Running -1.6 in the front and I think the rears were around -0.6 after installing the suspension with the rear one notch up from the middle setting. Nothing else needed just the rear roll.

If it's not a WRX, you're in the wrong thread. And stock rim/tires will look the best.

Dude, go look around the site for more than a day before you ask questions. This thread is for fitment of wheels and I bet your question was answered in the first or second page. Go look at pictures in the pics section to see what you think looks good on your car. I guarantee there are people with white WRX's and aftermarket 18s.

Alright gentlemen. I'm looking at getting:
18x9.5 Rota T2R - Flat Black (5x100/e38/56.1)
With a set of 245/35/18

I have a 2012 WRX 5-Door w/ stock suspension

Some questions
Will i need to roll my rear fenders on stock suspension?
How off will my spedo be?
Is there a better size option? If so what is it and why

Thanks for all the help

Speedo will be off.... Tire/wheel diameter will be 24.7".. Stock is 25.3"... Therefore the gearing is made shorter.

which is a good thing for the wrx....since the new wrx's come with tires that are too tall from the factory in the first place....

your post is not relevant to anything.

I understand what you're trying to do, but you need to compare the sizes that are being discussed....

235/45/17 vs 245/35/18.....

With these two tires sizes ^^ the difference on his speedo would be -2.3% ..... Or "slower" than actual speed of vehicle .... Or 1.38 mph @60mph
If the OP doesn't want much change he'd have to go with a 265-35-18 which would give a difference of -0.1%

Not significant .....

Actually a smaller diameter reads faster, not slower.

There is also a pretty distinct gearing advantage with a <25" diameter on the 5spd.

Smaller diameter means your spedometer will read too fast. Google miata tire size for a good tool to calculate this.

Rota grids
18x9.5 +38
265/35-18
Stock camber. Rolled and slightly pulled fenders

The rears need to be rolled even on stock height. I drove about 15 miles and the rears scraped at least 3 times during that drive down the freeway. From my experience I think it still wouldve scraped some even with 255s

2012 subaru wrx hatch.
rays gramlights 18.9.5 +38 Gunblue /w nexen n3000 255/35/18.
Stock suspension and no fenders rolled.
I think this is a good setup for those not wanting their fenders rolled.
I was clueless on wheel/tire until I read this thread.
Thanks Dan, I took your advice on page 34 and went with this setup


rear
