Default Advan RG-D 18x9.0 +45

Hey guys im lookin to buy a new set of shoes for my 08 sti. Im really interested in the advan rg-d, ive searched but have not been very successful in finding what I need to know.. I was looking at 18x9 +45, anyone here running this set upon there 08+ sti?. Pics would help, what size tire is ideal for a good fitment, and would I need any fender modding or spacers, (not a fan of using wheel spacers, so if so I would cross these off my list).
Thanks guys

I hope this helps a little bit.

I was running 18x9 +45 on my 08 STI with the Advan Kruezers. It was a perfect fit. That's why I went that route. No spacers and it flushed them out. I'll post the link. I had the stock 245's on there as well.

This wont help you out right now but my Advan RG-Ds are currently in production w/Advan as we speak. I placed my order last month and was told theres roughly a 90 day time frame. I did order the same exact size you are looking at. 18x9 +45 in Racing Hyper Silver. The lip has the same diameter as the 18x9 +25mm offset so you might as well get the correct size offset. I'm gonna be running 255/35/18s and from what i was told, it should be near perfect fit. I'll have to wait n do a test fit to see if i need a roll or not. Should be here sometime next month.

you shouldn't come close to needing to do any fender mods. +45 is a fairly conservative set up, especially on 08+ sti.

Yes from what I was told, it should be a near perfect fit like what I said. However the OP was wondering if any fender mods should be done and I wont know exactly until I get them. Do you think i would still need a roll if run 265's in the future

if you run 265's, you will need to roll. anything smaller than that will be a perfect fit.

I guess I'll have to roll my fenders then. Ive got my summer tires from 2 years ago with lots of tread left on 'em but will upgrade to 265's once they need replacing.
