18x9 +27. Will this fit ? If so what will be required ? Bit of camber and fender roll?

What will be the best option for tires ? 245/35 ?

Thanks.

To run that much tire...depends on ride height hut at the very least a roll in front and trim the rears. How much you need to pull depends on camber and ride height.

Kind of a challenging question but I have a Saab 9-2x wagon that had a 06 STI front clip when I bought it a while back. I was thinking of getting some 18s but I want something wider that will fill the sedan front fenders up because right now I have 04 sti bbs and I hate how they sit so far in. How wide of rims should I get and what size tire? I know I'll have to roll the rears and that's fine, I just really want to fill up the fronts.
Thanks

18x8.5 +48 will fill those right out. Run a 225/40 and you'll be good to go.

Would this setup work?

13 STI wagon
18x9.5 e32 Rota PWR
(http://www.wheeldude.com/catalog/pro...oducts_id=6784)
265/35/18 Star Specs

Mild drop on BC BR coilovers, thinking 1.8/1.5 camber. I wouldn't mind rolling the rear fenders. If the 32 offset is not possible, would 38 work? I don't really like the color option for 38... but I guess I can always get them powdercoated...

thanks!

you'll most likely need to roll all around. and AFAIK, there is no camber adjustment in the rear for your car. you'll be stuck with whatever you get. When diving into wide wheels/low offsets it REALLY helps to have full control of your alignment parameters....

Good morning gentlemen. I am considering a new wheel set up. Currently I am on 17x8 Enkei PF01s +45 235/40r17.

Car: 06 STI
Suspension: H&R springs, assuming stock struts.
Fender mods: None

Want to run an XXR 530 with a deep concave look. Probably an 18x9 at least. Any suggestions on offset and what kind of fender mods ill need. I also apologize. I'm a wheel/suspension noob. Thanks.

XXR 530's come in 18x8.75 not 18x9. That said, you will probably want the 18x8.75 +35 or +20. Both have the exact same concave face but the 20's will poke a lot more than the 35's and be harder to fit. For tires you should go with 245/40-18's. They fit that wheel perfectly. You will definitely need to roll all the fenders and probably pull at least the rears possibly the fronts since you are on lowering springs. You will also need some camber bolts or plates and probably about -1 to -2 degrees.

You haven't researched at all. You haven't provide enough information.

And obligatory you have a brand new car and want to put <$500 junk wheels on it.

^^ they're right. Do some research before buying. I personally never had XXR wheels, but friends of mine have had. And I didn't hear nothing but complaints.
IMO buy a GOOD set of wheels for your car. You can find great deals of used wheels in perfect conditions here. wheels that are made for our cars. With the right offset. Avoid wheels with low offset. Those are wheels made for Evos.
And if your planning to upgrade the suspension, also get good stuff.
Brotha treat your new ride good. If it was a clunker I wouldn't have said nothing. Good luck.

I've been looking around for some rims and a spec came up in particular that threw it off for me. How is the fitment if it were 18x10 +30? I heard that anything above 8 width would be difficult to pull off, but what if the offset was 30? What kind of fender mods would be required?

Tons of pulling, stretched tires, lots of poke, and about -4 camber or more.

Think hellaflush, slammed, stanced.

The wheels on this car are 18x9 but im unsure of the offset, possibly a +27? This is what im after.

If you want to keep legit wheels, I've got a set of Rays Gramlights up for sale in the classifieds. 18x8.5+48 with 235/35 summer tires on them. You get essentially the same brand, a wider wheel, and more tire. The fitment is perfect for any 5x100 Subaru.
