because I wasn't sure about fitment and they're priced low, honestly I'm pleased with their performance so I'll hold on to them.

Next year I'm throwing on BC coilovers, whiteline rear camber kit and front camber bolts. I'm barely catching the corner of the rear bumper on uber hard dips, I cannot grind it down anymore w/out jeopardizing the clip that holds it on, -0.75 camber should cure this.




This winter I plan on painting them to match little bits&pieces that I've been spraying

Thanks for your replies guys!.. Does anyone have any pictures of the 18x9.75 + 20 on a 2003 - 2005 wrx with just lowered springs or coilovers, but nothing with camber plates?

Also there is a few sellers on eBay selling the $530's that are top rated sellers and there pretty cheap. Should I buy from eBay or no?

Discounttires.com is cheaper and actually honors a thing called customer service/return policy, don't buy wheels off eBay. Don't buy anything specific for your make/model/year off eBay for that matter, only universal parts.

What do you want? Stretch? Meat flush? What brand tire are you looking at as that will make a difference.
Sidewall will be your choice for 40 or 45.
I'd say look for 235/40.
