Default 2012 wrx spacers with stock tires/wheels and bc br coilovers

Couple of questions.

1. Recommend me a good set of spacers that are good quality. Also will I need new lugs?

2. How do I measure what width size spacer I need? Where should I measure from? I don't want to roll the fenders at this point in time.

Thanks for the help!

Aside from the horrible lack of info to help you, it's a HORRIBLE idea to run spacers on your car. You will want extended studs to safely run a spacer, which will require different lugs. Start researching.

My tires are super sunken in to the body of the car now after the coilover install and I hate how they look. I just want the tire to be close to flush with the side of the car...probably 10mm-15mm speacers is all.

Now all you need to do is run a staggered setup and you'll be good to go

Sunken...as in the top of the tire is pushed inward? Kinda what it looks like from the picture. If so did you have it aligned afterwards? Other then the camber changing nothing else should have moved.

The fronts should be able to be lined back up. The backs I'm not sure of as my knowledge is limited to the 08's that didnt have camber adjustments and you needed to install adj LCA's.

FICs(SSR) 15mm spacer Actually designed for Subaru fits the hub-bore etc.. But they are like 200 bucks.. HR spacer they make a 20mm DRM style for it etc..

If I do spacers for my 17x7.5s its gonna be 20mm rear HR and 15mm fics(SSR) front

Lol. Don't want fender mods? You don't need spacers. At extremely low ride height, even more conservative fitments can run into fender clearance issues.

I'm no suspension/tire expert, but looking at your picture I see no way you are going to avoid rolling the fenders. I'm kinda suprised they aren't rubbing already. If you push them out at all, they will rub, and that means rolling.

So basically you need to either accept you will be rolling fenders, or accept how they look now.

well, you might want to save some money and get wider wheels and roll your fenders although many people are running on spacers with no issues.
