Default Wheel fitment

I wanted to go a little wider with my back wheels. Can I fit 18 x 10 73mm offset on my 06 wrx. Or should I just stick with 17x9.5 68mm offset.

oh god.

NEITHER of those will work. WAY too high.

we have this thing called the "wheel and tire" forum that has 2 threads specifically relating to wheel/tire fitment as well as how to correctly measure and calculate offset.

simply put, with a question like that, its quite obvious you are pretty new to wheel fitment (which is fine), you don't need to be worrying about a wheel wider than 8".

I'm no wheel expert by any means but 17x8 35 offset is probably about right without rubbing. Someone correct if I'm wrong

That offset will look like this, and I am not kidding.

Those offsets seem very high - are those measurements the hub bore?

Go look up my posts. I'm not showing you as I am lazy but I've run 17x9 +30 no a 225/45/17 and it fits fine when dumped with appropriate fender work. Those offsets you posted are too high and you won't be able to clear your suspension with that amount of backspacing

I think you've got that backwards. High offset will cause his tire to hit the strut. The photo you posted has a very low offset.

I agree that the OP is probably looking at hub bore instead of offset.

Yup....you're right. My pic is more like zero offset.
